  • Community performances
  • School performances in assemblies and for special occasion days
  • Fundraising events like a Trivia Night for parent and friends; and
  • A Halloween Disco for all the school’s students.

Kegworth Music Program

The Kegworth Music Program aims to create and promote a nurturing music environment for Kegworth students. Co-curricular music ensembles provide a chance for interested students to broaden their knowledge and practice of music. Find out more about the Kegworth Band, String, Recorder and Choir groups here.

All K – 6 Kegworth students are currently taught the music curriculum, which is delivered by a specialist music teacher.
