Annual School Production
In first semester each year we stage a school musical production, in association with St John’s Lutheran Primary School and All Saints Parish Primary School. This production is open to all students from Year 5 – 12. As well as enhancing performance skills, the Bayview students take on a leadership role in working with the Primary students.
In 2019 we are staging All Shook Up a musical comedy built around a number of songs made famous by Elvis Presley. It’s NOT a biographical revue. It takes place in 1955, somewhere in America, where one girl’s dream and a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar-playing stranger help a small town to discover the magic of romance and the power of rock & roll. Among the 24 songs featured in the score are classics like “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Love Me Tender,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” and of course the title tune.
Bayview Drama Club
In Term 3 the senior students stage a short play in our own Performing Arts Centre. Students are engaged in all aspects of this production learning the skills of design, lighting and costuming.
This group meets weekly and learns a range of repetoire including contemporary songs and choral classics.
Bayview College is very pleased that Local Musician Rosie Collins facilitates a private music program offering students a variety of musical workshops that include weekly instrumental tuition and weekly Group Jam/Band Lunchtime Workshops.
Depending on student interest, tuition is available on the following instruments:
- Drum Kit
- Acoustic Guitar
- Bass Guitar
All students involved in the music program will learn to tune their instrument, read music, tabs and chord charts, plus the very useful skill of ‘playing by ear’.
¨ Group instrumental tuition fees are $14.00 per week, for a 30 minute lesson (during school hours)
¨ Band Workshop (FOR STUDENTS WITH SOME PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE) student fees are $20.00 per week for 60 minutes (30 mins class time and 30 mins during lunchtime)
BAYVIEW IS ABLE TO PROVIDE SOME INSTRUMENTS, FOR STUDENTS TO USE AT SCHOOL, DURING THEIR LESSON.
There is a small range of preloved musical instruments available for hire, starting from $20 per term. Rosie is also able to organise new instruments from a local music store, at a reduced price for families.
All families will be invoiced at the start of the term and parents have 2 weeks to pay fees in full to Rosie Collins directly, to confirm a position in the program.
Please don’t hesitate to call Rosie Collins on 0437 784 078 if you require any further information.
