Roseland Christmas Celebration 2014

1412_roseland_voices.jpgOn Thursday 11th December we held our annual Christmas Celebration at Probus church. The evening was a fantastic showcase of musical talent on a seasonal theme, and we are extremely grateful to the church for providing us with such an atmospheric venue this year!

The varied programme featured outstanding performances by our college ensembles, including "Santa Claus is coming to Town" by our ukulele orchestra; "A Fairytale of New York" by folk club; "Emmylou" by our Roseland Voices choir; and "Walking in the Air" by Steel Roses, our college steel band. Other highlights from the evening included a captivating performance of "Silent Night" on hand chimes by Year 11 GCSE Music students, and "Love Me Again" by a Year 10 GCSE Music ensemble.

There were also some superb soloists, including a Christmas medley for piano solo arranged and performed by Molly Curgenven; "Frozen" performed by Jacob Sellors on classical guitar; and vocal performances by Hania Barendt, Jack Retallack, Senan Davies, Harriet Eastwood and Yana Williams. The evening also featured the staff band's version of "Driving Home for Christmas" as well as some traditional Christmas carols played by violinists Ellie Crompton-Brown and Lawrence Calverley and guitar trio Imogen Sellors, Mia Senior and Jacob Sellors. The programme ended with "Sleep Won't Sleep" - an uplifting finale involving all our ensembles, soloists and a horn section put together for the event. Mulled wine and mince pies completed the evening which was enjoyed by all and has surely got us in the mood for Christmas! A huge thank you is extended to the church and to all the Roseland staff and students who made this event possible. One audience member commented,

"Please could you convey our thanks and appreciation to the music department and all of the staff who were involved in tonight's Christmas Celebration: it was a hugely enjoyable evening with superb performances. Our thanks also go to your students who conveyed such accomplishment, enthusiasm and excellent collaboration.  We are very glad to have been part of the audience tonight."

Samba de Roselando, Steel Roses and Roseland Voices Perform at Community Events

It has been a busy term for our college ensembles who have performed at many school and community events.

On 19th November our college samba band "Samba de Roselando" gave a fantastic performance in the Truro "City of Lights" parade, joining forces with samba bands from Redruth and Fowey schools. This was a very busy night for Roseland as our steel band "Steel Roses" also performed on Lemon Quay, attracting a very large crowd! Our steel band and "Roseland Voices" choir have also been out and about this month, performing in our Christmas concert at Probus Church on 11th December and in community events at Trelissick Gardens on 12th and 13th December.

On 16th December our Roseland Voices choir also entertained the residents at Roseland Parc retirement home in Tregony. Following a short performance by the choir, song sheets were handed out and the residents were encouraged to join in and sing along with some seasonal favourites, which included traditional carols and other Christmas classics such as "White Christmas" and "Winter Wonderland". It was also a chance for the younger and older generations to mingle over tea and biscuits and the event was an enjoyable and enriching experience for all!

Combined Truro Schools Arts Event 2015
This term a group of Year 10 GCSE Art & Design students took part in two art workshops which formed part of the annual programme of Combined Truro Schools Arts Events. This successful project is now in its eleventh year and the theme for 2015 is drawing. Students attended drawing workshops with professional artists at both Truro School and Plymouth University, with a third workshop planned for next term. The resultant pieces of work will be displayed in a public exhibition at the Lander Gallery in Truro in March 2015, further details to follow in due course.
Roseland Ladies were outstanding at Tregorrick Park Rugby Festival

1412_roseland_ladies.jpgFollowing regular coaching sessions from The Saints Community Coach, Dave Clarke, a Roseland Ladies' rugby team was formed and they were very excited to attend the first ever girls' rugby session at St Austell RFC.

A strong squad of 13 players attended the tag and contact festival with Poltair, Fowey and Penrice schools. The girls were split into barbarian teams for the tag warm up and played a 10 minute round-robin competition to get used to playing on such a big pitch!!

The team then played a 30 minute contact match with Roseland and Poltair schools  taking on Fowey and Penrice schools. The quality of the rugby on show was excellent and The Roseland girls managed to score 6 tries between them including a fine double from Ana (one of which was raced in from the half way line with great pace!) There were also some fine carries, with Natalie regularly having 3 or 4 or even 6 other players hanging off her on the way to the try line! Molly was the stand-out defender with a couple of crunching tackles against powerful opponents.

Due to the success of the festival (over 40 girls attended) we are looking to make it a monthly event after Christmas and we are sure the girls will develop into a fine side!

Well done all!
