O2 Choir Event – 31st January 2018
It is nearly time for the Young Voices choir at the O2. We have had some wonderful practise performances and are looking forward to it very much.
Thank you to all the parents who have booked and paid for their tickets. These have now arrived and are at the school office ready for you to collect. Remember to bring them on the day! There are still some tickets available for the performance on the 31st January, so if you haven’t booked and would like to do so you will need to order these directly. You can do so by calling 0844 856 0202 or using the following link: https://tickets.axs.com/shop/#/GEN-5916-4cbc-9ea7-5b25c95ac4e5?skin=theo2.
We have booked a coach for adults to travel down to the venue. The cost of this will be £24 per person. The school will be meeting the cost for the children in the choir to travel down. Please make sure you have paid the full amount at the office by Friday 26 th January. We still have spaces on the coaches, so if any other parent/carer would like to have a seat please let the office staff know. If more parents book onto the coach the cost will reduce per person and this will be amended and any refund due paid after the event. The adults coach will depart from school promptly at 3:00pm on the 31st January.
At the end of the event the parents/carers and children will return together on one coach. It is a long day and the children will need to take sufficient food and drink with them for lunch and dinner. We would suggest a hearty breakfast before school too! Although there are food outlets at the venue which will be open at the 5pm tea break, these are expensive and have long queues, so we would recommend a good quality and quantity packed lunch. If your child is entitled to Free School Meals please inform the School Office if you would like school to provide a packed lunch. However, please note this will only involve a standard packed lunch and not enough food for the entire day.
The children will need to wear a PLAIN WHITE T-SHIRT and DARK TROUSERS OR SKIRT on the day. If you have ordered the t-shirt pack from Young Voices, they should be arriving at school next week.
Children will travel to and from the event with staff, unless otherwise specifically arranged with me. You will not be permitted to take your child from the arena after the concert for security and safety reasons; if you wish your child to travel home with you, please arrange separately and in advance with me and we will hand over outside the venue.
Please keep encouraging your children to keep singing so that they know the songs off by heart. They are doing a wonderful job and we are nearly there with all of them. The songs are available on the school website, just click on learning and subject pages to find links to music and choir. www.whcps.org
