The Song Room is a national not-for-profit organisation that provides high-quality music and arts programs, delivered in partnership with schools across the country. The programs are independently proven to lift the academic performance, school attendance, social-emotional wellbeing and community involvement of Australian schoolchildren. The Song Room vision is that all Australian children have the opportunity to participate in music and the arts to enhance their education, personal development and community involvement, giving them the best possible start in life.
The Song Room uses a range of programs to achieve its vision that all children in Australia have access to music and creative arts education. One of these is the in-school workshop program, delivered for a minimum of six months by a Song Room Teaching Artist.
The Song Room program at Deer Park North P.S. began early in 2017. A weekly session is provided by an artist for each Year3/4 class with a focus on performing arts.
The students are actively engaged during the sessions with Anthony, our visiting artist, and are showing a high level of enjoyment. There will be several opportunities throughout the year for students to present and perform.
