Instrumental Program:​20160728-1267.jpg

Children in Years 2-6 are eligible to enrol in our instrumental program which is conducted by external providers with parents entering into a contract with them. The cost is borne by parents. Lessons are given in woodwind, brass, percussion, string instruments and keyboard. The cost of this program is available on application. A student's weekly commitment is to a thirty-minute lesson during school hours and a one-hour band practice outside school hours. Children must supply their own instruments. Children who can play appropriate instruments but who do not learn through the school are welcome to be involved in the school band.

Parents who are considering enrolling their child in private lessons held during school hours should first liaise with the classroom teacher to assess whether there will be a negative impact on the child’s learning as a consequence of scheduled absences from class.

Issues that need to be considered by parents and teachers include: 

  • The impact regular absences from class will have on the child’s progress in other areas of the curriculum.

  • The number of private lessons is restricted to one specialist lesson.

  • The scheduled times for lessons and options to scheduling that may be considered (e.g. the possibility of rotating lesson times).​
