The CM Wood Centre was filled to capacity on Sunday morning as the Friends of Music ran their most successful “Munch with the Musos” yet! This is the 12th year that the committee has mounted this wonderful event which brings together our Junior School and Middle School performers (and a smattering of senior students), with a Christmas theme being the order of the day. Somewhere in the vicinity of 380 people, including students and their family members and staff, enjoyed the musical items performed by choirs, orchestras and bands.
As well as festive music, the event provided time for socialising, munching on tasty morsels, reflecting on the past year, and a familial atmosphere that wouldn’t be possible without the incredible organisational efforts of our Friends of Music committee. Thank you to the hard-working parents, who set up the hall on Friday afternoon (in the dull afternoon light, as we pondered the possibility of no power on Sunday!) and then arrived at 7.30am on Sunday to make sandwiches, cut fruit and get the sprinkles onto the fairy bread! Their efforts are greatly appreciated by the Music Department and the wider school community.
