Rachel Alexandra Murphy

Attended: 1988 – 1992

Best Memories:

The school was an amazing community to learn in, and I really loved music, art, literacy and sports. I won the Sports Woman Of the Year cup when I was about 15. Edward Murphy was the head of music and directed the amazing 'Vivaldi's Gloria' Christmas concert, with orchestra and full choir, and extra items. It was the most amazing experience singing and playing cello with so many musicians and singers. I have recently uploaded the concert from 19.12.1998 to youtube. Feel free to share this link with others.
