Secondary School Music Program
The opportunities for extra-curricula music in the secondary school include a number of ensembles open to students ranging from Concert Bands to Vocal Ensembles.
A Secondary School Musical is held every second year. Students who are not involved in other groups are welcome to also audition for, or be a part of, the Musicals.
Students are encouraged to use their gifts to encourage others through performance opportunities. The “Evening of Music” is a showcase for the many ensembles in both the Junior and Secondary school, as well as the Elective Music Program.
The Elective Music at Covenant begins in Year 9. In Year 11 and 12, Music 1, Music 2 and Music Extension courses are offered.
Covenant Christian School has a well equipped Music Laboratory with 13 MIDI capable keyboards connected to computers. This facility is widely used across all areas of the music curriculum. We also have a wide range of classroom instruments including guitars, keyboards and percussion in our performance classroom.
