Staff Changes 

Today we farewell Ms Lorraine Chan after 12 years of dedication and service to the string students. Ms Chan has been instrumental in the continual growth of the strings programme, the transition to Year 1 Compulsory Program and the introduction of viola and double bass as well as a number of additional string co-curricular ensembles. This growth has ensured all boys have had an opportunity to be involved.  We thank Ms Chan for her care, concern and devotion to the continuous improvement of our boys and wish her all the best for the future.
