System band and choirs - rehearsals suspended until further notice

Unfortunately we have made the difficult decision to suspend rehearsals for our extension ensembles until further notice due to COVID-19 issues. With students singing, blowing etc in close proximity and from up to 30 different schools we decided it was best to suspend rehearsals for now. This was not done lightly but with health and safety of students, staff and families in mind.
