Music @ Churchlands Primary School

At Churchlands Primary School the music program plays an important role advocating positive, enjoyable, creative arts and enhancing the quality of learning at school. Pre-primary to year six receive one hour of classroom music per week, employing a full time level three music specialist, Michael Howesmith. Recently, Mr Howesmith was nominated for the ARIA Teacher of the Year award, for his positive contribution to the musical culture and musical success of the school.

This year, our senior musicians are involved in a number of ensembles and bands. VOICE Senior Choir, numbering 65 children, perform mature, complex three part songs to an extremely high level, always shining in their performances. HOTNOTES Orchestra, a full orchestra of 46 children, perform contemporary tunes to great effect and Churchlands Primary School String Orchestra always score highly at the ABODA Junior Orchestra Festival.

At the end of term 2, our talent show (The CHUMT SHOW) will bring out a huge array of amazing performers, including some very talented solo singers, band and all singing dancing groups.

Our music program would not be complete without the music team, a musical leadership group of 8 children who work tirelessly throughout the year to organise the musical shows and help out in the music room. They are pictured here presenting Mr Howesmith with a gift at the end of the BMN 2017 his 10th year at Churchlands PS, where they not only performed in their very own rock band, but MC’d the entire night.
