Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.

Students with particular interests and talents can participate in local and statewide activities and enrichment programs.

Concert Band and Combined LSTT Band

The Concert Band Programhas been operating at Sour school for over 10 years.  The members of the Concert Band get to perform at a variety of school and community functions throughout the year. Southern Cross Band members also have the opportunity to be part of a larger ensemble Combined LSTT Band which is currently made up of students from Southern Cross School, Lennox Head Public School and Teven Tintenbar Public School.

The program also gives students in Years 3 to 6 an opportunity to try an instrument they may not normally have had experience with.  In this program students may learn a variety of Brass or Woodwind Instruments such as Trumpets, Flutes, Clarinets and Saxophones, and enjoy a series of free lessons.  Lessons take place during school hours, and for this trial period the student is allowed to take the instrument home with them.

At the end of this trial period a student may continue lessons on that instrument if they wish and, after mastering basic skills, will be eventually invited to play in the Concert Band.

For further information about the instrument trial program you can contact our school.
