Music Competition – Thursday 7/9
Applications forms are now available for students to enter this year’s Music Competition to be held in Week 6 of this term on Thursday 7th September. The forms are with the music teachers and students will discuss their pieces and submit entries through their music teachers. Spare application forms are held by form teachers, Mrs Brickland and the office.

All students who are learning a musical instrument are invited to enter, and entries from students whose instrument teachers do not come to Ficino School to give their lessons are especially welcome. Those students should collect their forms from their teacher or Mrs Ashton.

All application forms need to be handed in to Mrs Brickland or the Office by Monday 28th August.

Photolife School Photos – Friday 8/9
The prepaid class and portrait photo envelopes have gone home with the children this week. Could these please be completed and returned with the money to class teachers or the school office by Monday 4th September. Sibling portraits will be taken following completion of individual portrait photos. Pre-paid sibling envelopes must be completed before photo day. These envelopes are available from the school office.

Sports teams photos are scheduled first, at approximately 9am, so please could all parents make sure that all children in hockey, netball and ski teams wear their sports uniform to school and bring their full school uniform to change into after the sports photos. Please could coaches and managers be available (if possible) for the photos. Music ensemble children should also bring their instruments. Children will need to wear their blazers please.
