Production update 16.11.21

15th November 2021


Dear Parents.


re: postponement of Mary Poppins


Following a rise in the number of cases, I have taken the very difficult decision to postpone both the rehearsals for, and performances of our whole school production, Mary Poppins. The children have worked so hard to this point and I do not want to waste their efforts. Therefore, the performance will be rescheduled for the end of February. Rehearsals will begin again in January.


Outlined below are a number of factors I have considered in making the decision.

  • A whole school production means that at points there will be in excess of 550 people in the hall and even with good ventilation, due to the nature of the event (singing, cheering etc), the risk of passing on Covid-19 particles would be very high.
  • The production was due to be performed in the penultimate week of term, meaning that if there were to be any related cases, families would be in the position of having to isolate over the Christmas period.
  • We do not want the children to be over rehearsed and to peak too early.

I hope you understand the reasons for this decision and I thank you for your continued support.


Yours sincerely,

Kelvin Geary
