The band hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) every year where plans for the band,  involving trips, competitions and any changes to the programme structure are discussed.  This is also an opportunity for all parents and family of band members to provide feedback, share experiences and ideas. All parents and guardians are encouraged to attend these meetings when available. For details of when the next AGM is, please get in touch.

The fundraising committee meets about five times a year.

Activities Committee

The Activities Committee is made up of pupils from the band.

All band members are encouraged to suggest activities and participate in these events. Past activities include bowling and paint-balling.
