Music the language of student learning
STUDENTS in Kwinana are learning through music.
The school is participating in the WA Symphony Orchestra’s Crescendo Program.
WASO has partnered with Tianqui Lithium to provide the free music program, which began in March.
Inspired by the El Sistema music program from Venezuela, Crescendo delivers free, ongoing and regular music education programs in Medina Primary School and North Parmelia Primary School.
All students enrolled in preprimary join the program and start with vocal lessons as a strong foundation for the introduction of string instruments in later years.
WASO provides music lessons to every student in every year level at the two schools and to work with the Kwinana community to provide them with opportunities to develop confidence, resilience, emotional and social well-being.
