Music

Music at Ormiston College

Ormiston College encourages all students to acquire a lifelong love of music. Specialist music teachers inspire and equip students to become the best musicians they can be.

In doing this, music becomes a highly valued component of their lives both at school and beyond the classroom and, as a consequence, students develop skills in the areas of socialisation, self-expression and creativity, critical and subjective thinking, concentration and self-discipline. We believe the pursuit of excellence in music to be an essential part of a holistic and integrated education for all students.

Music Tuition Program

Ormiston College provides a comprehensive and expansive Music Tuition Program. The College’s Music Tuition Program has long had a reputation for producing outstanding results and engaging students as lifelong musicians.

For more information regarding Music offerings at Ormiston College please view the Music Brochure below.

Sport at Ormiston College

Sport plays an integral part in the well-rounded education offered by Ormiston College.

Central to the program is our commitment to TAS (The Associated Schools), an independent schools’ sporting association which offers seasons of Saturday fixtures as well as swimming, cross country and athletics carnivals. Complementing the TAS competition is the opportunity to participate in the regional selection process which allows our elite athletes to ultimately compete at State and National level.

All students have the opportunity to represent their House in a range of interhouse sporting events which culminate in a Champion House Cup. We offer outstanding sporting opportunities for students, including excellent coaching programs and state-of-the art facilities. Most importantly, our sporting program boasts an exciting tradition of excellence with premierships recorded every season.
