At Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College there are many ways students are encouraged to engage with and appreciate Music.
Students encounter Music at Bath street in an informal and collaborative setting whereby interpersonal and intrapersonal listening skills are fostered. Music classes begin in Year 5 and may be pursued through to Year 12. Students are offered an extensively broad education with musical integrity, including units in Performance, Composing and Arranging, Musicianship and Music Technology. With 14 instruments on offer, students are also able to pursue music in an extracurricular setting, with campus based choirs and ensembles enabling students to develop their skills outside the classroom. At Sadadeen, students are invited to complete a Certificate IV in Music Industry through Charles Darwin University.
The College offers many events throughout the year that foster and promote a positive attitude toward performing and celebrating Music. The Centralian Eisteddfod and College Concert are central to the performance calendar and offer a professional performance environment for students. An array of Liturgical events, Assemblies and lunchtime concerts enable students to extend their performance repertoire and experience.
Students of all levels are encouraged to participate actively in the musical life of the College. Parents are encouraged to contact campus Music teachers directly to discuss how students can be supported and extended in their learning.
