From our Music Department 

Congratulations to the German Mills Concert Band!Last evening, the German Mills Concert band took part in Thornlea Secondary School’s music night. It was a wonderful event full of music, singing and fun, and our students did a fantastic job! The Bayview Fairways band was also there, as well as the many wonderful ensembles from Thornlea. We heard guitars, string ensembles, stage bands, and soloists! It was nice to see former students as well. Thank you to all of the parents and family members who came out to support the band. We look forward to seeing you next Thursday night for our Holiday Celebration!
