Children's and Youth Classes
This is a youth group where we put our energy into creating performance opportunities for children from Prep to Year 12. Putting on plays and all that is involved with that process helps to build confidence, positive interaction between children and provides a vehicle in which to discover themselves.
Registration 1 Feb
Term 1: 8 Feb to 29 March
Term 2: 19 April to 28 June
Term 3: 19 July to 20 September
Term 4: 11 October to 20 December
Term 1 Fees: $70 (includes membership) if you are taking out a Family membership, please talk to the Youth Co-ordinator at Registration
Term 2, 3, 4 Fees $55
Our youth groups are very inexpensive to attend at the low cost of $55 per student per term (an average of $5.50 per session). There is also an annual $15 membership fee which covers your child with insurance and gives you access to discounts.
If you're interested in joining one of our groups, please come to the first Wednesday session of a new term, from Term 1 to Term 3, to enroll. Our end of year shows give students a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate their skills live on stage. Because Term 4 is dedicated to our end of year show, we can't take on new students at this time.
