School reopens on Tuesday 8th January 2018
We would like to say a big thank you to all the children who took part in our wonderful Winter Concert last Thursday evening, our Performance Platform on Monday and the Wonder at Christmas concert which took place on Saturday at the Latymer School.
Congratulations to them all! Such successful concerts would not be possible without their hard work and commitment.
If your child would like to join a music club in January, the following clubs will need to be re-booked online:
There is an expectation that children continue to attend Chamber Choir, Keyboards, Strings, Brass, Recorder and woodwind Clubs in January. These are extension clubs designed to enable pupils to continue to develop their instrumental and ensemble skills over a period of time which playing in a group allows them to do.
If your child will no longer be attending an extension club next term, please inform me by letter by Wednesday 19th December.
