As we approach the end of the School year, we would like to bring to your attention the following:
The School Concert is on Friday, 9th November. Tickets are now on sale through the office, so please call to arrange your table, if you haven’t already done so. As always, students are practising very hard every day, and we would love to see every parent supporting them by being there.
