School Music
Carrying a tuba , clarinet and saxophone Nicolai Rese , Karoline Cross Hagen and Anders Rønningen visited Sunbury Primary School. The three guardsmen were more than happy to spend a little of their leisure-time on a school visit. 300 pupils and teachers were assembled in the main hall of the school. The school band, together with the three Guardsmen, played Australia’s national anthem. Nicolai also
enthralled the audiences with a solo-performance on his tuba. On their way out of the main hall an excited pupil stopped the Guardsmen.
With both thumbs up he exclaimed: - Norway forever!
That was marvellous! – It was very rewarding to visit a primary school, said Karoline. Interested pupils also got an insight into the Norwegian conscription. And the excitement reached new levels when the pupils got to try on the military hats. They lined up and for a short while got the chance to be a little Norwegian Gardist.
