The sounds of music are echoing around the corridors of Elmore’s Our Lady of Sacred Heart Primary School.
Thanks to a grant of $9550 from the Frances and Harold Abbott Foundation, the school has taken delivery of its new musical instruments and has started weekly music tuition.
Music lessons run Mondays and students have been keen participants, even practising for short five-minute sessions during lunch breaks to keep building on their skills.
Lessons in drums, guitar and ukulele are taking place, but the school also has electric guitars and lessons are being planned once students have mastered acoustic guitars.
Experienced music teacher Christine Bryant is tutoring the students.
A school spokesperson said the program is off to a great start.
‘‘We are now looking at opening it up to the wider Elmore community into the future,’’ they said.
