Zoe Cate and Cayde Hayes are excited to learn their school has received a grant to fund a new music program.

A grant to buy musical instruments for Our Lady of Sacred Heart Primary School in Elmore will be a boost for its new community program ‘Let There Be Music’.

Funded by the Frances and Harold Abbott Foundation, $9550 grant was presented on Friday at a ceremony in Bendigo.

School administrative officer Nerida Murray said the school was excited to receive the grant.

‘‘We were blown away by it,’’ she said.

The school is looking to employ a music teacher in the future and develop an in-school and after-school music program.

‘‘We would offer music as part of the school curriculum and provide access and participation opportunities across the whole community,’’ she said.

The school has started buying instruments, including electric guitars, an electric drum kit, ukuleles and an electric piano.
