Shrewsbury School Symphony Orchestra and Big Band tour to Prague, July 2013
If parents of pupils involved in this trip have not written to confirm their son's or daughter's participation or otherwise, could they please do so as a matter of urgency. It promises to be a wonderful trip to one of Europe's most beautiful cities in the Czech Republic, and plans are underway for us to be joined by students from Shrewsbury International, Bangkok for the tour as well. Replies should be sent to Karen Wilding at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Third Form parents: Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's Award
Further to my September letter to you about the DofE, we have now launched DofE Bronze to your sons, and it would be really helpful if you could have a conversation with them about it over exeat. If they have decided to do DofE Bronze, then please ask what they plan to do for the various sections involved: Skill (a non sporting hobby), Sport and Volunteering (helping others). The Expedition is done as part of Outdoor Week in the summer term. I have attached my previous letter that explains all about Bronze.
