Extra-curricular activities

Band 

The outstanding band program at Belrose Public School begins in Year 3 when all students are invited to join the junior band. Auditions are held for transition from junior to intermediate band at the end of Year 3 and from intermediate to senior band at the end of Year 4. Talented students in Year 5 and 6 also have the opportunity to join the jazz band. 

The 3 senior bands will be touring in Term 4 this year. The band participates in festivals, school events and community events throughout the year. A joint parent/staff band committee supports the band program in conjunction with the school bandmaster. 

Choir 

We have 2 choirs at Belrose Public School, the senior choir and the junior choir.  The senior choir consists of students from Years 3 to 6 , while the junior choir consists of Year 2 students.  

The choir perform at school events and organisations outside of school. A group of students have auditioned for the school's spectacular this year. Both choirs rehearse each week during school time.
