CHOIR – for students who can sing in tune and preferably having singing lessons. Students need to have a good ear for holding harmonies whilst singing in a group. Rehearsals will take place on Thursday evenings at St Chad’s Church Hall, Putney from 6pm to 7pm (during school term time only). Cost is $16.50/week

SENIOR BAND – preferably for students who have musical ability of grade 2-3 and above on their instrument and have good ability to sight-read music and perform well in a band situation.
