Music concerts are held during the year, providing students who are receiving individual or group lessons with an opportunity to perform in front of a live audience. All students involved in music lessons on woodwind, brass and percussion instruments have the opportunity to play in the school concert band.
Peace Lutheran College engages in many in-house and extra-curricular performances each year.
Students from Years 6 - 12 are invited to audition for the annual school production which takes a different format each year.
Senior students from Years 10 - 12 engage in Drama assessments for public audiences, and performance opportunities arise in fundraising and school fete capacities.
Staff contacts in the local performing arts industry also allow the opportunity for students to become involved in productions by North Queensland Academy of Dramatic Art (NQADA) and the Rondo Theatre.
We invite you to book a tour of our school and see all the wonderful facilities that facilitate our students' learning. Come and see why our students and their parents think Peace is such a great place to be.
