Term 3 News
Term 3 already!! Welcome to the second half of the year. Term 3 runs from Monday 11th of July until Saturday 18th September.

Fees for the exams are dependant on the grade level the student sits. Enrollment can either be completed by your teacher, ESSM or self enrolment. For information on what takes place in an exam visit our page here.
Band Workshops – Term 3
We will commence the band program from Sunday 14th of August. This is an opportunity for students to take their instrument skills into a band setting. The program is open to all ages. Groups will be formed based on skill level. These groups will form a big part of re-establishing our end of year concerts and performances at community events.
Lesson Cancellations and Terms and Conditions
A reminder of our policy of cut off times for lesson cancellations being midday on the day of your lesson for weekdays, 9am for weekends. Cancellations following this will mean the forfeit of lesson fees. A maximum of two lessons per term will be made up due to student cancellations. Teacher cancellations are not included in this maximum of two. A reminder lessons can be made up at any time during the term in person or online. For all terms and conditions visit this page.
Keeping Our Schools Clean
On my janitor rounds (usually after 10pm on Sunday nights!!) I am noticing an increasing amount of food rubbish and wrappers left on our premises. Please do not bring food into our schools. We do not have bins in the school. Teachers take home their own rubbish. We now have close to 500 students per week coming to the school. Help us in keeping our schools clean and our instruments in good condition.
Enjoy lessons during term 3. Remember to update contact details in needed with teachers and have your teacher’s number saved.
