Christmas Performance - 7th December 

The Junior Choir will be performing in a Christmas Concert at St Mary’s Church in Old Basing on Saturday 7th December from 2pm to 2:30pm. This should be a fun and festive event for all the family.  If your child has decided to be in the Junior Choir this term, please make sure you put this date in your diary and complete the form attached. 

All children should wear smart school winter uniform (this means shirts and ties). A little something “Christmassy” is fine such as a flashy badge or a Christmas badge but no hats please (as it’s difficult to see the conductor with a big hat in the way!)

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Malone  via email. Please return the slip by Monday 18th November. Returning slips on time is really helpful and much appreciated – even if your child is unable to make the event. 

See letter below for more information and reply slip.
