Dear Conservatorium Staff, Students and Families

Words cannot adequately express the depth of the Board’s appreciation to Anita and all staff on how you have faced and managed this challenging year.

At the start of 2020 when you commenced a new year at the Con, no one could have envisaged what was in store. Added to the stresses this virus has caused in your personal lives, you’ve had to adapt to a whole new way of working and engaging with each other.

We are in awe of how you have embraced the tasks of developing and adapting to COVIDSafe practices including health protocols and on line learning. It hasn’t been easy but you’ve all risen to those challenges and done so with professionalism and enthusiasm.

We thank you and wish you all a rejuvenating and restful break so that in 2021 together we can continue to deliver on our goal to provide a dynamic and supportive environment for quality education in music in our region.

Jenny Dowell OAM Chair on behalf of the Board
