Bands, orchestras, ensembles, choirs, and dance groups are fixtures in the co-curricular program. Performing on stage builds confidence and poise and teaches young people valuable life skills about managing nerves and resilience.

Our students gain performance experience through the variety of opportunities that arise during the year. Each school holds weekly chapel services and assemblies, which draw on student singing, dancing, and instrumental abilities. Various bands, orchestras and choirs perform at functions such as Grandparents' Day, Graduation, and Middle and Senior School Awards Nights. Secondary opportunities include the Da Vinci Festival, the lunchtime musical showcase Acoustica and The Northside Voice competition.

The Program Aims To:

  • Develop student’s awareness of music as an instrument of worship towards God 
  • Develop the musical gifting of the student 
  • Provide students with a wide range of musical experiences
