Farewell party for Ambulance Hall!

Hello everyone,

I am sorry to have to let you know that due to circumstances beyond my control, we will not be able to hold the farewell party to the Ambulance Hall as planned!

The best thing I can do is promise the children a party to celebrate us moving in to the new build as and when it is completed. It promises to be very exciting, mirrors, barres and suitable dance flooring! Couldn’t ask for more really!

Once again my apologies re the recent party plans but I’m sure the new build one will be even more special!

Thankyou

Anita Murray

Wizard DVD’s

Hi,

Some of the recently distributed DVD’s are apparently faulty. I have been in touch with Wizard who apologised and explained that they appear to been sent a faulty batch of blanks by their suppliers.

A considerable number of people have not yet collected their copies – they are available at all 3 studio venues. (You will need to sign on collection).

Please watch and check that both Act 1 and Act 2 are ok, if not, return them labelled with your name and ‘faulty’. They will then be returned and replaced.

Thank you for your patience.

Amended provisional time table Chorley School as from Sept 3rd 2016

Hi,

The forthcoming September time table has proved very difficult to organise. Please see below the amended version — being sent out 26.08.16 — please ignore anything that was published before this date.

It is clear from the amount of queries coming through that some people are unsure of the grade that they are in. This is completely understandable as we went straight from exams into show work. In order to clarify things I have included the show number that pupils were in alongside the provisional times.

Please note that this is provisional only, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me either via the website or mobile.
