Music Department Studios
It is really disappointing that in the last two weeks there has been damage to two guitars in the music department. This damage is costly to fix, and inconvenient to music staff and students. Could I please remind everyone that the rooms in the music department are ONLY for music lessons or individual practice, or small group practice with permission of a music staff member. These are NOT lunch rooms or a warm place to gather with your friends. If you are using a studio legitimately please respect the instruments in there and use them properly. If an accident does happen you need to let one of the music staff know. Thank you for your help with this.
NO BAGS in dining room
Because of the number of people in the dining room at lunchtime and the set-up of the space, bags and books cannot be taken inside.
These should be placed in lockers at the end of morning classes or placed neatly immediately outside the dining room, out of people's way
WEEKLY OFFERING IN TERM ONE
This term our Weekly Offering is going to the charity Home & Family which provides Parenting and Counseling services within the Canterbury community. The social services charity works with children, adults and families who are facing obstacles to positive outcomes in their lives. Previously known as the Society for the Protection of Women and Children, the organization has a 100 year history of providing programs for families in need of help. Please give generously to the weekly collection in your tutor groups.
Does anyone have a children's guitar, with nylon strings, that I could buy/borrow please? Guitar lessons underway at my house but minor stumbling block of no guitar for Miss 9 year old and Mr 7 year old to use.... X Factor here we come ;-)
