Making membership accessible

The Australian Waratah Girls’ Choir is a not-for-profit organisation which continues to provide musical training within a supportive framework due to the tireless efforts of our volunteers, donations from supporters and extensive fundraising activities.

We strive to keep fees to a minimum so that WGC membership is within reach of all families.

Registration Fee

A one-time only, non-refundable fee of $55 is payable upon registration. This covers administration costs, chorister insurance and rehearsal shirt. Additional rehearsal shirts are available from the Uniform Manager at own cost.

Uniform Bond

A refundable uniform bond of $50 for Junior Choristers and $100 for Senior Choristers is payable prior to receipt of your choir uniform. Payment will be fully refunded once the chorister has ceased membership and returned their uniform to the uniform manager in a clean, acceptable condition.
