Summer Music Concert congratulations
Well done to almost half our school who participated in the Summer Music concert on Tuesday evening and thank you to so many parents, family and friends who came to support them. It was wonderful to see children of all ages perform so confidently and work together to support one another so well. We were very proud of you all. This morning the children enjoyed a special harp performance which was another musical treat.
Instrumental Lessons in school
If your child is interested in starting instrumental lessons in school we have places available for flute, guitar, violin, piano and cello from September. Please speak to Mrs Dobson.
If you wish to finish lessons please give half a terms notice in writing.
