Music

A specialist music teacher is attached to our school. Each class receives music lessons for half an hour per week. Here, the aim is to develop children's musical concepts, skills and knowledge with the appropriate breadth and depth and to transmit our cultural heritage through a wide range of musical styles and perspectives including:

  • Singing
  • Listening with understanding
  • Rhythmic movement/dancing
  • Playing
  • Creating music

Our music teacher, Mrs Roxy Bidgood, co-ordinates rewarding musical experiences for the children, and devotes much time to organising choirs, recorder ensemble, musical competitions and plays. The school choir is selected from children in years 4 to 6. They rehearse every week and work towards performing on a regular basis.  Children from Years 3 to 6 learn recorder.

Children in Years 4 to 6 are given the opportunity to join the school's Instrumental Program conducted by Miss Kathryn Mulcahy. The program offers tuition in brass, woodwind and percussion instruments. The duration of a group lesson is half an hour in school time.
