Music

DEPARTMENTAL INFORMATION

“Music affords a kind of pleasure that human beings cannot do without” – Confucious

 

Music is so much a part of the background of everyday life that it tends to get taken for granted.  Yet, for many people it is a powerful focus for creative energy, and one which both stimulates and guides the imagination.  Music at All Saints Catholic School aims to develop aesthetic sensitivity and creative ability in all students.
