To enrich the formal academic curriculum at Scone Grammar School, students are able to participate in a range of co-curricular programmes. Students are encouraged and supported to find their strengths; to work hard at developing these along with other areas; and to do their best at all times.

All K-6 students have regular weekly class Music lessons. All K-6 Students also have opportunity for involvement in various choral groups:

  • ‘Kindergarten Krooners’
  • Year 1 ‘Onderfuls’
  • Year 2 ‘Melodic Minors’
  • Year 3-6 ‘Voiceworx’

All Year 3 students participate in a dedicated weekly Year 3 Strings programme, learning either the violin or cello. Scone Grammar School has a close affiliation with the Upper Hunter Conservatorium of Music (UHCM). The UHCM offers private music tuition (in school hours or out of school hours) on a wide range of instruments including strings, woodwind, brass, percussion, guitar and voice. Ensembles offered to Primary students include:

  • Primary Strings
  • Primary Band
  • School Orchestra

Ensembles are created to meet the specific skills, needs and interests of students, while providing valuable performance experiences, including at school functions, community events, local eisteddfods and corporate functions.
