I would like to pass on through you as acting principal of Henley High School my sincere gratitude to your staff member Tania Madigan and students, singers Zoe and Jazmyn and guitarist Jose. At very short notice Tania organised the students to attend the School Sport Australia Officials’ Dinner at The Grand and play as background music as delegates arrived and then played two items once the delegates were seated. The delegates from all over Australia and DECD representatives were absolutely impressed with the quality of these students and their ability to perform in front of a crowd of 70 adults.
At the end of their performance many of the delegates spoke directly to Tania and the students including the EO and President of School Sport Australia. I did notice that the General Manager of the Pacific School Games was present on the night and immediately approached Tania and the students asking them to perform at the Pacific School Games which is being held in Adelaide in November 2015 – a very prestigious request.
I am indebted to Tania and must say how lucky Henley High School is to have a teacher of this quality. She is obviously a very passionate teacher who goes over and above what is expected of her in ensuring that the students she is responsible for have opportunities to engage in high quality learning experiences. How lucky these talented students are!
Thank you once again
