      • Children from Year 3 onwards may participate in the Strings Program.

It is expected that wherever possible parents provide their child with an instrument.  Instrument selection is completed in conjunction with the child, their parents, the instructors, the music specialist and the child’s class teacher.  It is essential that children practise their instrument regularly.  It is expected that children remain for the entire year if accepted into the program.

A $20.00 levy payable by each student in the instrumental program is used to purchase music and photocopying.  The school has a range of Woodwind and Brass Ensembles, as well as the School Concert Band and String Orchestra. These accomplished musical groups, are provided with a variety of performance opportunities throughout the year.
