Careers presentation from the Royal Marines

Please could all members of the Wind Band in yr9 upwards try to be present? This is both out of courtesy to the Marines (they are contributing a lot of money to this weekend and the Royal Navy only allow that to happen if it can be labelled as a recruitment exercise) and also to give a realistic view of life in the armed services as a professional musician.

Also – students in yr10-13 will have the opportunity to go on work experience during either May or October half-term 2020, or Feb half-term 2021.
