UHE Band presents at the Community Carnival @ 11:30- 12 noon

This is the final performance for the UHE Band this year. The time chosen is based on the nine families that responded to my survey (thank-you!) before Spring Break. It may not be an ideal time for all, but perhaps with a seven week notice, family schedules can be adjusted to accommodate your child’s participation.

Thanks for all the support you gave your children in Band this year!

Recruitment for next year begins in May.​


  • Whether your child has an instrument or not, all classes are considered mandatory unless your child is sick.
  • Please inform Mr. Douglas when your child is unable to attend. 
  • If you have difficulty getting and instrument, please inform Mr. Douglas. 
  • If you have barriers to your child practising at home, please inform Mr. Douglas so we can establish a practice routine at school.
