Kinross Wolaroi School

Co-Curricular Performing Arts

Kinross Wolaroi School has a history of excellence in music and it has been recognised as having a leading classroom and instrumental music education program which meets the needs and abilities of all students. Comprehensive music begins in Kindergarten classes where students take their first musical steps.

In the Senior School, Co-curricular music involves a choice of instrumental, musicianship and vocal tuition for students. These students are provided with the opportunity to play in a band or an ensemble. The Kinross Wolaroi School Orchestra, Symphonic Winds, Chamber Strings, Chamber Choir, Wyvern Singers, Brass Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, Concert Band, Woodwind  Ensemble, 
String Quartet, Show Choir, Stage Band and the Marching Band are some of the groups that currently provide opportunities in performance for our students. The School groups compete in eisteddfods and perform in the local community. These groups are also heavily involved in the ceremonial occasions which occur regularly within the School.

Each year the Kinross Wolaroi School Music Festival showcases the performance talents of our students. Students in musical groups also participate in the annual Music Camp which provides opportunities to play and practise music. This camp, which also incorporates an outdoor education component, has proven very successful in developing team spirit and leadership opportunities within the music program.

Drama has a vital place in the Co­ curricular life at the School. The program seeks to emphasise the value of dramatic performance for all students. The culture of performance established in the Preparatory School flows through into the Senior School where drama continues to expand. The House Spectacular Competition encourages all students to participate. More dedicated students can perform in the School Musical which is a highlight of the School year.
