At St Georges Road Primary School all students participate in a one hour Performing Arts lesson every week.
The Performing Arts Curriculum aims to develop students’ ability to:
- Explore & express Ideas through music/movement drama
- Practise technical skills to play instruments/sing, learn & create movement patterns/perform drama
- Present pieces of work to communicate ideas to an audience (developing self-confidence through performance)
- Respond and interpret by discussing, analysing, comparing and evaluating their own works and the works of others
- Lessons support many themes studied in the classroom
As extra to their class lessons, students also have the opportunity to participate in special performances:
Harmony Day: Students learn about music from different cultures. Cultural diversity in our community is celebrated with performances from students proud to share their music at our Harmony Day Assembly …..because Everyone Belongs.
NAIDOC Week: Celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Students collaborate with one another to perform with pride at a special assembly.
Education Week is celebrated with our whole school concert based on the theme set for the Victorian Education Week. All grades plan, prepare and perform an item using the student’s own ideas for the choreography & presentation.
School Production senior students audition, rehearse and perform either as a main character or in a grade item….. to a full house in a professional show with staging, sound and lights.
X–FACTOR Talent Competition gives all students from any grade level the opportunity to share their talents and be judged on our own X-Factor Stage (we celebrate all those who have a go)
Music Is Fun is a special event where the students learn songs in preparation to interact with the Music Is Fun Band from South Australia. An entertaining show which provides opportunities for students to perform with a live band.
