Band is an extra curricular activity that is not funded by the school; it is run and supported by a volunteer parent committee and the P&C. Band fees cover professional band conductors’ salaries, music scores, competition entries and operational costs. School Instrument Hire covers equipment maintenance and purchases.

These fees are essential to the running of the band as it is self-funding and are non-refundable once the commitment is made to join band and the fees are paid.


Band fees are usually paid on either an annual or semester basis (Term 1 & Term 3), but we can offer a flexible payment plan to enable parents to budget for the fees involved. Arrangements for fee payments can be made by contacting the Band Treasurer, Susie Wu.
