Music plays a very important part in our lives at Boondall State School. At Boondall State School we have exceptional music standards. Our goal is to promote a love of music in our student body and to provide opportunities for excellence in music for our all of our students. We aim to extend their music education beyond the norm in both Instrumental music (IM) and classroom music (CM). We have a fully integrated music program which combines the skill and experience of both specialist classroom and instrumental teachers at Boondall State School.
At Boondall State School, all students from
Prep to Year 6 are involved in classroom music. Students learn music
through a sequential music program which includes singing and playing
instruments. In classroom music every student in Years 3 and 4 will learn to
play the recorder and Year 6 students learn to play the guitar.
Students have the opportunity to join either the Junior Choir
(Years 1 to 3) or Senior Choir (Years 4 to 6). Rehearsals are currently in
break times and after school. Our choirs are entered into competitions such as QYMA and perform
at as many local community events as possible to gain performance experience.
Year 4, 5 and 6 students have the
opportunity to join our Instrumental Music program. As part of the instrumental
program, students develop specific skills on a woodwind, brass or
percussion instrument so that they can join the School Band. Many local
community events are supported by our music groups and students learn a variety
of performance mediums, including compering and stage management.
