We have been very fortunate to supplement our school's music program by purchasing 30 new guitars to be used by Stage 3 students. Mrs Coleman has begun teaching the techniques involved in reading and playing music on a guitar and they sound wonderful! The students have picked up the fundamentals of guitar playing very quickly and impressive acoustic tunes can be heard drifting out from our music room.
The funding for 30 guitars came from participation in the Junkyard Orchestra Challenge by Lend Lease at Erina Fair. All schools that participated were given a grant to enhance music education in their school.
