At Selby Primary School students are engaged in a diverse and stimulating performing arts program. Each grade has a weekly music lesson with a specialist teacher in our dedicated Performing Arts Space.
Our focus is on developing confidence and creativity through hands on music making with a learner-led approach. Children learn to create and compose by experimenting on our classroom instruments, including ukuleles, keyboards, drum kits, African Drums, guitars and xylophones.
Students are introduced to a range of musical concepts, genres and technologies to encourage innovative thinking and to embrace the many different learning styles. Many opportunities exist throughout the year to encourage belief in their ability to present and perform, including weekly assemblies, Choir performances and Selby Festival.
Each year in Term Three, the school musical production is the focus of the Performing Arts across the whole school. Each Grade Six student has a role in the dramatic presentation of the play while each class learns a song and dance routine that is part of the show. This is always a highlight of the school year!
