COVID-19 Emergency Closure Updates

Dear Parents / Guardians and Students,
 
Hope you're staying safe at home as much as possible
 
Due to the government's announcement on Tuesday 24th March of the social distancing restrictions to 19th April, I can confirm that CSM's doors will physically remain closed for classes. 
 
We are however continuing with our very successful online classes as usual for CSM students.
 
MMA students - classes will resume when we reopen (hopefully after Easter on Monday the 20th April?)
(Please LIKE us on MMA Facebook page for regular posts to help keep your child musically occupied 
 
It is CSM and MMA's mission to complete all classes in semester 2 before the summer closure.
 

The health and welfare of all our staff and students is of top priority to us, and we are continuing to actively monitor national and international sources of information to help ensure the wellbeing of the CSM community. 

We will continue to provide updates as they arise through our website, mailing list and facebook pages.
