NSW: Back to School Day 2021

21 January 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm


This year our Back to School Day will be held online. It will consist of 2 workshops – one with a Primary focus and one with a Secondary focus, although we encourage you to attend both workshops as there will be many things are transferable to different contexts. Each workshop will be broken into 2 sessions with a short break in between.

Our Primary workshop (1pm – 3.15pm) presenters are Maria and Jude Roldan from the Philippines. The focus of this workshop will be developing part singing in young musicians. Maria and Jude will guide participants through carefully chosen repertoire and activities that are applicable to both choral and classroom settings. This workshop will no doubt also be relevant to Secondary teachers working with inexperienced singers.

The Secondary workshop (3.45pm – 6pm) will be presented by Rosalie Scott from Perth, WA. She will present ideas for getting everyone on board with a musical, singing culture in the secondary school. Inspire even your toughest students with a sequenced approach to introducing singing and movement. Explore all the tricks-of-the-trade to get your new classes music-making! In the second session, Rosalie will explore how we as Kodály-inspired educators can support positive psychology in our classrooms, particularly in an age where mental health and wellbeing are of vital importance. Participants will experience games and aural activities designed to support our students to ’thrive’ and explore why this approach is so transformational for us, and our students.
