Music is an important part of education as it helps students to communicate, collaborate and develop creativity. The Curriculum Framework for the Arts has four learning outcomes – Arts Ideas, Arts Skills and Processes, Arts Responses and the role of Arts in Society. In music lessons, the students engage in a variety of learning tasks to meet these outcomes. These include singing, playing an assortment of classroom instruments, listening to and describing music and some compositional tasks.
Coolbinia Primary School has its own school song. It was written by Mrs Smith and the Year 7 class of 2013. You can find the words in our undercover area and in the link below – and here is some audio of our song!
We also sing an acknowledgement to country song and the words, and their english translation, are here too.
Coolbinia School Song
Our students’ talents are showcased in annual events such as Coolbinia’s Got Talent and the end of year concert. Last year saw Coolbinia Primary School’s 60th Anniversary and the concert theme reflected this. Entitled ‘Sixty Sustainable Years’ it showed how since the early days of the school opening, Coolbinia Primary School has demonstrated a focus on sustainability. All of the songs performed reflected an aspect of the Social Handprint and Ecological Footprint and included our winning WaterWise song. As well as now being featured on the Water Corporation website, we also received a certificate and a voucher from Yamaha Music Australia for $300.
