Spring Concert Poster 2023


Our window is now closed to request tickets for our upcoming Spring concert. We are in the process of collating requests and figuring out if there are any ‘extras’. We are hoping to send home the tickets on Monday May 1st. We have a limit to the number of people of that can join us in the gym on each concert day. This is based on ‘fire regulations’. Please honour the amount of tickets you receive.  We will do our best to honour any late requests. Thank you.


This is one of the activities the children are participating in next week.


Have a wonderful break from March 18th to April 2nd.  See you back at school on the 3rd of April.
