Probationary Schedule

This schedule has been made as a guideline to give your probationary period a tentative structure. Obviously, there will be changes which will be made to accommodate the music department's schedule as well as other unforeseen conflicts. It is best to keep up with this schedule so important events will not be put off until the end of your probationary period. Your education officer will give you brief quizzes during your probationary period to help you keep up with the information.

Things to do Anytime
