Sydney Catholic Schools’ exciting new comprehensive music education program is well underway and St Therese’s Catholic Primary School Lakemba principal, Kelley Conlan, can’t say enough good things about it.

Excitingly, we have 105 students participating in the Amadeus Music Education Program this year,” Mr Conlan said. “I cannot wait to hear the music these children will produce.”

Sydney Catholic Schools’ Amadeus Music Education Program has been delivered in 13 SCS primary and secondary schools in the Auburn-Lakemba area in 2021, helping students learn numeracy, literacy and emotional skills while experiencing the special joy of music.

As part of this program, students in Year 3 to Year 8 at the 13 schools participate in small group and ensemble music lessons delivered by specialist teachers. Students also receive an instrument, starting with a string instrument in Year 3.
