GRADE EIGHT 2019 SUBJECT CHOICE FORM
There are three subject choices to be made in Grade Eight 2019, involving languages (Afrikaans FAL, isiXhosa FAL, isiXhosa SAL and French SAL) and Creative Arts (Music, Visual Art and Drama). Please consider your daughter’s interests, talents and capabilities when making the choice.
Music as a subject will be taught as part of the Creative Arts programme. Owing to limited facilities, availability of teaching staff and the necessity for individual lessons, the number of Grade Eight music students that can be accommodated will be limited. As such, the admissions requirements are as follows:
Piano, violin, viola, cello (up to Grade 4), trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, flute, recorder, voice, clarinet, bass clarinet, percussion and soprano/alto/tenor/ baritone saxophone.
