Thank you to everyone who participated in our fundraiser at the City to Surf on Sunday August 11th. It was hugely successful with many Music Ensemble Program students and parents volunteering.
At the back of Bondi Pavilion, MEP volunteers processed over 7,500 bags (in fact people were so busy it was impossible to get a photograph of everyone at once) whilst up in wind-blown Dudley Page Reserve, some of our fantastic rock bands, Grapefruit, Lion and All of the Above, played to the nearly 85,000 participants in this year’s fun run.
Robert Goodman and Erica Vorsay very kindly (and magnificently) organised the volunteers, so a huge thank you to both of them as well as to everyone who helped out on the day.
City to Surf is our one big fundraiser this year. Please make sure you and your young people sign up. It’s great fun and a great way to raise money.

Rose Bay Secondary College MEP program will be helping out at the luggage return at Bondi Beach. As in previous years the MEP is paid for every volunteer who registers and turns up on the day and the money goes towards much needed MEP equipment.
Volunteers need to be at Bondi from about 5:45 am and we are usually on until between 11 and midday. The work includes sorting gear bags into numerical order, handing them back to the runners when they finish the run and helping runners who’s gear has gone missing. City to Surf organisers put on food and water for all of the volunteers and everyone gets a volunteer t-shirt on the day. It’s a lot of fun and most importantly helps out the MEP.
Our mid-year concerts were a huge success. Congratulations to all the bands and ensembles who performed. Thank you to Murray Jackson, Sean Windsor and Melanie Forbes, and all the MEP tutors, for your hard work and support.
We really appreciate the fantastic support we receive from RBSC. Thank you to all our amazing teachers especially Mr Godby, Ms Vine, Ms Waser, Mr McEvoy, Mr Carter and Mr Wright.
