Songbirds School Choir
The Banyan Fields Songbirds Choir has been running since 2009. We are made up of students from prep up to grade 6. The students practise twice a week, singing songs from musicals, movies and a variety of pop and rock songs, learning a combination of melodies and harmonies. The Songbirds compete at a number of competitions throughout the year which is both enjoyable and a little nerve-racking. The choir finishes the year with a performance at the BFPS Christmas Carols. All students who love to sing or love to have fun are welcome to join the choir.
Year 2 begins the Banyan Fields camp experiences with a School Sleepover.
Camps at Banyan Fields Primary are a fun way for students to further develop self-confidence, try new and challenging things and develop friendships in a supportive environment where pushing personal boundaries is encouraged and supported. Camps usually take place during Terms 1 or 2. Parent helpers are usually sought by our camp co-ordinators ( parents assisting on camps must hold a valid Working with Children Check ).
Each of our classrooms has composting for all organic materials, senior students are responsible for collecting and composting this material on a weekly basis.
