Wilkins Music Association is a group of parents, carers and friends of Wilkins Public School who come together regularly with the music staff of the school with the aim of helping to promote and coordinate music within the school.
Among our activities, we assist the music teachers in planning musical performance events. These events are held not only to give all students an opportunity to perform their newly acquired musical skills, but also to help raise funds to buy new musical instruments for the school which can then be hired out to students at a reduced rate.
We also help to recruit and support parent/carer involvement, encouraging volunteers to play a role – whether small or large – in assisting the music teachers with coordinating ensembles and bringing musical events to fruition.
The Wilkins Music Association is also an invaluable resource for parents, providing opportunities to understand the school's music programs and priorities, and to share thoughts and ideas with the school about ways to ensure Wilkins Public School's music program continues to thrive.
We welcome new parents at any time. You don't need a background in music, just a desire to assist the school in realising its goals to promote music.
