The Instrumental Music Program (IMP) is the largest co-curricular program in the school involving three hundred students from Year 7 to Year 12, across fourteen ensembles.
The program has brought significant accolades to the school over a period of nearly twenty years.
The IMP is a parent managed co-curricular activity for which the school received a Premier’s Award in 2003. The program is entirely funded by membership fees and fundraising activities. Participation in the IMP is in addition to the music component of the school curriculum.
The IMP continues to strive for excellence in education by providing students with a well-rounded musical education and a musical appreciation, which will enrich the rest of their lives.
