Prep School Performing Arts

During the school day many students take advantage of the specialised individual tuition available in woodwind, brass, strings, percussion, piano, speech and drama, voice and guitar.

The skills students learn in our Music program are then incorporated into our various Strings Groups and music ensembles. These groups practice of an afternoon or morning and perform at concerts, eisteddfods and on special occasions throughout the year. Prep students are provided with the opportunity to play in a band or an ensemble including:

  • Prep Strings
  • Junior Strings
  • Six Strings
  • Prep Percussion Ensemble
  • Prep Dance
  • Prep Band
  • Junior Band
  • Koristers

Our directors are highly talented and skilled musicians and music continues to be a rewarding experience for our students. All students participate in our Preparatory choirs which perform at school assemblies and other events.

Drama

All of our students from Kindergarten to Year 6 are involved in a musical production. Students have the opportunity to dance, sing and act and the productions are highly admired by parents who enjoy seeing their children grow in confidence and skills.

Performances include:

  • Kindergarten – Year 2 –annual performance
  • Year 5 and 6 – major musical production
  • Prep Community Concert

Our staff members are also actively involved, whether it is in writing the show, directing or producing. Performance time is one of the highlights of our year.
