Battle of the Bands...NASSSA-Style!

An incredibly successful event was recently arranged by students from Northern Adelaide Senior College on behalf of the NASSSA Arts Curriculum Area Team. These students (the 'Crew') gain SACE credits and experience skills in Live Production and Event Management in running Battle of the Bands. The event was held at Northern Sound System in Elizabeth.
