The term 4 music concert is a highlight of the school year. It is the culmination of the hard work and commitment that the students have put in throughout the year. Students perform various pieces of music ranging from classical to contemporary and also individually as well as in ensembles. All students who receive tuition at the school are able to participate.
The school provides opportunity for year 5 and 6 students to participate in the annual Public Schools’ Festival of Music at the Festival Theatre each year.
