The aim of the Music programme is to develop knowledge, appreciation and understanding of a wide variety of musical styles. The classes cultivate an enjoyment of music through singing, playing, reading and writing experiences. The Music Curriculum is based on the ‘Queensland Years 1 to 10 Arts Syllabus’ and incorporates elements of several music philosophies. The children receive a 40 minute lesson weekly conducted by a Music specialist.
Students from Years 3-6 are offered the opportunity to join the school Instrumental Music Programme which is co-ordinated by the College. Instrumental Music tuition takes place weekly in small groups. The school choir practise each Wednesday morning involving students from Year 3 to Year 6. Our choir represents the school at public performances: St Patrick’s Concert, Innisfail Young Performers Competition and the Cairns Eisteddfod.
Choric speaking groups from several classes participate in the Choral group at the Innisfail Young Performers Competition each year.
Private piano lessons are conducted at the school and more information may be obtained from the School Office.
