All students at Holy Cross School have music incorporated into their timetable. This follows the belief that all students' lives need to be enriched by a quality musical education that allows them to explore, create, perform, listen to and value music as an integral part of their daily experience and our culture.

Students learn the recorder, guitar, drums and other percussion instruments during their classes.

The music program includes all styles of music through:

  • Practical and performance activities
  • Music literacy
  • Composition
  • Aural awareness
  • Musical appreciation
  • Discussing/evaluating music

Furthermore, students volunteer to perform O Canada on a daily schedule for the whole school during the morning announcements.

There are also two choirs, comprising of students in Grades 4 and 5, as well as students in 7 and 8. These choirs participate in mass as well as perform during assemblies.

Students in Grade 8 are offered the opportunity to participate in a Rock Band class, where they learn about the different instruments found in a rock band, as well as learn to play an instrument of choice.

Private piano lessons are also offered to students by a qualified piano teacher who provides them at the school.
