Students are developing music skills and understanding through a playful approach to singing, playing instruments, moving, and listening to music.
Important skills include:
All students have the opportunity (and obligation) to perform within class and to their peers and school community through assemblies, school concerts and special events.
Students with a special interest in music will be encouraged to pursue additional ensembles and performance projects.
Children in grades 3-6 are invited to join the Harmony Day choir. Rehearsals will be on 5 Fridays after lunch for 30-40 minutes. Children commit to attendance at all rehearsals. If they are absent due to illness then on returning to school choir members may have a catch up session with Michael. The Choir will perform on Harmony Day and possibly later in term 2.
All the students at APPS will perform at assembly during the year. Below are the performances scheduled for this term. Assemblies are usually held on Fridays at 3pm.
