Dear Parents/Carers,

As part of our Christmas celebrations and links with the local community, school have arranged for choir to visit local retirement and care homes to sing Christmas carols over the coming weeks.  As we can only take 20 children on each trip, we are trying to give all children in both infant and junior choirs a chance to go out and sing by allocating one of these dates for each child, meaning they will attend one care home.

Children will be back in school for normal collection time of 3:15pm when attending a care home. All choir are very welcome to attend our Mince pie and bauble/Christmas Fair but will need collecting from school at 4:30pm.

Children will be leaving school to sing on the following dates:

Tuesday 26th November – B & Q
Monday 2nd December – Vienna Court Nursing Home
Thursday 5th December – Brooklands Nursing Home
Monday 9th December – Greenacres Nursing Home

11th December – 2:30pm Mince pies and baubles at school Children need picking up at 4:30pm (No children to walk home on unaccompanied)

Thursday 12th December – Acresfield Nursing Home

Please provide permission for your children to attend these dates by signing and returning the slip on the attached letter (link below). These outings have been extremely successful over the past few years and enjoyed by all.

Thank you for your ongoing support with the music and singing at St Oswald’s,

Mr Crowther
Music Co-ordinator
