Junior Premier Debating Coach – Mrs Genevieve Herder.
Here at SMC, we have some great itinerant music teachers who teach a wide range of instruments. High school is the ideal time to continue learning or start a new instrument. Music and learning an instrument enhances confidence, self discipline, concentration, creativity, and presentation skills. It is also a great way to get involved, make new friends and is an excellent recreational activity.
All lessons are held in the Music Department and run during the school day. Priority is given to music option students, students who have been learning previously, and Y9 students, however, students of all year levels are encouraged to give it a try. We also run a range of extracurricular music groups which will be starting up in the first few weeks of term.
