Block 2 After school activities

Please find below the activity choices for Block 2.

Block 1 will finish on Wednesday 4th October and Block 2 will start on Monday 30th October.

If your child is in the main cast for Primary Production they will continue to rehearse on their given day. They should choose a new activity though and will join the new activity once the Production is over.

We have tried to provide both breadth and balance to ensure that there is something for everyone.

Activities are not compulsory for Primary School students, but they provide a good opportunity for children to develop their skills in a particular area of interest, as well as a chance to try something new.

We are trying to develop an ethos of thoughtful selection and perseverance. Once activities have been assigned children will not be able to change to a different activity. So please spend some time with your child to help them make their choices.

The link for sign-ups will be sent later in the week.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
