Students who are aged 14 and older may be left unattended at your own risk provided a completed Indemnity and Medical Details form is lodged with Suzuki Music staff at registration. This indemnity form will require you to give consent for and agree to necessary medical treatment to be issued and for ambulance costs to be covered by you if required in your absence.

We ask that parents talk to their children about appropriate behaviour, whether in class or out of class.

Festival attendees are requested not to play in garden beds or climb over furniture. Drinks and food are not permitted in classrooms, theatres or halls. Litter is to be placed in bins.
