There are about 13 Classroom and Specialist Teachers in the String Things Program in Catholic Schools – Diocese of Parramatta.

Our team of teachers are themselves experienced performers. We are a collaborative learning community across 12 Catholic Primary Schools and 2 Catholic Secondary Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta – Western Sydney.

Our specialist teachers continue the learning in small co-curricular groups with students that have purchased their own instrument. These lessons are timetabled through the school day with minimal disruption to learning – in fact, the small group learning is itself enrichment and collaborative learning with benefits across the curriculum.
