The worship and cultural life of Calvary is enhanced by its music program. Through music, many children are presented with opportunities to develop their God given talents and skills. They are encouraged to participate in and contribute towards the corporate life of the school, congregation and community.
Foundation to Year 3
A sequential programme coordinated across Junior Primary, based on the Upbeat and Music Room curriculum materials. Shared singing times culminating in presentation highlights such as church services, assemblies and the annual School Concert.
Instrumental lessons are conducted during school hours and are offered for a range of instruments including piano/keyboard, guitar and drums.
Music concert evenings
Music Concert Evenings are held twice a year. All Calvary children who are learning instruments, either at school or privately, are encouraged to prepare and to present pieces in a semi-formal concert environment. This provides exposure to performance conditions and an audience for the musicians as they prepare for their musical futures.
Music beyond Calvary
A significant proportion of Calvary’s graduating students have continued to learn their instrument, either within their Secondary School’s music program, or privately. Many of our old scholars contribute musically to local congregations’ worship programs. Old scholars are involved in school and/or community bands.
Calvary students continue to win Secondary Music Scholarships to Non-government and Government schools. Music subjects are offered as a part of SACE requirements. Music presents opportunities for service, enjoyment, recreation and permanent or part-time employment throughout life.
