You need to be dressed in the following gear:

Cadets: ANZAC Day Drum Corp Practice

Dear Cadets and Parents

  1. The ANZAC Committee for Toowoomba have requested that the Cadets combine their drum corps for the ANZAC main service in the city.
  2. We have arranged for two practice dates so far:
  3. Tuesday 19 March from 4-5 pm
  4. Tuesday 26 March from 4-5 pm
  5. I will organise transport for everyone from TGS to 25/49RQR, O’Quinn Street.
  6. The transport will leave at 3.30 pm from the TGS bus stop on Margaret Street.
  7. This will mean that any females from Fairholme College must be here before 3.30 pm and I will pick up any Glennie Cadets on the way at the Aquatic Centre at The Glennie School.
  8. We should be back at school around 5.15pm at  the TGS Margaret Street bus stop.
  9. Could you please let me know if you cannot attend and I will assume all others will be attending.
  10. Thursday Drum Corp training will continue at TGS for the next two weeks before the end of term.

Thank you

Ma’am Hallam
