Last week we got the very exciting news that the Len Reynolds Trust will be donating funds to Sistema Waikato so that we can buy new instruments! This means from Term Two we can introduce some new children to the cello! A massive thank you to Len Reynolds Trust for your amazing contribution to our programme! For more information on the trust, head to www.lenreynoldstrust.co.nz
We are so proud of the Sistema Waikato flute boys who were awarded their flute licences and their very own flutes to take home! Noah, Lexus and Max have been working really hard with Whaea Elsie over the last few terms and we are amazed by their achievements. Congratulations guys!
After feedback from parents and assessing the previous Sistema Waikato Holiday programmes, we have decided to change the way we do them. There will now be two holiday programmes each year: a summer one and winter one. The winter one (9th - 13th July 2018) will act as an introduction for our new intake, and offer recaps and development for our older children. The summer one (TBC January 2019) will be a great refresher after the time off over the summer holidays. We will keep you updated on the times and formats of the holiday programmes.
We are holding a parent info evening on Thursday the 8th of February at 5:30pm in the Nawton School Hall. This is your chance to find out more about how the programme works, upcoming events and ask any questions about Sistema. If possible, please let us know in advance if you will be attending. See you there!
We are so excited to have First Credit Union on board as a sponsor of Sistema Waikato! Thank you so much First Credit Union for this wonderful end of year gift! We look forward to working with you next year.
A huge thanks to the Blackcaps who donated a signed shirt to Sistema Waikato! It was great to have Henry Nicholls and Mitchell Santner at our End of Year Extravaganza last week. We hope you enjoyed it!
We are looking after all instruments over the summer holidays so if you still have them at home could you please drop them at your school office before the end of the term. We will be doing repairs and upgrading instruments, so be sure to get them in!
