Performing Arts

Performing Arts

Performing art lessons take place each week, where students learn the basics of singing, dancing, acting and playing instruments in a fun environment.

We use a lot of body percussion, movement, dance and play both tuned and un-tuned instruments.

We believe that all students can enjoy Performing Arts and participate in a wide range of musical and acting experiences.








Musical Groups

There are two choirs available for students to join – ‘Junior Choir’ rehearses on Tuesday lunchtime for Years 1, 2,  & 3 and ‘Senior Choir’ on Thursday lunchtime for Years 4, 5 & 6.


Donvale Primary School also provides opportunities for interested students to participate in  our fabulous Marimba band.

Wherever possible we provide opportunities for our various groups to perform – assemblies, Open Nights, Community Events, local kindergartens and childcare centres.




School Production

Every two years the entire school comes together to create a stage production. All children are involved on-stage in the production. The production is performed at the George Wood Theatre at Yarra Valley Grammar over two nights, which allows us to showcase the children in a professional theatre setting. The production is always a stunning event which generates great enthusiasm from the children, staff and parents.





Private Tuition


Donvale Primary School has arrangements with a number of experienced instrumental teachers to allow students to have private tuition within the school. A wide choice is available including Recorder , Percussion /Marimba Band, Guitar, Drums & Percussion, Keyboard, Woodwind & Brass, Dance and Drama. Sessions may be individual or group tuition, including a lunchtime rehearsal for our rock bands.
