Music and Drama Winter Concert – the pictures!

Music and Drama Winter Concert tomorrow

A reminder that our Prep and Senior School pupils will be demonstrating their dramatic and musical talents at our annual Winter Concert tomorrow evening, Thursday 30th, at 6.30pm in The Barn. We hope many of our families will come and join us for what will be a varied programme with contributions from our drama and music departments,  based loosely on the theme of winter.

The concert will finish at approximately 8.00pm and, as you leave, you may like to contribute to a collection for  Mini Donkeys for Wellbeing, our adopted charity for the coming year.  You can see a video about their work and the impact these gentle little creatures make on their website here.

At the end of the evening please join us for mince pies and refreshments.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Junior Choir are a bit windy!

Our Junior Choir (Years 3-6) meets on Monday afternoons under the expert tutelage of  Director of Drama Mrs Richards. The roving camera caught them yesterday as they began work on an atmospheric song about the winter wind….perhaps you can tell from the picture that they are intoning some ghostly  “ooooh” wind sounds here!  We will all be able to see and hear the polished performance in the winter concert later in the second half of term.

Raffle tickets for sale at the Winter Concert

winterConcertAt the Winter Concert tonight you will get your first glimpse of the great PA Christmas raffle prizes that are up for grabs, including a luxury food hamper, fab Joules gifts and a Mrs Wilson-inspired gingerbread house!

Tickets will be on sale before and after the concert, so please dig deep for our big winter term fundraiser.

Money raised by the raffle will go towards the (long talked of) flood lights for the tennis courts. Having these lights would make a tremendous difference to all the pupils who are currently unable to play tennis after school for half the year.

In light (pun intended) of our recent accolade for tennis coaching, and the repeated requests from School Council, the PA would 137_lreally like to see this project become a reality in the near future, so please do buy tickets and encourage your family and friends too.

So far we have made up one hamper from donations. Please do continue to donate wine or lovely (long-lasting) food to make up some more. Last year we managed five hampers to raffle off; this year it would be great to produce even more!

Thank you for your continued support.

Becky Greenfield
Chair of PA
