The school’s music program ensures that children can sing, learn to read music, play instruments and perform at special school events such as assemblies. We have a wide range of tuned and un-tuned musical instruments for the children to play.
The school choir is for students from Years 4 to 6. A highlight in the past has been performing at the Massed Choir Festival. Students also perform at assemblies.
Year 4 students are assessed on their musical aptitude. A number of students are offered a scholarship of free weekly tuition by peripatetic music tutors through the Department’s School of Instrumental Music. Tuition is only offered to children in Years 5 and 6. Instruments offered through this program are clarinet, brass and guitar. Successful students are automatically members of the choir.
Students who play a musical Instrument of clarinet or brass also participate in the Mt Hawthorn Area Band. They rehearse before school on Thursdays at Mt Hawthorn Primary School.
