This year, the school is privileged to have 28 Marimba players. The number of boys interested in Marimba playing has increased vastly over the past 2 years. At the start of 2018 five marimba groups where formed and consequently another set of Marimbas have been purchased to accommodate the wide interest. All students from all grades are accommodated. They play a wide range of songs in different genres and perform at various occasions and festivals throughout the year.
