Newsletter: Term Two

We hope everyone is settling well into the year. Can you believe it's nearly time for holidays again?



TERM DATES First term will continue up to the 11th of April. We will then break for the holidays and resume for term two on Monday 28th of April (NB. some schools resume later in this week). Classes will NOT be held on Queens Birthday Monday 9th June (June long weekend). Term two ends 27th June 2014.



CONCERT DATES: Our Annual Concert will be held at the gorgeous Civic Theatre, Newcastle again this year on Sunday Afternoon the 30th November 2014. Theatre rehearsal will be held on Friday afternoon/evening the 21st November 2014.



BRITISH BALLET ORGANISATION EXAMINATIONS: Primary to Grade Three level exams for eligible students will be held on the 27th of June '14. Grade Four and above levels will have exams on the 22nd & 23rd August this year. Entries for students are now available for 'BBO dance days' in Sydney during the July school holidays, this is an annual seminar that I attend each year.



STUDENTS BEING DROPPED OFF prior to their class commencement times without parental supervision is not acceptable. Staff and students participating in scheduled lessons are often unfairly distracted by their conduct (or that of unsupervised siblings), and vandalism or accidents may occur. We realise it is often difficult to 'juggle' commitments and ask that parents inform staff if it is a possibility they will arrive late, so we can be aware students need to remain within the studio for further supervision. Students are NOT to 'wait outside' for collection, this is most unsafe. Please discuss the importance of these issues with your child. ALL FAMILIES must have a proxy key to minimise disruption.



HEIDI'S SCHOOL OF DANCE WEAR is available for purchase through staff. These t-shirts, long sleeve shirts and fleece jackets are great to throw over leotards for arrival (with some pants of course)... Please ensure your child always covers their dance uniform on arrival and departure.
