The Royal Children's Hospital

The ACO is partnering with the Education Institute at The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) in Melbourne to offer our ACO Music & Art Program to children staying in the hospital. Children receive live performances by the ACO Inspire Quartet and sessions that guide them in creating visual art in response to music.

The RCH Education Institute is committed to providing a rich learning experience for children and young people so their journey as learners continues while they are in hospital. Their goal is to make the transition from hospital back to school or kindergarten as seamless as possible by keeping students connected to their regular learning environment and their peers.

The Education Institute is funded by the Victorian Department of Education and Training.
