Spring term newsletter – January 2018
Happy New Year! Welcome back and a warm welcome to all our new students! Our 22 students have come to the end of a very successful run as the child ensemble and Artist Development Dancers in the Hackney Empire pantomime Cinderella. An amazing experience was had by all, and myself and the principal cast of the panto were extremely impressed with their professionalism.
This term is a busy term for the school, our Senior Showcase is on 11th March along with our ‘My First Show’ for our very young students. Our Junior Showcases will take place from 30th March to 1st April and each student has been given a date to perform. If you have not returned your child’s permission slip, please do so as soon as possible. We will soon be sending out costume hire letters for the junior show, plus information re times of shows and ticket sales. To ensure that you are kept up-to-date please regularly check noticeboards or follow us on Twitter (details above).
We still need parents/carers to volunteer to have an estate agent board advertising the Showcases, Churchill’s Estates have kindly agreed to sponsor the shows which will go towards the much-needed funds to hire the theatre. If you are able to have a board, please contact Lizzie (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Invoices have been emailed out, if you have not received an invoice please let us know as soon as possible. To qualify for the discounted amount please pay fees within the first week of term. If this should cause a problem, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you have changed address or contact information please let us know so that we can update our records.
