Band Update - Term 2
Wednesday 5 June

Hi Everyone


Lots of good news to share this week!


Firstly, Band Weekend was a great success.  Each band made progress with their pieces under the guidance of our expert tutors and conductors. The children managed to make it to the end with big smiles and energy after hours of concentration and great work…we hope they slept well for you.

Thank you to the parents who volunteered on the day with the various tasks and a big thanks to Monica Leffler and Gabrielle Kilpatrick for organising and managing the food sustenance aspect.  


Rainbow Disco will reap rewards for Band.  Thursday 13 June (that’s soon!}  Helping hands required

This year the school disco will be a fundraiser for our band program and as such, we are seeking the help of band families. The disco is always a fun event to be involved with – the parents and children have a great time showing off their dancing prowess.

Band parents have been nominated to look after the catering – sausage sizzle, snacks and drinks.  Alison Houlihan (Snr Band Parent) will be leading the charge and needs helping hands for the catering. 

Sign up, throw on an apron and join us at the Rock and Roll Rainbow Disco or volunteer to supervise in the Hall as a parent dancer – think about those kilos coming off while having fun! Pledge your help via this link …
