Enrolments for Extra-Curricular Music Lessons are now open for 2020.
Our students are privileged to have access to one of the finest teams of music tutors available in Wellington and in New Zealand. This reflects the commitment of St Catherine’s College to provide the best teachers, coaches and tutors. Learning to play and enjoy music is beneficial for positive development of the teenage brain and hence we encourage students to get involved.
Enrolments can be made through https://enrolmy.com/st-catherines-college-kilbirnie
