Cloncurry State School P–12 offers classroom music from Prep to Year 10 and an Instrumental music from Year 4–12.
The Classroom music program engages students in the following assessable elements:
- knowledge and understanding
Through a plethora of musical activities that involve singing, dancing and playing.
The instrumental music programme provides students with a forum to learn an orchestral instrument in a weekly lesson and the opportunity to join concert band once reached a certain level.
We also offer a range of extracurricular activities including:
- choir (Years 1–12)
- concert band
- rock band.
Through our extracurricular programs students have the opportunity to have:
- involvement in Eisteddfods
- involvement in school events throughout the year
- involvement in community events throughout the year.
Any student is welcome to join the school choir. The choir generally practices once a week during lunchtime with extra rehearsals scheduled when there are upcoming events. The choir always perform at our school events and other local events. One of the highlights for our choir students is performing in the Mount Isa Eisteddfod in the Mount Isa Convention Centre.
Instrumental music program
We are very lucky for a small school to have an instrumental music program. We have a specialist instrumental music teacher who teaches students to play wind or percussion instruments in small groups once a week during school time.
Students need to apply to be in the program and then may borrow an instrument from the school. When students reach intermediate level they then join the school band that performs at school events and throughout the community.
Our instrumental music band also performs at the Mount Isa Eisteddfod and the Mount Isa Gala Event at the end of the year.
