INTERACTIVE musical walls are chiming through Woodvale Primary School.

Kingsley MLA Jessica Stojkovski recently presented a $3500 grant to the independent public school to put towards nature playground equipment.

Principal Neil McCallum said the school chose to install interactive musical walls in the junior primary playground to add to the activities available for kindergarten to Year 3 students.

“The new equipment will add to the nature playground which the school’s P&C have been developing in recent years,” he said.

“The music walls allow for open-ended, creative play using different surfaces,” he said.

“Our music teacher Jolanda Speelman has shown the students how to create music with the walls and the students have been very keen to use the walls to create their own sounds and joining up with their friends to make music together.

“They have been a big hit.”
