Pilsley C of E School

Newsletter 10.05.2024

Dear Parents and Carers,


Pilsley Proms!

On Monday 20th May, we are hosting our own Pilsley Proms with a musical coffee morning in the school hall starting at 9am. We will be serving hot drinks in the hall from 9am and Mrs Townsend will be leading the musical element of the morning. If your child has music lessons at school, they will have been asked already if they would like to play something at the Proms. There is no pressure for the children to play if they would rather not. Likewise, if your child plays an instrument outside of school and would like to join in with the Proms, please contact with your child's name, the name of their instrument and the title of the piece that they would like to play. We anticipate that the Proms will last for approximately one hour. Everyone welcome ๐Ÿ™‚
