Students are encouraged to work cooperatively and to incorporate the school values of optimism, commitment, respect, compassion and honesty in all of their music lessons.
The Music Program at Buninyong Primary School strives to give students a greater understanding and appreciation of music through singing, movement and performing. Students learn to read and write basic notation, explore different genres of music and importantly play a variety of instruments. Buninyong has a Junior and Senior Choir that performs at assemblies and outside the school and we have instrumental teachers for guitar, keyboard, drums and trumpet.
The Buninyong Primary Choir meets weekly and often performs at assemblies with opportunities to sing outside of the school throughout the year.
In Term 3 the Grade four students hold the Story of Buninyong, an indigenous studies and local history project which culminates in a public performance. The school rock band and choir perform songs written specifically for the project while the Grade 4’s sing and dance their way through the story.
