  1. Hi,
    We would like to hire a trumpet from the school for Emil (4H) to begin lessons next Monday. Could you please advise who to contact?
    Best wishes,
    Ruth Balint.

  2. Hi,

    I am sure I didn’t miss this but wanted to enquire about the decision to not include the guitar straight away this year.

    • Hi Sarah, we forwarded your comments to Ms Barry. She should be able to give you an answer.

  3. HI, also keen on guitar as my child comes from Australia St School where he had guitar and would like to continue
