Music has long played an important role in the educational and cultural life of the school.
Students study music as a compulsory subject until Year 8. After this time Music is available as an option to VCE level. The programme at Year 5 and 6 is performance focused with students learning Wind, Brass and Strings.
Many students participate in instrumental tuition at school with a full range of orchestral instruments available for study. All students are also encouraged to join the many ensembles, choirs and orchestras in the school. These include percussion ensembles, stage and concert bands. Many of these ensembles are formed in junior, intermediate and senior levels offering students a wide range of access to group performance.
Many performance opportunities are provided for students. These include musical performances at each assembly. In addition the school runs approximately 10 concerts each year with the Foundation Day Concert being the major event in the musical calendar. Musical performances are also integral to many of the school’s major events.
