Testing For Junior School Students
Instrumental Music department as we have been testing our Junior School students on all instruments to see what they might like to take on for 2016. If you are a Year 4 family and your son has expressed an interest in an instrument (most of them have) then you should have received a letter from us by today via the school bag. Boys in Yrs 5 and 6 who have shown a similar interest or are keen to try something different will have also received a letter. Please sign and return these as soon as possible.
Instrumental and Vocal Information Evening
The information evening is Monday 8 February at 6.30pm in the Chapel of St. Joseph. This is for parents (and students –optional) who are new to Instrumental Music at ATC. All rehearsals for bands and ensembles have commenced this week and all relevant students and families should have received an email from Mrs Scalia about timing and venues.

We will also be involved in some fundraising this year to go towards our upcoming Sydney World Projects Music Tour.
