Dear Parents, Guardian and Students,
Welcome back to Term 4!
Finally, we are going to the end of the term with much to look forward to. First, we have the concert on 31 October. Halloween! Yes so to go with the time, we have decided to have a theme -Halloween- with participants requested to come in Halloween costume and perhaps do trick or treating after the concert (?). A prize for “Best in Costume” will be awarded to a deserving participant in each concert. The venue has not changed; it is at Uxbridge Arts and Culture at 35 Uxbridge Road, Howick. However, the first concert will now start at 11:00 AM but the second concert will still be at 1:30 PM. As the deadline for contacting the office regarding the preferred time has lapsed, (12 September) the list of the performers at each concert time, will be posted at the school’s bulletin board. Please take the time to check it.
As this is the annual concert, we would like to request the students to dress up properly for the occasion. That is if you do not wish to come in costume. Every student is requested to come 15 minutes before the concert for instructions and to have a feel of the place.
Tickets will be sold at the entrance on the day of the concert. Ticket costs are as follows:
$ 20.00 family of 2 adults and 2 children (12 years old and under)
$ 10.00 adult
$ 5.00 child
On this occasion, we will honour the students who passed the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and the Trinity Rock and Pop Exams.
We also welcome the Merry Jingling of the instrument as we welcome the upcoming Christmas Season. For those interested to learn a few Christmas hymns, inform your teacher of your interest to better prepare for the merry making. Then there are the ABRSM Theory exams on 7 November and the Rock and Pop exams also on the same month.
A Progress Report will be distributed around the 7th of December along with the distribution of the re- enrolment form. For those who are coming back, most especially those who wish to change schedule in Term 1 2021, this is the best time to do it as request is on a first come first serve basis. Re enrolment Forms are to be handed in on or before the end of Term 4 which is on the 19th of December.
In closing, despite the unpredictable moment we are all in, being surrounded by innocent and happy young people, keep me calm and inspire me to carry on. So let’s have fun together for them. We look forward to seeing you at the concert.
As always, thank you for your continuous support.
