Belmont Music Centre Is 50 Years Old
The Headmasters of Bayswater Primary and Belmont Primary approached the Headmaster of Belmont Intermediate to ask if he would allow BIS to be used on Saturday mornings for music tuition for children. At that time, all the North Shore primary schools were allocated funding by the Government for music centres. A committee was formed and advertised for music teachers. The music centre was started in 1969, with violin, cello, flute, clarinet, trumpet, recorder and choir being offered. Mrs Oonah Caldwell was the first BMC Supervisor.
