Congratulations to the band and choir who performed their final concert on Tuesday night.  The solos were beautiful and the group numbers a pleasure. The final mass number was a particular favourite!

A big congratulations to the dance performers at last night's recital. The smiles were contagious. The audience could see that you were having fun doing what you love.
