A song and dance celebration

Thursday 13 May 2021 What a privilege to have Australia's number one Christian artist, 10 time Golden Guitar winner and former Playschool host, Colin Buchanan visit the College. A full house in the MPC had a wonderful time at the show which was packed with song, dance and laughter. The momentum of the evening built and built with the show taking unexpected twists and turns with highlights including the toilet paper dispenser, the cannonball confetti and some very large flags with the largest flag reading 'The Lord is King'! Here are some thoughts from some of the students who attended as well as a message from Colin himself: WOW! I want to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU for welcoming me so warmly and wonderfully to your school yesterday. When I arrived in my little black car and so many friends were waving and saying, “Colin! Colin! Helloooooo Colin!” Well, I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face! I felt so special - and all I’d done so far was drive through the school gate! Thank you to everyone who came to the concert. You were all such wonderful listeners and singers and dancers - it was so, so fun to sing my songs for you! Thank you WWCC! 10, 9, 8 God is Great! Love from your friend Colin Buchanan From Liam in Year 4: “Look at the red curtain, look at the red curtain. Don’t look at the silly man at the back throwing streamers,” came a loud voice from behind us. “Look at the red curtain,” said the voice once again. That was when I realised what the commotion was all about. It was Colin! He ran up onto the stage and sat down and then started singing ‘The Old Testament Sing Along.’ In the middle of the song, we saw a man holding a fishing rod with a sock on it. “Oh yes, that must be the crane man (song requester), I’ve heard of that happening in Wagga,” shouted Colin. The first song that was requested was ‘10,9,8 God is Great.’ Some of the other songs that he sang were ‘Super Saviour, Who’s the King of the Jungle, Joshua Fought in the Battle of Jericho’. After that the crane guy came with a HUGE parcel saying, ‘from nudge.’ The letter asked Colin to dress up as a little Colin, so that was what he did. He went behind the curtains and came out as a little Colin, in a blow-up suit and sang another song. The whole show was very entertaining, and the audience had great fun. I can’t wait for next time when Colin Buchanan returns to Wagga. Harry, Year 4, also attended the concert: “Look at the red curtain. Don’t look at the man walking up the aisle,’’ came a voice from the MPC entrance. While most of audience looked at the red curtain, some of the people were smart enough to look up the aisle. Suddenly there was an explosion of streamers. People jumped up in excitement to catch the streamers. Though most failed, some managed to catch them. Running through the aisle, Colin jumped up on stage, greeted the audience and broke into his first song. As he sang his songs, he also encouraged some of us to wave flags that represented various countries. Towards the end Colin threw some more streamers and huge beach balls. The excited crowd went crazy trying to catch them. When the concert was over, he happily signed some autographs. Many from the audience also had photos with Colin and bought nudges that were on sale. We all went home really happy to have had the privilege of watching Colin Buchanan perform songs like ‘Ten, Nine, Eight, God is Great, Survival Man, Fam Bam, and my favourite, ‘Super Saviour’.
