K – 2 classes are busy learning music by playing, singing, performing and dancing.
Kindergarten and Year 1 students focus on the basic elements in music and learn about musical instruments, what they are made from, how they are played and what they sound like.
Years 1 & 2 continue learning about different elements in music such as rhythm, pitch, tempo, etc. They enjoy singing a variety of ‘Australian songs & dances' such as Waltzing Matilda, Home Among The Gum Trees, Kookaburra, Taba Naba, Heel & Toe Polka - to name a few.
All K-2 classes perform at grandparent's day and impress the audience by not only singing beautifully but by being able to play instruments and include actions.
Year 2 & 3 bands
A Diversity of opportunities – Performing arts
Our musical groups have been very busy in Terms 3 and 4 with a range of concerts and performances. Our string ensemble played for the preschoolers who were thrilled with the concert. They loved seeing live musicians. Our training band performed for Years 2 and 3, demonstrating the various instruments and introducing these students to the possibility of joining the band program in 2011. Application forms are available in the office foyer.
The long anticipated ‘Things That Go Bump In The Night' concert by CB2 was a hit on Friday night 29 October 2010. The spooky music and ghoulish painted faces added great atmosphere to the concert. The food was fabulous! Congratulations to Miss Julia Zeltzer (Band Conductor), Ms Maryanne Winter and the wonderful CB2 members. The photos below show the enjoyment on the children's faces and the excitement of the concert. Well done to the poster makers, decorating team, BBQ chefs, serving team, set up team and pack away team!
