The Band Director at Hillcrest School is a very important position; bringing the fine arts and culture to missionary children living on the edge of the Stone Age. The band director teaches all the students in the Middle School, grades 6 - 8, and those in the high school who select band as their elective. The band director needs to be able to adapt instrumentation to the interests and experiences of the students available, often having stringed instruments, recorders, and pianos perform with the ensemble.
Friday, April 28, the middle school and elementary PE classes will be competing in the annual Track-and-Field Day. All students participate in various running, throwing, and jumping events. We are excited to have our sister campus from Wamena join us. Classes choose their colors as the students show their skills.
