Dear Parent and Orchestra Member,
A big thank you to all who baked and helped out at or came along to surport our Cake sale. I hope you enjoyed the delicious cakes.
We raised 555 euros.
Many thanks indeed for helping us with all of our fundraising.
We have had a very successful fundraising with the clothes for YOPS.
I would like to thank all the parents and the orchestra members who donated to the clothes collection so generously and the parents who helped that morning with the collection and storage of the bags.
We received 928kg of goods and this raised 554 euros for YOPS with another 54 euros going to the LauraLynn Hospice.
A special thank you to Lorraine Harbison for facilitating the storage and the collection of the clothes in the CICE building

Parent Support/Roster for Parents
I would like to thank the parents for their support last year in preparing the refreshments and supervising the students during our breaks. Due to the Orchestras growth in numbers we would greatly appreciate all your support with our fundraising events and monthly supervision requirements.
This year the breaks for both orchestras will be 11.15 to 11.45am and I would like to ask every parent to volunteer to supervise at least one break in the year. We will need 6 parents for each rehearsal day from 10.50-12.00am
In order to organise this roster, we will be emailing you in the next week, details of how you will be able to advise us on line your availability for roster duty before the 8th September. We will then prepare the Break Supervision Roster, put it on our website, and a copy will be on display on the notice board at each rehearsal.
During the year if you become unable to fulfil your roster commitment, we would appreciate if you could arrange a swoop with another parent between yourselves and let us know.
This year’s membership fee is retained 115 euros per student and 95 euros for second family members. This is necessary to cover the insurance, heating and rent of the hall. Fees must be paid by Sunday 8th September 2012.
Please also ensure the Conditions of Membership form is also returned with your fees.
I would ask you to confirm receipt of this email to verify your email address by an email reply to email@example.com. If you are not planning to return to YOPS, I would be grateful if you could let me know and to please arrange the return of the YOPS music and folder
We are looking forward to another successful and enjoyable year
