Christmas Concert – taking part

Christmas Concert Thursday 14th December 7pm School Hall – Invitation

On Thursday December 14th we will be holding our Christmas Concert – Sing Up for Christmas. I would like to invite your son/daughter to take part in this event – Christmas songs will be learnt in music lessons and will then feature in the concert. These will be well known Christmas songs and we hope to make a really big sound as we celebrate the season. As a bonus we will also be recording the event for a podcast broadcast by our school radio station Hanson Radio UK.

The concert takes place in the school hall at 7pm and we hope you will come along and join in with this fun Christmas event. We would love to have as many year students as possible taking part, and a huge audience so that we can really raise the roof and have a fun evening.

The tickets for the event will be free and will be available to be booked via ParentMail. So that we know how many children will be taking part please will you complete the slip below at the bottom of this letter, or complete the online permission slip on ParentMail.

I look forward to receiving your response. Please look out for the online booking for seats and we hope we see as many of you as possible on 14th December.

Head of Music and Drama

Year 5 visits

It was fabulous to see so many year 5 pupils at our open evening last week! Next summer you will have the opportunity to spend a day with us, finding out about life at John Hanson School. Your primary schools will share the information closer to the time. We hope to see you then!
