Seniors' Morning of Entertainment 2020
On Friday 21 August, Darwin High, hosted its annual Seniors’ Morning of Entertainment event. Proudly in its twelfth year, many of the guests declared it the highlight of the Seniors’ Month Calendar.
The program for the morning was packed with student performances including: the Darwin High School Concert Band, School Choir and Music students; and Dance students. Year 12 students Katie Chesworth, Otto Blum, Nuhansi Wijesinghe, Atish Ajaykumar, Phoebe Myerscough and Ben Kievit shared the MC role, while members of the SRC and Stage 2 Community Studies created a welcoming environment for the Seniors, escorting them during the event.
In order to remain COVID safe we adopted a cautious approach for the event and this unfortunately meant restricting the number of guests to 100 community members. Inn addition to the music and dance performances, the celebration also included a morning tea prepared and served by the Stage 2 Integrated Learning Catering Class. The students chose recipes in line with Nutrition Australia guidelines for maximum nutrition in small portions and followed a defined catering budget. With many guests rating as restaurant quality, everyone agreed it was absolutely delicious.
The morning also showcased an exhibition by Year 10-12 Art students from painting, design & photography classes across all year levels.
The display also featured student work that was selected for the Portrait of a Young Territorian Exhibition.

I was amazed, gratified and applaud the students and teachers for their hard work. If they are the students we are sending into society, she feels very confident that we will be heading in the right direction.
