This event is Confirmed

Notes for the band:

It is unusual for us to have next year's Exchange dates confirmed in advance of Christmas like this, but it is intentional. August is the traditional holiday period for many families, so I am informing parents of our plans as soon as possible in the hope of avoiding date clashes. I am delighted that students have already put their names forward for selection, as have several of our voluntary staff members/Registered Chaperones. If there are other members who wish to be considered, pleased contact myself or Brenda Procter asap. No selection has yet been made, so the door is still open! Thank you. John Ellis. (Dates confirmed with Thomas Vennes, EKS 2.10.14)
