In 2015 Head of Department - Music, Ms Maureen Cameron spearheaded the production of ANZAC Reflections honouring the ANZAC Centenary commemorating the landing of Australian and New Zealand forces in Anzac Cove in 1915.
From this, The Gift of Music, Cairns was born. In partnership with St Andrew’s Catholic College, together we provide performance opportunities at some of the best venues in Cairns. We invite schools and community organisations to join us once a year to raise funds for those who need help at that time. Part of this charity work has been three concerts at ‘The Tanks’, concerts at All Saints’ theatre, St Monica’s Cathedral and Civic Theatre involving school and community ensembles and choirs from across the region. All profits from the appeals go directly to those that need it: Rosies - Friends on the Street, St Vincent de Paul and Friends of Himalayan Children, RSL, Cairns, Cairns Historical Society and many more.
The Gift of Music Cairns and St Andrew’s Catholic College are very proud of everything achieved as a team. Community means everything to us.
