Music plays an important part of the life of our school. Activities include singing, percussion and elementary music reading. Our choir regularly perform during our church services and to a wider community at local concerts.  Instrumental tuition i.e. f lute, violin, piano, guitar, and clarinet is available but parents have to bear the costs.
