The first in the area, the musical garden at Mount Pritchard Public School has been a success amongst kids and teachers. Featured in the Fairfield Champion, Principal Natalie Piccinin states “The musical garden gives students another outlet to be creative and they are creating some wonderful music which is nice to hear….They are not only collaborating with each other musically, but they are learning to share the space with each other and they enjoy taking care of the equipment.”
Mount Pritchard are also using their new musical garden to add another element to their school’s readiness program with pre-schoolers.
Supplied and installed by PlayRope – the garden features the Percussion Play Hexad Ensemble which includes the Babel Drums, Bell Lyre, Harmony, Tubular Bells and Handpipes and in addition the Tembos.
The introduction of this outdoor musical garden has inspired the children musically while enjoying the obvious benefits that come from spending time in the natural environment - providing the kids at Mount Pritchard Public with opportunities for early interaction and positive experiences with music.
