Croesyceiliog School Presents
BBC Children in Need Appeal
Croesyceiliog School are pleased to announce that the total amount raised this year for Children In Need was £1544.33.
Music Tuition – Changes and Procedures
Music Tuition is charged at £50 per instrument per term. Pupils and Parents will need to sign a consent form to allow tuition to begin.
Pupils are expected to practice at home and regularly attend lessons, there is also a commitment to attend ensembles. Two weeks are offered as a trial period, after that time parents accept the charges associated with the lessons. If a pupil then decides they no longer wish to continue with Music lesson a written letter must be submitted to the music department to remove the child’s name from the list. If a child leaves part way through a term, the full term fees must be paid.
Please note we are changing the way that payments are requested for Music tuition. Parents have asked for electronic payments and as an interim until we can arrange for this to happen, we are using the local authority invoice system, this enables parents to pay over the phone or in council offices. This is a more secure option for payments. We will no longer be accepting cash in to the office.
