Junior Choir Rehearsal Week 3

Next Tuesday is a Mass for Years 3-6 in our parish church. Therefore Junior Choir will take place on Monday 28 October at 8.15 am instead of Tuesday, just for next week only.

Stockland Riverton Performance

The Junior Choir will be performing some Christmas Carols at Stockland Riverton on Saturday 7 December. A note has gone home about this so please return the slip if you are available for this performance. There will be limited space so it is fine if you are not available.

Corpus Concert Band Visit

On Monday 28 October the Corpus Christi Band will be visiting Orana to participate in a workshop with the Orana band and then perform a short concert for the school.

Band members will need to remember their instruments on this day. Our beginning band members who have recently joined the band in the last few weeks do not need to bring their instruments.

Parents are welcome to attend the performance, which will be 12.15 in the School Hall.

To all of you who assisted by making cakes and/or slices, distributing lunches or looking after the cake stall a very big thank you. Your help was very much appreciated.
