Music

 

Music also plays an integral part in our school life. 

St. Augustine once said that when we sing, we pray twice.  At Loreto, we enjoy our singing.  This is evident in our two school choirs; Junior Choir and Senior Choir that participate in various festivals and Eisteddfods during the year.  The entire school is also involved in singing at assemblies and Masses and are accompanied by our own guitarists and other musicians. These musicians are learners at our school who take private music lessons at school. 

All learners participate in class music lessons. The music teachers at the school offer private violin, flute, recorder, drumming, trumpet, guitar, ukulele, and piano lessons.  We also have Junior and Senior ensemble, a drumming ensemble, as well as a marimba ensemble. We have already produced 5 CDs to celebrate the musical life of our school.
