If you wish to book a larger room after hours, this must be negotiated with SAM office staff. You must make your request before midday Wednesday for the following Friday to Friday period. (For example, if you were booking for week 4, you would need to make your request by midday Wednesday week 3).

We will do what we can to accommodate you, but please do not take after hours bookings for granted as we will not book out rooms after hours if instruments/ equipment within are damaged or vandalized.

For after hour access, please email the school office the information above. Once permission is granted you will receive a confirmation email. The school office will then notify security to grant you access to the large practice rooms. Please contact security at 02 9385 6000 to be let into the rooms.
