Samaritan College is a three-campus, Reception to Year 12 Catholic Education school in Whyalla.

The Samaritan College Band Programme is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn and grow in a
musical environment, where they not only develop techniques on their chosen instrument,
but skills such as teamwork, communication, flexibility, resilience and an overarching sense of fun!

In 2018 the 
Samaritan College Band Programme

is being coordinated and directed by Stormfront Productions.

Excited Beginning Band students (The Samaritan Stars) visited the Secondary campus from both Primary schools
for their very first rehearsal on Tuesday, June 5th. Continuing members of the Junior Concert Band
also came together for the first time this year, practicing the pieces they've been learning in their
weekly small group Instrumental Lessons on guitar, bass, flute, saxophone, clarinet and percussion,
while the Senior Rock Band commenced working on a diverse range of pieces on drums, guitar & bass.

On November 23rd the school's three bands performed for their tutors, family and friends
at an End-Of-Year Display. Students sang, played and compered during an entertaining evening
culminating in each student receiving a Participation Award for their dedication to Band in 2018.

Prior to this, a small ensemble donated their time and talent to perform at Whyalla's
McHAPPY DAY accompanied by Alison Hams & Kymberley Jenkins.

On December 10th an ensemble of performers completed the 2018 Band year with
a pre-show concert at the College Prize Night in Whyalla's Middleback Arts Centre.
What a great performance!

We then were pleased to present 8 Instrumental Awards for Excellence
onstage during the Award Ceremony.

Congratulations to all members of the Samaritan College Band Programme in 2018 for a fantastic year of music!
