Primary Ukulele Musicians 3rd place

Primary students from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 were very excited to hear that over the holidays, their ukulele rendition of ‘In the Jungle’ that we worked on last term won 3rd place. The competition was open to Queensland primary schools through the Uke’n Make Music Contest as part of SPRUKE (Brisbane Ukulele Festival). This is some of what the judges had to say about our entry:

"Big effort to pull this performance together. The kids enjoyed it and so did I. It differed from other entries in it told a story. I liked that."

"Very unique! Clever combination of stories and music. Confident chord playing, balanced well with voices. Thank you for your creativity!"

"High marks for creativity and presentation. Students were enthusiastically participating."

We won a concert sized ukulele, $100 and certificates for all of the students involved. Thank you so much to all of the sponsors and the people that put the Brisbane Ukulele Festival together for making this possible. We had lots of fun and are looking forward to trying again next year.
