Note from the Convener, Sheran Hancock:
Just a quick note to remind you all of the upcoming Education Days for our centre. The first day is to be held at the Palmerston North Boys High School in Palmerston North on the 12th June. The Second is to be held in Masterton on the 24 July and the third at in Wellington on the 18 September.
All morning sessions of the education days will be option sessions so if you have a particular topic you would like to know more about please let me know so I can arrange it for you.
For those of you who wish to be involved with the Wellington Hawkes Bay Youth Band, we will dedicate the afternoon sessions to this activity. If you are not involved in the Youth Band we will continue to provide option sessions for you. Please let me know if you would like to attend any or all of these education days so that I can provide enough tutors to meet your needs.
The Wellington Hawkes Bay Youth Band initiative is a first for our centre and we would like to see it get off the ground this year. Piping Tutors have been sourced and are for Piping: Marion Horsburgh and Davey Welsh. Drumming: Adam Alexander and Glen Miller. If you want to be a member of the Wellington Hawkes Bay Youth Band and are aged 20 or under, please send me back your expression of interest and I will forward some music and more information.
