2016 will be a busy, exciting year for Performing Arts on Campus. We offer many wonderful opportunities for students in the form of comprehensive classroom Performing Arts lessons, a vibrant Instrumental Music Program, groups/ensembles such as Senior and Junior Choirs, Drama Club, Troupe, and Campus Band, and a multitude of performance opportunities throughout the year that include Campus Fair performances, Instrumental Music Night, Campus Showcase, Adelaide and Southern Music Festivals, and individual school musicals and performances.
We currently offer Recorder lessons from Year 2, and flute, keyboard/piano, ukulele, guitar, voice, saxophone, clarinet, drums, violin, viola and cello lessons from Year 3 onwards. If you are interested in your child learning an instrument (including voice), please drop in to the Campus Office to collect an Instrumental Music Student Information booklet.
