Thought of the Day
"A new study has found that listening to heavy metal actually has a calming influence. Although the lyrical content of extreme music often deals in anger, researchers found that it instead enhanced listeners’ positivity and regulated sadness. Although some believe that loud music is linked to aggressive behaviour, the new research by The University of Queensland’s School of Psychology honours student Leah Sharman and Dr Genevieve Dingle showed listeners mostly became inspired and calmed by heavy metal."

Senior Music Assessments
Reminder that the Performing Arts area is closed at interval and lunchtime because Senior Music students are performing and staff will be moderating their performances. PLease be quiet in this area as students have put considerable time and energy into getting their performances right. Thanks you for your support and manaakitanga. Mr Pegler.
