Dear Parents/ Caregivers,


The Elm Park School choir will be participating in the rehearsal and the Kids for Kids concert, on Tuesday 15 November at the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau.  

Tuesday 15 November -  9.00 am – 1.00 pm

There will be a rehearsal at the events centre.  Students will need to be on the bus by 8:40 am.  Please ensure that your child is in school by 8:30am. They will need to bring morning tea with them.  We will be back in school by lunch time.


Tuesday 15 November -  Evening

Students will need to arrive at the venue at 6:45pm.  Entry to the theatre is at the stage door mid way along the side of the theatre facing the car park. The concert starts at 7:30pm and finishes at 9:30pm.  Students will need to be picked up from the foyer after the concert. There will be a short interval midway through the concert.  The children will need to wear light, bright coloured clothing as it will get very hot on stage.


Parents are welcome to take photographs, but due to copyright restrictions it is not possible to use a video camera.

Thank you for all your support and co-operation with the choir this year.  We have had a great year.
