The Payne Road State School Music Program is an integral part of the Education QLD Arts Syllabus. As parents we assist in the promotion and support of the music program to ensure that curriculum objectives are achieved. Our role is to provide resources to enhance and enrich the quality, delivery and enjoyment of the music program.
To do this, we as parents support the teachers, communicate to parents and students, and help organise concerts, fundraise etc.
PRSS offers many musical opportunities for students and their families to enjoy. We have several concerts a year, and the children also have opportunities to perform outside the school.
General (Curriculum) music lessons are offered to all students from Prep to Year 6.
