Parents!  If your child is interested in joining our Fernwood ukulele club, they are starting up again until December 21st. Keith Ollerenshaw and Caroni Young (both qualified music teachers) are volunteering their time to introduce this fun and portable instrument to our students, so only interested students, please.  Our first session will be this upcoming Monday, October 23rd.

Grade 2/3s will meet Mondays from 4 - 5 in the school library.

Grade 4/5s will meet Thursday from 4 - 5 in the school library.

The school does have a collection of ukuleles, but if you have one at home, we would appreciate your child bringing it with them.  Students do NOT need any experience playing ukulele or with music of any kind.  

You will have to arrange for pick up at 5pm from the school as the buses will have already left by then.

There is a $20 charge for a tuner, which your child will be taught to use and will be able to keep once the club is finished.

For more information, please contact Kelda or Keith Ollerenshaw
