Band Workshop 2022

Dear Parents/Carers

 

On Sunday 22 May we will be holding a workshop for Junior, Senior, Concert and Stage Band members in the school hall. The children will spend time with tutors specialising in their instrument as well as rehearsing with their band. 

  

Please make every effort for your child to be at the workshop.   We have your responses to the expressions of interest form sent last week.  If you did not provide a response please do so via the online form 

Helpers Wanted:  We need volunteers to help with set up and tutor room supervision. Please see information below and link to volunteer form.
