Instrument Maintenance Check Day Week 8
Tuesday 23 November 2021 – Wednesday 24 November 2021

If you are borrowing any school instrument (for IP, for ISP, or for your ensemble playing) please bring it into the Music Department by 8.15 am on Tuesday 23 November 2021 (or on Wednesday 24 November 2021, if you do IP on that day) to be checked and serviced by our team. Regrettably, any instruments which are not serviced in our maintenance check will need to be taken by parents to be serviced at a music shop at their own expense. Please pick your instrument up on Thursday unless you get an email from us or you are returning it permanently.  Instruments should be clean and have a student name tag attached with the instrument barcode on the reverse. If this name tag is missing, please ask Mrs De Araujo in the music Staffroom to label it for you.

End of Year 6 IP (Instrumental Program) and continuing Music Tuition in High School

For parents of Year 6 students who are coming to the end of the compulsory Instrumental Program, you will receive an email about the return of your School-loaned instrument in Week 8 and your intentions regarding private music tuition and High School ensembles.
Please reply to Joanne De Araujo

Private Music Tuition and Infant Strings Program for 2022

Thank you to those who have already advised us of changes to private tuition and ISP enrolments for next year. The deadline for new enrolments, notification of changes or intention to discontinue for Term 1 is Friday 19 November 2021. All students currently receiving private music tuition and students in Years K-1 who are currently participating in the Infant Strings Program will be automatically re-enrolled into tutor schedules for 2022 along with students commencing lessons for the first time. To enrol or discontinue please visit our Music Portal Page and complete the relevant online forms. Formal discontinuation notice must be received to avoid being committed to the full term of lessons and liable for fees. 
Please contact Matilda Grieve  if you have any questions.  

The schedules for Term 1, 2022 will be created at the end of term and emailed in late January.
