Clontarf Aboriginal College

Absentee Line:


The music program is now in its fourth year and is continually evolving. This year the Certificate II in Music was introduced to Year Eleven and Twelve students and was a great success.

The Clontarf Aboriginal College Contemporary band consists of students from Years Nine to Twelve.

The College band is a talented group of young musicians who always turn up to rehearsals and performances with a willingness to learn and always improve their knowledge, skills, and artistic sensitivity. The students must be praised for their tremendous teamwork as they are always prepared to help set up and pack away the music equipment after every performance. As well as the Contemporary band, the College has its own choir that performs regularly throughout the year at various masses held in the College Chapel.
