At James Cook Primary School, we give students many opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities. There is the opportunity for grade 3-6 students who love to sing, to be part of our school choir. The choir sings a mixture of contemporary and older popular music as well as embracing the music of other cultures. We also perform Christmas songs at the end of the year at the local shopping centre and library.
The school ensemble is a chance for students with musical talent to be part of a group that builds a repertoire of contemporary and older songs throughout the year. They are lucky to be using brand new technology from Roland that allows them to learn songs at their own pace before bringing the rest of the band into their headphone monitor mix. The instruments involved are drums, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, vocals and tuned percussion.
These students perform throughout the year at various school performance days and nights as well as the school musical and some local public performances.
