The Marines have just contacted me to say they have some places available for a 3-day work experience placement with the Scotland Band in Rosyth during half term – 12th-14th Feb. This is a new type of visit they are running as, up to now, these have always been 4-day visits to Portsmouth, and is likely to include a lot more playing.
Attached is the form that gives more info – students MUST be 15 years old or above and be playing at the equivalent of at least grade 5 standard.
Should anyone wish to go, please fill in the forms and then get them to me as soon as possible – I will send them off together as we always get preferential treatment, and seats on the train will be together: all tickets are sorted out by the Navy.
Alternatively, we will be offering the May half-term work experience in Portsmouth (28th-31st May) to the Year 10 GCSE Music class and any Year 12 students of the required standard.
PS – we are currently negotiating dates for the next visit to Ulverston by the Scotland Band.
