Coomera Anglican College students enjoying the string department's biggest event of the year, the annual 'String Extravaganza', with this year's theme being the 'Medieval Era'. Throughout the year, students have been learning about music and music making during the medieval era. They all looked so impressive in their medieval attire, it was an extremely difficult decision for string tutors Miss Hales, Miss Connelly and Mr Setiawan to award only three student damsels and knights 'best costume'. All students were congratulated for their outstanding preparation and polished performances. Well done, string students!
