The overarching aims of the Australian Curriculum: The Arts, music knowledge, understanding and skills ensure that, individually and collaboratively, students develop:
- the confidence to be creative, innovative, thoughtful, skilful and informed musicians
- skills to compose, perform, improvise, respond and listen with intent and purpose
- aesthetic knowledge and respect for music and music practices across global communities, cultures and musical traditions
- an understanding of music as an aural art form as they acquire skills to become independent music learners.
Strathpine State School has a long history of maintaining an enthusiastic and successful criteria. With both junior and senior choirs working hard and having fun, they compete in many competitions throughout the year and perform regularly on our assemblies and special occassions. Rehearsals are Wednesday mornings at 8am in the Music Room and are conducted by our talented Music Teacher Mr England and our lovely teacher Aide Lyndal Smith.
Our Junior and Senior bands are under the tutorlidge of Mr Sam Denning. Mr Dennings runs our instrumental program at our school and at the neighbouring Pine Rivers State High School. Students from year 4 onwards are able to audition and join the bands and are involved in weekly lessons and regular performances and competitions.
Both Senior and Junior Dance Squad are lunch time committments where students have fun and learn dance routines that then become a part of our Winter and Spring Concerts.
Musical, Pantomimes and Plays
Each year Strathpine State School presents a musical, pantomime or play. This is a large scale performance that is performed over two nights and is always a hit with parents, students and the local community. Each year a different script or musical is chosen and students spend regular after school rehearsals preparing for the event. It is hosted in term 4 each year and is open to all students from years 4 to 6 to audition and participate. We even have stage, lighting, sound and props crew that students can also join to be involved in this awesome event.
