Instrument Hire
Xavier Catholic College has an enviable collection of high quality musical instruments which we
make available for the minimal fee of $10.00 per term (subject to availability). Parents are asked
to sign a contract agreeing to take all reasonable care of the instrument while it is on loan. The
instrument can be kept by the student for as long as they remain enrolled at Xavier Catholic
College (or one of its feeder primary schools) and remain involved in Band activities.
Regrettably, we cannot provide enough instruments for every student, or for every student’s first choice. If we cannot provide your son/daughter with an instrument there are several reputable
companies that hire musical instruments to school students at reasonable rates, and our
instrumental tutors would be happy to provide advice on purchasing an instrument.

Lesson Venues
St Francis Xavier Primary students will have lessons during class time at school.
The instrumental tutors will be able to liaise with teaching staff to ensure minimal disruption to
learning.
