All children are expected to participate in the school’s physical education programme. Game skills are introduced from an early age and lead to more formal participation in the sports programme. In Term One and Four children participate in formal swimming lessons by qualified swim instructors at the Gatton Pool. The swimming programme is offered in addition to physical education lessons.
Music at OLGC is a vibrant field of study in the school with extremely enthusiastic students. Early Years students (F-3) are instructed in basic musical concepts (beat, rhythm, melody, timbre, tempo etc) through carefully crafted lessons centring on play, individual investigation and dance. Students have also undertaken ‘organic composition’ where they were free to explore the connections between musical notes/sounds and free-form notation. Thanks to the generosity of the P&F, classroom percussion sets have been completely updated allowing the students to express themselves through a wide variety of instruments.
The school currently has an instrumental program run during school time by qualified instructors. The discipline on offer is keyboard/piano as per details below:
