CONCERT BANDS PERFORMING AT ANZAC DAY SERVICES

GCC Concert and Primary Band has been asked to perform at the annual Beerwah ANZAC Day service to be held in Turner Street Park (behind the Beerwah Library). Band students will not be participating in the march. It is a privilege to be asked to play at this service. An email was sent home the end of last term regarding details. A reminder email was sent home this week as well outlining the details.

Please endeavour for your child to attend the service. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me at ebony.hilton@glasshouse.qld.edu.au. Please ensure the school has your child’s up to date medical records and best family contact details.

If you haven’t already, can you please complete the Google Form informing the music department of your child’s intention to participate in the Anzac Day Service in Turner Park, Beerwah.

The College bands will also play at the school’s Anzac Day whole College service on Tuesday 24 April. There will be no Primary band practice that morning although we will be setting up from 7:30am so extra helping hands would be great.
