Hopefully it’s been a good start for all! You’ve probably seen the significant improvement to the traffic light and pedestrian crossing precinct on Arden St outside the school (now that the works are almost complete). This is a great result for the “Make Arden Street Safe” team – congrats to Georgie Maynard, the school staff and everyone else who assisted with pushing that project along and bringing it into reality.
A reminder that the P&C meets on the second Tuesday of each month during term – so our first meeting for Term 2 is scheduled for Tuesday, 11 May. Hope you can join us then. It should be a productive meeting, with updates on the requested fundraising priorities for the school, the launch of the new CPS P&C website and the recent work on “out-of-school-hours” offerings to complement and support the school curriculum.
As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Friends of the Band
Welcome back! Rehearsals recommenced this week (Stage Band will start week 2). We are looking forward to an exciting Term 2, which includes working towards our bands performing at school assemblies, too.
Special shout out to Luca Parsons for performing The Last Post at the school Anzac Day assembly. Great job and thank you.
Senior Band Camp
Band camp takes place earlier than usual this year, from Friday, May 28 until Sunday, May 30. The Committee is currently working through all of the details and more information will be shared shortly. We will be looking for parent volunteers to be involved with the camp again this year, so if you’re interested please let us know at email@example.com
Murray will continue to load assignments in Smart Music this term. SmartMusic helps students learn their parts of band music at home. They can slow down and loop the music as well as see fingering for notes, before recording and submitting the assignments back to Murray to review. If you are having any technical difficulties please let Murray know or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
