    National Concerto Competition
    by Bernadette Shaw - Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 2:38 PM

    Centre: Lixin Zhang - Right: Muse Ye

    This year we are very proud that two BHS students, Lixin Zhang (Yr13, SMP Piano) and Muse Ye (SMP Piano, left in 2014) have reached the final of the National Concerto Competition, a prestigious event open to all pianists under the age of 25. 

    This will take place on Saturday 3rd March at The Luney Auditorium, St Margaret's College where each finalist will perform a full concerto accompanied by the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra conducted by Benjamin Northey.

    One of our chamber music groups from last year will be playing in the concert whilst the judges retire to deliberate over their decision. Plenty for us to celebrate here.

    It would be great to have a strong Burnside presence in the audience to support Lixin and Muse especially.

    Tickets are available through ticketek: 

    I believe there is a $10 discount price for groups of 10 or more.

    Oarsome O’Fare 16th February 2018
    by Bernadette Shaw - Monday, 12 February 2018, 12:16 PM

    We are representing the Burnside High School Rowing team. As part of our fundraising efforts to send a group of rowers to the Secondary Schools National Championships Maadi Cup at Lake Ruataniwha  we are participating in the Oarsome O’Fare Silent Auction at McKenzie & Willis on 16 February 2018.

    The Oarsome O’Fare is an annual event where adults support the fourteen rowing schools in Christchurch and come together to raise funds. The Silent Auction starts at 5.30pm and finishes at 7.30pm, during this time people move around all the schools and silent bid on the items that are of most interest them. At 7.30 the last bidding is the winner of the auction and money and items are exchanged.

    There are at least 2,000 people who attend this function each year, so the bidding sheets and goods donated are seen by many people.

    In exchange for your donation of services / goods, we will advertise and promote your business at our stand for all to see.

    Without the generosity from you / your business this fundraiser could not take place.  

    Thank you in anticipation of your response.

    From all of the Burnside High School Rowers
