We commence our preparation for the Finale rehearsals next week.
This year, all placegetters will be invited to attend a meeting at lunchtime on Tuesday 13 June where the successful items for the Town Hall will be announced to the students. Tickets will be made available via trybooking. Year 12 will be given first preference for ticket sales from Monday 5 June. Year 11 will have second preference for tickets from Wednesday 7 June. Year 10 will have third preference with their booking opening on Friday 9 June. Years 10-12 will have their unique login code emailed to them. Years 9, 8 and 7 (and any other students who have not previously bought tickets) will be able to book their tickets online from Monday the 12th of June until the day of the concert without needing a password.
It is certainly an exciting and creative term.
Happy practising, everybody!
