Instrumental Program

The instrumental program is generally available to students from Years 1-6. Tuition from experienced tutors are offered in violin, keyboard, drums, guitar and various brass instruments. Theses lessons operate during school hours. Students who learn an instrument at school are encouraged to perform at an instrumental concert for family and friends held at the end of Terms 2 and 4.

Students who learn an instrument outside of school are also invited to perform at a Musical Soiree for family and friends at the end of Terms 2 and 4. Of course some students perform at both.

Students are also encouraged to show off their prowess by putting their name forward to perform at Assembly. The Box Hill North band support the whole school singing Advance Australia Fair each week at assembly.

Further information is available at the office or you can download the form, complete it and return it to the school.

School Fair 10 November 2018

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.
