Music Festival

​Once again Villanova and St James will host the 2018 Queensland Catholic Music Festival featuring a significant number of school bands and choirs from all over the state. All vocal groups and choirs will perform in the St James Hall and Church. The festival commences on the afternoon of Thursday 16 August and concludes on Sunday 19 August.

The “Double J Band” will perform at 9.10am in Goold Hall - Villanova College on Thursday 16 August. We wish our musicians all the very best and thank Mrs Cathy Gleeson for her great tuition and leadership. Many thanks also to the parents who have given up their time to transport students out to St Joseph’s, Corinda for weekly rehearsals.

The St James School Choir will perform in the St James Hall on Thursday 16 August at 1.30pm. Our choir members have been rehearsing for several weeks under the leadership of our music teacher - Mr Adrian Van Praag. Good luck to all students.

If you have not already done so, please volunteer to assist with the St James BBQ stall that runs throughout the festival.

Please note also that we have two days off next week;

  • Ekka holiday – Wednesday 15 August
  • Pupil-Free Day – Friday 17 August - due to QCMF
