Sharyn Fleming (née Wenlock) graduated from Av԰ Christi in 1997. During her time at the College Sharyn had a passion for the arts and was involved in the music program – playing the flute in the band, attending vocal lessons with Mary Turner and performing as part of the Senior Choir. Looking back, one of her favourite memories of her school years was spending time in the music room.

Her passion for the Arts and music in particular has continued since graduation, with Sharyn having performed in many shows and musicals across Perth and regularly performing for aged care clients.

Productions she has appeared in include: We Will Rock You (Platinum Entertainment) at His Majesty’s Theatre, The Quarry Amphitheatre and Mandurah Performing Arts centre; understudy to the role of Killer Queen in a 2019 production of Jesus Christ Superstar (Platinum Entertainment); and most recently her two dream shows of Les Miserables (Marloo Theatre) and Jekyll and Hyde (Laughing Horse Productions), playing Lady Beaconsfield in the latter.

Sharyn’s one piece of advice for Av԰ students is ‘to follow your dreams’, a sentiment that she has followed through, having launched her vocal coaching and entertainment business ‘Local Vocals’ in 2018. Through this business she offers private vocal tuition, performances for private functions, MCing, DJing and karaoke.

In addition to this business, she is currently working part-time as a nurse and also teaches at Curtin University, having completed her Nursing degree at Edith Cowan University in 2003 and Diploma of Midwifery at Curtin University in 2007.

She quotes her proudest achievement since finishing at Av԰ as, ‘Starting my own business and seeing my students improve their singing and follow their dreams’.
