Music and Drama
What a tragedy it would be without music in primary schools. Could you imagine life without music, no singing, nothing to dance to, no nativity plays?

At Colby, Children participate in a range of musical experiences, developing an appreciation of the value of music, musical genres, rhythm and pitch, as well as performance arts. Throughout their time at Colby, children will experience listening to music from many different cultures and eras.
