Music lessons in Schools

Nov 30, 2020 | Parliament

My constituency question today is for Minister Education.

Anastasia a year 10 student in my electorate contacted my staff to ask, why at present, the Dept. Education and Training restrictions on woodwind, brass and singing, limits school classes to five students per space indoors and 2 metres apart. These restrictions make group music lessons simply infeasible.

I believe this is at odds with the restrictions on other close contact activities such as school camps and contact sports, which have been allowed to go ahead.

Music is an important aspect of education that provides immense benefits for student’s development.

It is so important that we prioritise keeping students engaged and feeling positive amidst the huge challenges of this pandemic. Enabling music lessons will contribute to doing just that.

So the information I seek, what is the COVID safe plan which will facilitate the full return of music education?
