INSTRUMENTAL LEVY

In 2007 there was an Instrumental Levy introduced for children in Grade 3 to Grade 6.  The Instrumental Levy for 2016 will remain at $230 for your first child and $200 for the second and any other subsequent children.  This will enable your child/ren to have a 55 minute instrumental, or voice lesson weekly. Information outlining the instruments offered was sent home recently.  The levy includes loan of instrument.  Most of the instruments are the property of the school and hire would be far more expensive if this was not the case.
