STUDENTS from schools all around Ballarat are set to hit the high notes on Tuesday night with the annual School Band Extravaganza to take place at Ballarat High School.

Bands from Mount Clear College, Ballarat High School, Ballarat Clarendon College and Phoenix P-12 Community College will perform at AH Robinson Centre, with all proceeds going to the wellness centre at the Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre.

Organiser Ron Thomas from the Lions Club of Sebastopol and District said this event was a great opportunity for school-age musicians to showcase their talent in front of an audience.

“The proceeds from the last three years concerts has meant that the club has recently forwarded $1370  to BRICC enabling them to purchase a special laptop that will help in registering clients.

“The night is a win-win for the students giving them experience and the Lions Club in raising funds.”

The cost for the night is $5 for adults and gold coin donation for under 15s.
