Students enrolled in the Beginner Band Program are automatically eligible to hire an instrument through the school at a cost of $200 per annum. The hire scheme is also available to students who learn larger and more expensive instruments. These include: French Horn, Euphonium, Tuba, Oboe, Soprano Saxophone and Piccolo if instruments are available and not being used by Year 7 program.
The school has a limited number of instruments that are hired to Year 7 students. At the end of Year 7, these instruments must be returned to the school for servicing to be ready for the following year. Students will then be required to purchase their own instrument.
