Dear Parent/Guardian,
Please find information below regarding travel, performance and uniform arrangements for Navan Choral Festival.
(1) Date of Travel:
The competition is being held on Friday, May 8th in Navan, Co. Meath
(2) Departure Times:
Competition Y1 (Formal Choir) – Bus departs from school at 7am
(3) Return Times:
We expect the bus will leave Navan around 12.00 midday, for a return to the school between 2pm and 3pm. This is dependent upon (i) the competition running to schedule (including awaiting announcements of winners etc), (ii) traffic conditions.
Time will be allocated to have some lunch. All students must be collected from the school – i.e., no drop offs along the route.
(4) Food.
Students should bring a packed lunch, as well as making sure that they bring a bottle of water (no fizzy drinks before performance please) and a healthy snack. There will be no stops enroute to or from the competition and food is not permitted on board the bus. Daniel in the School Canteen will provide a substantial lunch that includes a roll, bottle of water and snacks for €5 but this must be pre-ordered by Thursday lunch time and depends on how many students take this offer up.
(5) Behaviour
We are confident that our students will continue to represent our school with a high standard of courtesy and behaviour. Full school rules and sanctions apply on this trip.
