Care of George St School
We remind all children in the George Street School classrooms to take great care not to touch or tamper with any of the classroom equipment. It is a privilege to have the use of this school, and we show our gratitude by our carefulness.

Care of Instruments
We also encourage all children with hired instruments to follow the instructions that outline their care. Each instrument has its own specific requirements, but general guidelines for all instruments would include such things as:
Keep protected from sun, heaters or fireplaces.
Keep out of reach of inquisitive siblings and friends.
Keep in a safe place if needed at school, e.g. for orchestra.
If you have any queries regarding hired instruments, please see Kit McCready in the instrument room upstairs.
If you have any queries regarding payment, please see Leigh in our 'office' in Room 17 which is a downstairs room facing the carpark.
