We find ourselves in the middle of Term 3, with Spring in the air and the Speech & Drama Evening on the way.
SPEECH & DRAMA EVENING, Thursday 28th September, 19h00, St Mark’s Methodist Church, Edgemead:
Your child will be receiving details of his/her costume this week. Please contact Ms Laverne Lyons: firstname.lastname@example.org
, if you have any questions regarding costumes.
Next Friday, 1st September, we’ll be holding a work-party at school, to create and paint props and backdrops, starting straight after school and going through into the evening. Let me know if you’re able to help.
Lighting at St Mark’s is always a challenge and we’re wondering if there is a parent who would be able to organise a spotlight/lighting for us on that evening. Please let Ms Lyons know if you’re able to help. We would also like a parent to film for us so that we can sell souvenir copies of the play to pupils after the event.
Tickets will be on sale at R30 per ticket. Please encourage your extended family and friends to support this exciting event.
Many thanks to all parents for offering to supply various items for the evening. By now you should have received a “thank you” from me and a reminder of what you promised to send to school. (I have attached the list). Items related to props and backdrops may be sent as soon as possible. Non-perishable items may be sent at your convenience and perishables may be handed in at the church kitchen on the evening.
Speaking of donations, our school supports various community projects and I’d like to thank you for your active involvement in the following:
Each class is collecting scrap paper for recycling. Last term’s winners were Grade 4. They will be given an extra half-hour off school as a reward.
