Music is an integral part of the curriculum, not just because it enhances other areas of learning but because it deepens the child’s sense of humanity, teaching him/her to recognise beauty and to be sensitive to the world in which we live.

Our aims in the teaching of Music are to enable the child to enjoy and understand music and to appreciate it critically.The pupils should have an opportunity to become familiar with a wide range of musical genres,including Irish music. Pupils are encouraged to develop their musical potential and to experience the excitement and satisfaction of being actively engaged in musical creativity.

Through the teaching of music we hope to nurture the child’s self-esteem and self-confidence and in doing so contribute to the overall development of the child.

The complete policy is available, on request, from the school office or parents room.
