Music

Every class form the ECD to Grade 7 come for a half hour lesson each week. The children are taught to sing (or make a joyful noise, and sometimes there is a lot of noise!) a wide variety of songs, to get a broader appreciation of music theory regarding note values, dynamics, symbols, time signatures, etc. as these form part of the Grade 7 General Paper. From Grade 3, each child is given an exercise book in which they write down the songs, theory and general knowledge. These books are unlike their usual class books in that they are free to decorate and colour around their work. Hopefully this will help the children to enjoy all kinds of music, not just during their time at school but long into adulthood where they can one day recall and share some of these songs with their own children.
