MINERS Rest Primary School pupils will hold a fundraiser next month to help with the construction of a musical playground at the school.
The playground will feature a variety of musical instruments made from recycled and industrial materials.
Music co-ordinator Megan Manson said most instruments found in a musical playground were created from concepts of traditional percussion instruments.
She said it would feature both untuned instruments, such as drums, and tuned instruments such as bells, chimes and marimbas.
“The musical playground is a free play playground where pupils, adults and the community can experiment with sounds and rhythms that is an accessible resource within the school grounds,” she said.
A concert will be held on September 19 at the function centre at Dowling Forest Racecourse to raise funds for the playground.
Tickets cost $10 for adults, $8 for secondary school students and $5 for primary school children.
There is also a family ticket for $20. All tickets are available from the school or can be purchased at the door on the night.
