During 7 years at Gumdale State School, students have the unique opportunity to engage in music.

Choir 

Gumdale State School has a proud choral tradition, showcasing student talent across all year levels. There are currently three choirs which students can join.

  • Gumnuts (Year 2)
  • Gumleaves (Years 3-4) 
  • Gumtrees (Years 5-6) 

The choirs have opportunities throughout the year to perform at official school functions and community events. Past events have included the Manly Halloween Street Party and the Wakerley Christmas Carols.


Instrumental

Band 

Enrolling in Gumdale's Instrumental Music Program gives students the opportunity to join the Beginner Band in Year 4 and then follow on with the Intermediate and Senior Bands. It includes access to small group lessons on a weekly basis.

Throughout the year the Bands perform at school functions including lunchtime concerts, as well as combining with other schools in the district to participate in workshops and music camps.

The Instrumental Music Handbook is a wealth of information about the program.

Xylophone Group 

Students in Years 3-4 are invited to join the Xylophone Group which rehearses weekly. The group performs at school assembly and at the annual Night of Music.

  • SRS Annual Music Contribution of $50 applies to all students in the Instrumental and Choir Program.
