Could you please meet Miss Everett and myself in A5 during recess this Thursday 17th to discuss the African Drumming Night. We will need to know how many tickets you have sold or are expecting to sell by the drumming night as well as what plate of salad you will be bringing so please discuss this with your parents. Looking forward to it.
If you would like to make a deposit of any money that your son/daughter has raised then you can do it via the above link. You MUST ensure you state your son/daughter’s name in the box provided as well as a reference:
ie. Josh Brown SAF Fund
If not, the finance department will not know who to allocate funds to as it is a generic link and not specific to individual students.
Alternatively, students can bring in any money raised and hand it to Miss Everett, Mr Batten or myself and we will pass it onto the finance department
If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact one of us.
For those that made it to the Senior Music concert at Duncraig on Friday night, then you were lucky enough to sample some amazing baking our students had produced to help raise money for the South African Tour. A massive thank you to Tuscan, Holly, Sophie, Cooper, Nathan and Daniel and Miss Everett for all of your hard work and patience on what was a long and successful evening.
On another note, students will be required to take to pieces of checked in luggage on the tour next year, one for their own clothes as well as an extra bag that we will be loading up with shoes and clothes etc that will be for donations. We recommend the students buy 2 x 140L Denali duffle bags from Anaconda for their trip and at the moment they are on special for $31.99 if you are a Club member (free to join online or in store):
