Compass Rose info went home today (with a repeat in the Newsletter). One important time change: if you're coming in for the dress rehearsal on Friday, we're hoping to start at 10.30am, not 11am.
We're after a couple of video cameras to record Compass Rose. Does anyone have one we can borrow? Preference would be for memory card / hard drive cameras as disks seem to hard to come by! Please let Mr Tuck know at the school.
