On Thursday 30 October our Primary Band, Primary Choir and Little Voices united with more than 500,000 students from over 2,100 schools nationwide to perform the same song, at the same time, right across the country for the annual MUSIC: Count Us In event. This is Australia’s biggest school initiative run by the Music Council of Australia and is supported by funding from The Australian Government. Watch our clip of the performance on our Facebook page.
Decades of research shows that learning music can help students’ self-confidence, self-discipline and teamwork. It can help students engage in school, and there are strong links between music learning and academic skills in literacy and numeracy. Research shows that music is unique in its flow-on effects to students who learn it.
If your child is interested in any aspect of the Performing Arts – singing, playing an instrument, dance, drama – please encourage them to come and join one of our College extra-curricular performance groups.
