End of Year Arrangements LOAN of INSTRUMENT AGREEMENT All band members keeping hired instruments over the holidays will not be charged hiring fees but will be expected to have the instruments serviced at their own cost. The committee has decided to subsidise the cost of servicing for anything over $50 so that those with larger instruments which cost more to service will not be disadvantaged. All you need to do is present us with the receipt for over $50 and we will re-imburse you. The Loan Agreements will be handed out to Training Band this week and Concert Band next week at rehearsal. TRAINING BAND: The last rehearsal for Training Band will be Wednesday 29th November (Week 7). At this rehearsal you will be given a required list of pieces to practice over the Xmas holidays. You must also return the loan of instrument agreement you were given this week. CONCERT BAND: Concert Band will finish for the year on Presentation Night. Your last rehearsal will be on Wednesday 13th December, the morning of Presentation Night. Year 6 students will be required to return your music folder and instrument (if it is hired) to school at 8.30am on Thursday 15th December after Presentation Night. Those keeping their instruments will need to return the Loan of Instrument Agreement you will be given next week.
