We hold annual SFD & RAD examinations. The students perform set exercises before a highly qualified external ‘interstate for classical’ examiner in late July, early August.
Examinations help teach discipline, self confidence & commitment to work for, and achieve a goal. Exams begin approximately at age 6, and continue through to late teens. Most students would be ready for each level & teachers work closely with students to assess entry. The majority of students will participate and the examinations are strongly encouraged.
Exam entry forms are handed out at the end of term 1 with all relevant details regarding your exams. These will be processed and sent of to the applicable academy. Neither the RAD or the SFD accept late entry fees, so take note of closing dates, advertised on this website & on the examination notices. Both the RAD & the SFD will refund 50% of entry fees with a medical certificate in the case of not being able to attend the exam day.
A presentation evening will be held for all exam students at the end of term 3, where students perform short pieces from their examination. Each students recieves a report, certificate & small trophy or medalian in celebration of their wonderful achievements.
