Prep students win gold at NSW School Band Festival


Students from the Prep School won a haul of medals at the NSW School Band Festival at the University of NSW on Sunday, 29 July.

The Senior Band won a gold award, the Junior and Jazz Bands won silver while the Intermediate Band won bronze.

“The boys played brilliantly and were up against some very tough competition including older students in some of the categories,” said Knox Prep Director of Ensembles, Rebeccah Morris.

“For some of the younger boys, it was the first time they had been involved in such a big competition,” she said.

The festival included over 230 bands and in excess of 6,500 students.

Knox Prep has a strong music program with several bands including a jazz band, junior and senior orchestras and percussion, recorder and guitar ensembles.
