Instrument hire

The instrumental program relies on the annual ‘recycling’ of school instruments. The cost to hire a school instrument is $190 per year and the levy is charged to the family’s school account.

IMPORTANT: All hired instruments need to be listed on the family’s home and contents insurance policy, as all damage is the responsibility of the hirer, regardless of location of accident.


Instruments hired through the Instrumental Hire Scheme fall into one of three categories:



On hire for a maximum twelve (12) months

  • Flute, Bb Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet, Violin, Guitar, Bass Guitar



On hire for a maximum of twenty-four (24) months

  • Tenor Saxophone, Oboe, Bass Trombone, Viola, Cello



On permanent hire (until student leaves Year 12)

  • Tuba, Bassoon, Double Bass, Eb Baritone Saxophone, French Horn, Bb Bass Clarinet, Piccolo, Euphonium, Eb Alto Clarinet


It is the responsibility of students and parents to ensure that an instrument is purchased before these loan times expire.
