All years 4, 5 and 6 students are welcome to join the school choir without audition. All that is needed is a keen desire to sing and be part of our choir community. Rehearsal times are Wednesdays 1.45pm to 2.30pm, with additional before school and lunchtime sessions as required before performances. To be a member of the choir students must:
- belong for the entire year.
- attend all rehearsals.
- display exemplary behaviour and work as a team.
In the past few years, the number of students choosing to be a member of choir has grown considerably with an awesome 89 students participating in 2020. Choir students learn singing techniques and practise these using vocal warmups and particular songs.
We rehearse songs for in school performances such as the Anzac Service, Grandparents’ Assembly, and Christmas Concert. We also rehearse for events out of school, and we have attended the One Big Voice at the Perth RAC Arena for the last few years where we sing for a huge audience alongside thousands of students from other West Australian schools. In previous years, the school choir has been involved in The Massed Choir Festival, the Westcoast Songfest, singing for the members of Craigie Baptist Church, and the Joondalup Lantern Festival.
Being a member of the school choir is about commitment, teamwork, belonging and fun.
