February 25th 2020: School Music Department Tour to Paris

Our School Show Choir is due to be touring in Paris next week, with the trip leaving Pembrokeshire on Thursday 5th March. Presently, Public Health Wales are NOT advising against travel to France and there are no areas of France on 'lock down' .

We recognise that our pupils have worked hard to prepare and practice for this tour and public performances and know what a wonderful opportunity our pupils have. We know that our pupils are very much looking forward to it. We also recognise the need for precautions and for due care, attention and consideration to be given to the decisions that we make with regard to Coronavirus.

We will continue to take daily advice from the relevant authorities, including Pembrokeshire County Council and Public Health Wales but would advise that at present, the trip will go ahead as planned.

Further, regular updates will follow and will be posted on our website for all parents, including parents of those taking part in the Paris trip.

Parents and carers can ring 111 for additional advice and support. Information on Coronavirus, from a reliable source, can be found at:
