Hello everyone, we hope everyone has had a great term and are looking forward to the holidays next week. Please read all the information below:
Every student is currently preparing. Please see the instructions below:
Times: 8am - 12pm and 1pm - 5pm
Zoom link to be sent out at 7am
Students need 30 performance points to complete each book/grade. During extended lockdowns we offer recorded performances to help students catch up on their performance points. Every student is currently preparing. Please see the instructions below:
Week 1: record and send between Monday (20/9) - Friday (24/9)
Week 2: record and send between Monday (27/9) - Friday (1/10)
4. Please watch your performance before sending to ensure it is polished to meet the assessment criteria
5. All recordings will receive feedback on Onenote. Students must score a minimum of 12/15 to earn 5 performance points.
Unfortunately the mid year concert was unable to go ahead due to continuous lockdowns. Hopefully we will be able to go ahead with the end of year concert. Please save the date.
Our best guess is that exams can occur once Victoria reaches 70% of the population vaccinated which currently looks like being around the 20th of November.
Our regular lesson schedule will resume from Monday the 4th of October.
All extra lessons or makeup lessons over the holidays will be on Friday and Saturday of each week:
Week 1: 24th and 25th of September
Week 2: 1st and 2nd of October
Please contact Trent to arrange
