Notes

Trumpets and saxophones are sounding once again in the James M Hill music room. Grade 10 students have recently begun their instrumental unit, whereby students select an instrument to work on for the remainder of the semester. Should students wish to practise at home, they may do so, providing an agreement form is signed by parent and student. YOu can find this agreement under the Document section. If instruments are taken home, they must be returned promptly the next day by 8:20 a.m., along with the corresponding book.
