Talented musicians and performers at Narre Warren South P-12 College have put on a show for the Minister for Education, James Merlino MP.

The Minister joined with the State Member for Narre Warren South Judith Couacaud Graley MP to celebrate student’s heading off to the Battle of the Bands State Championships and to discuss the school’s plans for a new performing arts space.

Ms Graley spoke in Parliament about the school’s innovative Fusion music program and invited the Minister to meet the talented students earlier this year.

The Fusion program provides Year 7 students with the opportunity to develop their artistic talent while still receiving their secondary education.

Students from this program took part in and won the Junior Battle of the Bands competition last term and once again delivered as they performed for the Minister.
