Norwood Pageant – Sat 26th Nov

Dear Junior Choir families

The Christmas Pageant will soon be upon us and the planning is in full swing. Full details will be published soon with drop off and collection arrangements. The times will be 9.45am-approx 11.30am, end of the Pageant.

In the mean time:

  • Please check costumes: Laundered and ironed Choir T-Shirt (yellow for Juniors, orange for Inters and green for 2CC), black pants, black shoes and black socks, YAV Cap (pick up at the office for $10 if you don’t have one – please put your name in it) – no skirts, leggings or tracksuit pants please.
  • We will need around 8 helpers to walk the route with the choristers. Please can you let Anthea or I know if you are able to assist. Helpers will walk at the ends of the rows and hand out YAV flyers plus aid the tutors at the drop off and collection point. It’s lots of fun – be prepared for plenty of smiling and waving! Helpers should wear black tops please and we will provide tinsel for a bit of Christmas cheer.

If you have any questions please let us know. Full bulletin with map of pageant route/YAV drop and pick up points will be published by the end of next week.

If you are heading into the city for the Credit Union Pageant this Saturday give our First Concert Choir girls a really big cheer – they are singing in position 55 between the pageant horses Nipper and Nimble.
