Performing Arts

The Performing Arts program is primarily focussed on Music with classes from years 1-6 each week. Years 1 and 2 explore a variety of percussion instruments, including bucket drumming, tapping sticks, cups, and body percussion. The year 3 and 4 classes learn to play the recorder, and the year 5 and 6 classes the ukulele. All classes follow the Kodaly method to learn rhythm and melody concepts in singing and playing, and they also have opportunities to create, perform and study music history. In addition, the junior primary classes have a 45-minute class each week in Drama and Dance, alternating by semester. 


Students in years 4 to 6 are encouraged to join the school choir, which usually has approximately 70 participating students. Each year the choir performs at special events, both at school and in the community, including assemblies, ANZAC Day services, graduation ceremonies, shopping centre Christmas carols singing, and the Massed Choir Festival.

Instrumental Program

The school has a comprehensive instrumental program involving selected year 5 and 6 students. Testing is conducted in term 3 of year 4 and successful students are invited to participate. Thirty-minute lessons in guitar, flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, and baritone are conducted by teachers from the IMSS (Instrumental Music School Services) department each week. Students can also participate in a pop/rock band at school and a training band at Wanneroo Secondary College.
