Important reminders for this week:

They need to be in costume and ready to go. We ask audience members to bring a gold coin donation. The PTA will have ice-creams for sale at the show: Fru Jus for $2.50 and Kapiti vanilla bean ice cream tubs for $1. The show will finish by 8pm. No child can leave the hall without a parent or caregiver.
The children will not be at Champion Street tomorrow, Tuesday, as they are coming directly to Beckenham after technology for a final rehearsal.
