Manly West Band

Manly West's highly acclaimed band was started in 1993 by a group of dedicated parents.

Much of the Manly West Band's success is the result of our wonderful, dedicated staff and parents.

We invite you and your child to join this special part of the school community.

To learn more about our band program, visit the parents and citizen's association (P&C) website.
