TERM 3 Term 2 was another big term at the Conservatorium with a big number of concerts, events and workshops for our students and members of the wider community. Term 3 is shaping up to be another action packed term. We thank you for trusting the Conservatorium with your music and drama education needs. We feel that education in the arts is an important part of any education and are fortunate to be able to provide this service to the Clarence Valley community. I look forward to another great term in the Clarence Valley. Adam Wills—Director
