Killarney Heights Public School has an excellent band program. From Year 3 onwards students can become part of this outstanding program training with professional music teachers and performing in many different venues.
Students in Senior and Stage Bands also have the opportunity to be part of a band tour travelling to parts of New South Wales and performing at schools, retirement homes and other venues.
Some of our students have gone on to perform in regional bands. The band program also gives students a great advantage in High School music programs.
