The annual Music Evening is this upcoming Tuesday night (April 28th). We have a variety of acts involved, including 4 rock bands, Korean drummers, orchestras, small ensembles, and the DP Music class. We are currently seeking 1 or 2 students who are happy to MC the evening. These students would need to attend the tech rehearsal on Monday, from 3:15 – 5:15. If you are interested, please contact Miss Keus or Ms. Bonnie.
There will be a bake sale next week from 27th to 29th of April in the foyer to support the local animal shelter. Please check the brochure attached to this post. There will be posters and flyers around school as well.
Dear All, please refer to enclosed weekly updates on PM2.5 data.

2015 Athletics Day will take place on Wed 6th May. In order to create a bit more time on the day, a few changes have been made:

- You can now only do 4 events maximum – 2 track and 2 field
- There are restrictions on the range of field events you can do (only 1 throw, not both triple and long jump)
- No triple jump option for Grade 6 & 7

SPIRIT DAY IS COMING UP!
WHAT: SPIRIT DAY ‘ RAINBOW DAY’- BE VERY COLOURFUL!
WHEN: FRIDAY 24TH APRIL 2015
You’ve probably seen some extraordinary pieces of art in the center foyer by now – ever wonder what they are for? That’s right! In only 2 days we will be hosting the annual Student Council Art Auction. Buy your tickets now! We are selling tickets in the mornings as well as after school in the center lobby, all this week. All proceeds go to the Amy Yang Fund.
The year is quickly coming to a close, which means it’s time to start thinking about this year’s interhouse music competition! Each year it gets better and better, with even more creative and interesting artistic interpretations. The first year was rock, with “Livin’ on a Prayer.” The second year was counter, with “Ring of Fire.” This year… drum roll please… we are going with Latin jazz! And the song? “Sway.”
Sway is a Spanish song first recorded as “Quien Sera.” Since then it’s been covered by a variety of different artists, including Dean Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Buble and the Pussy Cat Dolls.
1. See your house captain to express interest in performing. You don’t need to find a group because your house captain will put you in touch with other musicians.
2. Go to studentlargestorage / music / interhouse / MYPDP and download the video files, leadsheet and sheet music.
3. Get together with your group and start practicing.
4. The competition will take place the week of May 12th, with more details to follow.
Miss Bonnie and Miss Keus will help every group equally because they are not the judges for the event. If you have any questions or comments, please come see Miss Keus or your house captain.
Good luck everyone! Make us all sway!
The Eco Sale will run on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes this week in the foyer. You can still buy bamboo straws, hand-made paper, bookmarks and pencils, gift cards and bags-for life.
