School work experience

About the program

Since 2007 the Band of the South Australian Police has been hosting music students in years 10-12 from around the state who participate in a week-long work experience program.

Students get to:

  • observe the Band ensembles
  • take part in three days of rehearsals
  • participate in small group sectionals with mentorship by Band members on the same instrument
  • attend information sessions on all aspects of Band operations.

The work experience program is held at Thebarton Police Barracks, Band Room, located at the corner of Port Road and Gaol Road, Thebarton.

The program culminates with a free public performance. The concert is primarily performed for family, friends, classroom and instrumental teachers, but is also open to the public.

At the end of the program students are provided with a recording of the concert, and have access to photographs and video of the concert and activities which they can use as part of their school portfolios and for assessment purposes. The program complies with Department of Education and Children's Services Workplace learning guidelines.

See the 2020 Work Experience Flyer here.

The Talent release form can be found here.

To apply for Work Experience in 2020 you can apply here from Monday 3 February until Thursday 9 April.
