The Band Committee is a sub-committee of the WHPS Parents & Citizens (P&C) Association. A dedicated group of volunteer band parents (we always looking for more!) form the core of the committee and manage the day-to-day operation of the band on behalf of the school and the conductors.

Of course, without your help through the year most of our activities couldn’t function so please lend a hand where you can. This can be as simple as assisting with an event during the year, coming along to a band meeting or joining our committee. If you are available to assist, contact a committee member. The Band Committee meets once a month and all parents are invited to attend meetings.

Band Communication

The Band Committee regularly communicates with parents to keep them up to date with upcoming events, performances and any changes to schedules. Our main method of communication is via email. For this reason it is extremely important that we have up to date email addresses that are checked regularly. All email addresses are kept confidential. If email is not an option for you, please contact the Band Secretary to make other arrangements.

We also place items in the 'Band News' section of the school newsletter and publish the 'Band News' newsletter each fortnight, but please remember to check email, particularly before any band event as our "Event Reminder" emails will provide the most up to date information concerning that event.

Band Committee Meetings

Band meetings are a forum where you can make comments or suggestions and all parents are encouraged to attend. Dates of meetings are in this handbook and advertised in the newsletter. They are usually held the 2nd Monday of each month (during the school term) @ 7:00 pm in the WHPS teachers' staff room. Feel free to come along.
