Music Evening Performers

The Music Evening is May 9th!

Every year, we have really great small ensembles, rock bands, and soloists performing in the music evening. These are music students who are highly enthusiastic and who would like to put together their own performance, outside of music clubs.

If you are interested in performing, please contact Miss Keus ( by May 28th. Of course, sooner is better).

Happy practicing!

Miss Keus

School Business (SB); if you are absent on behalf of NIS

Professional Leave (PFL): if you are absent on behalf of another organisation (eg Workshop leader, accreditation visit, presenting at a conference)

Professional Leave (PFL): if you are absent for personal professional reasons (eg Interviews, job fairs)

Professional Development (PD): Attending a course, workshop or conference (eg IB Workshop, ACAMIS workshops, EARCOS)

Personal Leave (PL): Must be approved by Arden (eg Embassy visits, meeting family at the airport)
