Music

​The school is serviced by music teachers. All classes have regular lessons with the relevant music specialist.  A Junior and Senior choir form part of the school music program. These groups aim to achieve excellence and seek performances at community functions, eisteddfods etc.

Our school is also involved in the Departmental Instrumental Music Program, where children have the opportunity of learning a brass, woodwind, percussion or string instrument under the instruction of a visiting teacher employed by Education Queensland. Pupils from years 4 to 6 are eligible to receive tuition in brass (trumpet, trombone, euphonium, and French horn), woodwind (clarinet, flute, and saxophone) and percussion (drums, xylophone etc); while children from years 3 to 6 are eligible to learn string instruments (violin, cello, bass).

Once pupils have mastered the basic skills of their instrument they join the Bribie Island Combined School Band and Junior Orchestra to perform at special functions.  Recruitment sessions (where parents are able to become more familiar with the school policy in relation to these programs) are held annually and are advertised through the school Newsletter.
