The Performing Arts Program at Parap Primary School is based on the Australian Curriculum. The specialist program runs for one hour per week and students from Transition to Year 6 participate in the areas of music, drama, dance and media. Parap also takes part in the “Musica Viva” program and Australia’s “Music Count Us In” program.
Through the years Parap has celebrated cultural diversity, by showcasing “Celebrating Cultures” to our school community. Parap has also performed singalongs and bush dancing in the great outdoors. In recent times, students have performed in our magnificent hall to a packed audience. Productions included, “Shakespeare Rocks”, “Rio Carnivale” and “Hogwarts!” In 2018, Parap celebrates its 60th Anniversary with the No. 1 party musical of all time “Grease jnr”.
Each year, our senior choir students and dancers from years 5 and 6 are involved in the annual Beat Festival at the Darwin Entertainment Centre. The Beat Festival is a multi-art form spectacular with musicians, live music, vocal soloists, dancers and a massed choir.
Music Tuition is offered at Parap Primary School and is delivered by qualified music teachers from the Northern Territory Music School. Students from years 4, 5 and 6 are provided the opportunity to learn an instrument, including flute, clarinet, saxophone, guitar, trumpet, trombone and percussion.
