All instrumental music students are encouraged to participate in various instrumental music workshops offered throughout the year.
Students have the opportunity to participate in the Junior Choir in years 3 and 4 or in the Senior Choir in years 5 and 6. The number of choirs depends on the level of interest each year. These groups rehearse weekly and enjoy their active involvement in both the school community and within the wider local community.

This fee is a contribution towards the costs of photocopying, the purchase of sheet music and audio tracks, piano tuning, and / or replacement of digital equipment for performances (keyboard and amplifier), and Eisteddfod registration.
