The Stockbridge Primary Band – Tuesday’s 8.10 – 8.55am

Calling all Primary 4-7 Young Musicians…

We are announcing a new and exciting opportunity to play in a group, learn how to make music and create sounds in a variety of styles – from Film to Pop! All instruments welcome, from brass to strings as well as keyboards and percussion.  If you love music, are enthusiastic, like to be creative and have lots of energy then please get in touch.

This new Stockbridge band will practice before school for 45 minutes. We will learn to play and perform music in all styles. There will be lots of possibilities to compose, arrange and improvise. The band will aim to become the flagship of the school, and perform regularly at school events and in the wider community. We will also look to record our music!

Band practice will take place on a Tuesday 8.10 – 8.55am (Dates this term will be January – 16,23,30 Feb – 6,20,27 March – 6,13,20,27)

If you would like to join please sign up by emailing admin@stockbridge.edin.sch.uk / speaking to the school office and come along TO THE SCHOOL HALL NEXT TUESDAY AT 8.10AM WITH YOUR INSTRUMENT.   

There will be no cost for the first session but we will charge £2.00 per week for all other sessions (a parentpay payment will be set up after the first session to cover staffing costs).  We do not want cost to prohibit attendance so please contact the school office if you have difficulty covering these costs.

Best wishes,

Mr Briggs and Ms Calder-Kelly

End of Term Notices

Only 3 days to go…

Parent Pay

There are currently 71 outstanding payments for the Christmas Show. As you are aware we are not able to provide enrichment opportunities such as these for your children if we do not recoup  the costs.  Please make this payment on Parent Pay before the end of term. Many thanks to those of you who provided an extra donation for those who may find it difficult to contribute.

Lunches

Please order your lunches for the first week of the new term by midnight tomorrow.

Christmas Carol Concert – THURSDAY

Our end of term Christmas Carol Concert will begin at 1.45pm at Stockbridge Parish Church.  Following the Concert, please allow the children to return to school with their class where they will be dismissed at their usual time.  Please can all children come to school in full school uniform but bring something Christmassy to wear to the church such as a Santa hat or a piece of tinsel.  All parents are warmly invited to attend.

Final Day

School will finish at 12, midday on Friday 22nd December. School staff also finish at this time and as such it is very important that children are collected promptly.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all parents a wonderful Christmas and New Year.  I look forward to seeing the children return refreshed from the Christmas break on TUESDAY the 9th JANUARY.

 

Best wishes,

Faye Calder-Kelly
