The Elementary Band and Strings Program is a unique instrumental music program that is distinctive to the NVSD. The program complements the BC Ministry of Education’s Arts Education curriculum and provides school-based instrumental instruction to students in the intermediate grades (Grades 5 – 7 for Band and Grades 4 – 7 for Strings).
There are two options for registering for the 2021/22 Elementary Band and Strings program:
• January 15 – March 5. Fee: $470 (same price as 2020/21). This fee can be paid with a monthly installment plan until September 1.
• Late Registration: March 15 – September 30. Fee: $545. No monthly installment plan available.
• Registering by March 5 allows us to plan for programming and staffing. Low registration numbers may result in program cancellations at schools.
• Late Registration may not be available and will be based on program availability at your school site and class size.
• You may withdraw your child from the program and receive a full refund up to June 15. After this date, a $75 fee will be charged.
