String Ensemble

  • Secondary string students – Thursday 2nd break

Why should my child be involved in music ensembles?

Band – Like any team activity – perhaps even more so – band members must learn to play within and as part of the larger group. This commitment to teamwork, the discipline and dedication, the memorisation and mastery of an instrument – all combine to develop life skills that will help your child as he or she moves into adulthood and forms lasting relationships. Those skills also help us overcome professional and personal obstacles and hurdles, and to recognize the importance of working as part of a team.

Music uniform

This year we are introducing a new music uniform for both Primary and Secondary School students. It’s the same uniform across both Primary and Secondary School. If your child is involved in a College Music Ensemble, a music uniform must be purchased. Uniform orders will be completed via a Google form. Once you have submitted this order form, payment must be made ASAP (before 9 February 2018) so we can place our order with the supplier. We cannot place our order until we have received everyone’s pre-payment.

Payments can be made at Uniform Shop or online through Flexischools.

Please select the correct size when ordering online.

GIRLS: Will need to purchase the black tunic.

BOYS: Will need to purchase the black shirt and maroon school tie (Years 7-12 boys will already have this tie as part of their school uniform).

Order your music uniforms here. Please submit one order form per child.
