Rehearsals suspended All system bands and choirs - rehearsals suspended

Unfortunately we have taken the sad step and suspended rehearsals for our system wide ensembles. With students coming from up to 30 schools to sing and blow into instruments in close proximity - we felt it was important to protect the health and safety of students families and staff.

We will keep in touch through google classrooms or by email. 

Rehearsals Suspended

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.

 All groups - PCBM & PCBT, Percussion Ensemble, Jazz Band, SCC & PCC, JCB & SCB.

Concerts cancelled include -

JCB Camp - 21/3 & 22/3
