Choir Performance - Graduation Mass - Thursday 11 December

Thank you to those students who have indicated that they are available to sing at the Graduation Mass. It will be the final performance for the school choirs and a lovely way to farewell the Year Six students. Students can wear neat casual dress and will need to be at the church by 5.45 pm.

Instrumental Music Programme 2015

Notes have been distributed to students in Year 3- 5 for those interested in playing a musical instrument at Orana in 2015. There will be limited places on each instrument and spots are filling fast so please return notes to Ms Draper asap to be considered for a place next year. Continuing students also need to return a form to secure their place.

Musical Instrument Returns

Students leaving Orana or not continuing on their instrument in 2015 will need to return school instruments to Ms Draper during week 9. Please make sure all straps and cleaning rods are returned with the instrument.

If you are continuing next year you can keep your instrument over the holidays so you can practice. If your instrument needs any repairs or servicing, please let Ms Draper know as soon as possible. If you are considering purchasing an instrument for your child please check with Ms Draper which brands are appropriate as there are many cheap, nasty instruments available online which are not suitable. Classical guitar students do require a particular type of guitar so please come and ask before you buy.
