Important Choir Info
Concert in The Helix 7:30pm, Sat 9th Feb. Tickets 25 available on 01 7007000 or www.thehelix.ie. Choir will finish at 3:30pm on Friday to allow extra well needed rehearsal time for our final practice before the concert on Saturday. 
To answer some questions:

  • The children are not allowed any electronic items on Saturday, this includes mobile phones.
  • The girls may wear school trousers if they wish or grey long socks instead of grey tights are also another option.
  • All children must bring a good lunch for backstage. I would suggest eating dinner at midday before getting on the bus leaving school at 4:20pm sharp.
  • They are not allowed sweet or messy items in their packed lunch.

Thank you for your continued co-operation. Ger Meade.
