At the 2017 annual showcase concert, scholarships were awarded to five outstanding Year 8 students to enable them to continue their instrumental studies in 2018 as they leave the Tironui fold and move on to secondary school. As well as displaying musical ability and perseverance, all have the full and ongoing support of their families as their lessons will be outside school hours.
The new scholarship recipients are:
Kiarn Lavea – tenor saxophone
Khushi Rathod – trumpet
Leol Phung – violin
Keshika Naiker – violin
Leilani Kwan-Him – cello
And Ipolani Magalei (Year 10 cello) continues into her second year as a Tironui Music Trust Scholar, studying with Robin Snape
Our warmest congratulations to all these deserving students. We hope they enjoy music-making for many years to come.
