Working With Children Card
Full implementation of our Child Safe Policy occurred in 2017. This means any volunteer, no matter whether it’s a one off or of a regular nature, must have a current working with children card that has been copied and recorded at the front office.

Private Instrumental lessons with Mrs Padden 2020
Next year I will be offering beginners to advanced Ukulele, Bass Guitar and Rhythm Guitar (acoustic or electric). Please note, your child is required to have their own instrument, except in the case of the ukulele which they can borrow from the school.
Lessons take place at school for 30 minutes and are rotated weekly so your child does not miss out on the same lesson in class each week, and are conducted privately or in small groups.There are lessons scheduled in a 10 week term to allow for make up lessons if someone is ill, if there is a holiday an inservice or a camp,sporting activity or excursion a student needs to attend. Payment is at the beginning of the term $250 for 8 lessons Private and $200 for small group (2-3 people). Please contact Mrs Padden email@example.com for further information and to be assured of a spot starting Term 1. If anyone has any old instruments around like guitars etc they would be able to donate to the school, we would appreciate it!
