Classical Guitar Ensemble - Change of time

Rehearsal for guitar ensemble has changed to before school on a Thursday due to lunchtime being very noisy. It will now be from 8.15am - 9.00 am in the band room every Thursday morning. Students will be eligible to join guitar ensemble once they have met a minimum standard.

Music Rehearsal Schedule 2015

All rehearsals are now up and running.

If you are late to school you still need to come to rehearsals. It is better to be late then not there at all! Band and choir members should have a rehearsal schedule for the term. Keep it in a safe place so you know what is going on.

Monday: 8.15am - 9.00 am Senior Choir (Yrs. 4-6)

Tuesday: 8.15am - 9 .00 am Junior Choir (Yrs. 2-3)

Wednesday: 8.00am - 9.15 am Band Practice

Thursday: 8.15am - 9.00 am Classical Guitar Ensemble.

Playing in an ensemble requires teamwork and requires a complete set of new skills that you can't learn performing alone. We can't get the work done if all members of the team are not there!

  • $8000 Reading Materials (PK - 6)
  • $9000 Edudance (PP-6)
  • $2000 Bike Education (6)

The P&F levy contributes to helping fund some of these items, and then we raise extra money during the year though various events. Monies raised this year will be going towards these resources for our children. We look forward to your support.

This year we are going to trial alternating our meetings each term with Week 3 on a Wednesday night, and then Week 7 on a Friday morning. Therefore our next meeting will be on Friday 20th March, after assembly. Children are welcome and we hope to see a few new faces!
