CHOIR

At Grafton Public School we encourage participation in a wide range of cultural pursuits. A wonderful addition to our fabulous Band Program is our Choir Program which operates on the Queen Street site.

Year 2 to 6 students are offered the opportunity to participate in choir. For many years, Mrs Elaine Ware led a wonderful (Year 3 - 4) Junior Choir which has performed at the Grafton Eisteddfod and delighted elderly residents of Dougherty Villa.

In 2012, Mrs Leigh Robertson established a selective choir for students in Years 3 to 6. Known as the ‘All Grades Choir’, it performed at the Saraton Theatre with the Northern Sydney Beaches Regional Choir and embarked on a ‘walking town tour’ in Term 4, entertaining locals at a number of main street venues.

In 2013, the choir  performed at the Grafton Eisteddfod, Grafton Shoppingworld and embarked on local school tours as well as aged care facility performances.

In 2014, the GPS All Grades Choir was a part of many local, inter-regional and state level performances, including:

 

-  GPS assembly

-  GPS Gala Evening

-  CoS Gala Night

-  Grafton Eisteddfod

-  GPS Creative Arts Sydney Tour

-  Arts Alive 2014 (Sydney Opera House) selected Year 5 and 6 students only

 

Again in 2015, it is our intention for the All Grades Choir to perform at these events as well as local pre-schools and charity events.

All Year 3 to 6 students are encouraged and welcome to participate in our Choir Program. While both choirs rehearse during class time, extra practice sessions may be required during lunchtime periods prior to competitions or performance.

Please note: The ‘All Grades Choir’ is a selective choir. Auditions for selection are held at the beginning of Term 1.
