A real strength of our school and what makes us unique, is the multiple opportunities our students have to be involved in The Arts and to grow their musical talents and abilities. If you walk into our school on any given day, you will hear music instruments playing, songs being sung and a bit of dance action going on!

Itinerant Music & Dance Tutors

To assist families who wish for their children to have additional music or dance tuition, we host tutors to run their private lessons at our school during school hours as an extracurricular activity. The school has no other responsibility for these extracurricular activities. Enrolment in any programme, along with any financial arrangement, is only between the parent/caregiver and the private tutor.
