Every now and then we like to give our advanced music students an extra opportunity to perform, in a "gig-style" setting. Low light, cool cafe vibes. If you know someone performing, or if you would like to jump on the stage yourself, please come along. Intermission with our coffee van and snacks will be available on the night.
Our annual youth camp is coming up at the luxury Noonaweena Private Resort in Yengo National Park, Kulnara, on the Central Coast. The Royal Retreat is a creative and life-based retreat for teens (12-18) that is designed to transform the way these kids think about their life, themselves, and others. PLUS many more exciting adventures, competitions, activities and creative sessions. The Royal Retreat is more of an executive retreat for kids, rather than your typical school camp.
We teach the kids how to improve their skills and talents and think about their personal dreams and goals for their life. Activities include a mixture of physical, motivational, educational, creative and inspirational focuses to keep the kids busy for the duration of camp. This is a great opportunity for our students to connect and make new friends, as well as master their talents, explore their creativity, and be inspired about living better lives.
Accommodation at Noonaweena is 5 star, with private, luxury ensuites servicing each room. Rooms include luxury king single beds and furnishings, with up to 3 guests per room. We have separated quarters for girls and boys and we do our best to ensure that each student is happy and comfortable with their room buddies.
The Royal Retreat is fully catered for the stay, including delicious buffets for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and dessert each day. We cater to all individual dietary needs and requests with extra special care and attention to detail.
By the end of the retreat, students have always made new friends and great memories and are always raving about the good time they've had.
