Music and drama at SCOTS PGC are a vibrant extension of school life. There are choirs, a biennial musical, performance groups and many opportunities for those interested in the Performing Arts to find their feet at SCOTS PGC.
Students can join the following groups:
Those who undertake music in the Senior School are encouraged to participate in at least one co-curricular ensemble. Individual private lessons can be arranged for most instruments, voice and speech communication.
Our College has a long tradition of choral participation. Boys and girls can choose to be part of performance groups in all year levels and these are non-selective and encourage participation across all abilities. Whether they’re just getting started, or are looking to sharpen vocal skills, we focus on promoting an enjoyment of singing and performance.
Years 1-6 students are invited to join the Junior and Middle School Choir (JAM Choir) as a co-curricular activity. There is no audition process and all children are welcome.
Annual events include assemblies, chapel services, the Uniting Church Spring Fair and Speech Day performances. Here, the emphasis for children in JAM is on enjoyment, participation and confidence building.
The repertoire of this senior choral group includes sacred and secular songs in a variety of styles, encompassing traditional, jazz and contemporary works.
Senior Girls’ Choir compete at regional eisteddfods when possible as well as participating at significant school-based events including the College’s ANZAC Day Commemoration and Speech Day.
The College presents a musical every second year, with students playing a major part in its production, direction, casting, lighting, publicity, front of house, orchestral arrangement, stage management, props and set design.
Students can participate in a number of bands across the College, including the iconic Pipes & Drums, the emerging and popular Rock Band and a String Ensemble.
College ensembles and bands are not audition based and participation by all students is welcome. Most ensembles play at College events as well as on Assembly.
