George William Rummery Music Scholarship

The George William Rummery Scholarship is a gift of the Rummery Family in memory of their son and brother, George, whose life ended tragically in 1982 when he was in Year 8 at Waverley College.

The Scholarship is awarded to a student of the College who displays particular aptitude and interest in music and is committed to supporting co-curricular music at the College.

The Scholarship covers ongoing full or partial remission of music tuition fees for students from Year 7 to Year 12.

The 2019  scholarship will be awarded to a student in Year 7 or Year 8.

Private Music Lessons

Private music lessons are well underway. Boys are to be reminded to check their schedule, be punctual to their lessons and inform the teacher at least the day prior to their lesson if they are unable to attend. We have excellent, well qualified peripatetic teachers at Waverley College and lessons are available on a large variety of instruments. Any new student to the college who wishes to learn an instrument or join the Rock Band program are welcome to visit the PAC and speak to Mrs Kossenberg or any of the music staff.  Click on the link below to complete the online Private Music Registration Form  Waverley College Private Music Lesson Form
