Music Notes 3 March 2017

 

Dear Music Parents

What a wonderful experience the Information Evening on Monday was. The positive feedback was most encouraging and I appreciate your support of our vision. Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to be part of the Fundraising Committee.  They are:

  • Lorna Scheepers (Cassandra)
  • Kim Botha (Kaitlyn)
  • Sogieba Latiff (Saar-rah)
  • Belinda Hatton (Abbey)
  • Margot Khamal (Ainslee)
  • Karyn Romero (Anjelica)
  • Maryanne McLachlan (Jessica)
  • Lisa Lawson (Jade)
  • Renee Worthington-Smith (Katie)

Now the hard work really starts for all of us!

I would like to welcome Mrs Juanita Atkinson to the Music Department. Mrs Atkinson is a former Head of Music at Rondebosch Boys’ Preparatory School. Her positive energy, as well as her commitment to the Department, makes her a great asset to the school. Mrs Atkinson will be replacing Ms Maileen Jamey who takes up a post at Rustenburg Junior School in the second term.

Ms Jamey had to leave the Music Parents’ Evening early on Monday as she was nominated for an award by CATA (Cape Amateur Theatre Association). Congratulations to Maileen for winning the award for excellence in comedic interludes for Grease: The Musical by the Masque Theatre players!

It is always inspirational when our teachers practise what they teach!

Have a wonderful weekend!
