Music Lockers for hire

 There are a limited number of lockable music lockers available for hire in the Senior Music Department corridor at a cost of $10 per term. These are particularly useful for students in ensembles and who have lessons upstairs in the Music Department, allowing them to store instruments securely during the school day. Funds from the hire of these lockers go directly to the Tintern Friends of Music Committee who, in turn, support the musical endeavours of our students through purchases of equipment and funding of special musical experiences. Please email or call our Music Administrator, Mrs Elizabeth Feenane, for further details ( or 9845 7837)
