Winter Concert – December 19

Once again, we would like to invite you to the W. Erskine Johnston Public School Winter Concert! Our class will be participating in the concert this year and we would be very proud to have you in our audience!

 The concert is on December 19th, and begins at 12 noon.
We would like to ask that you stay for the entire show. There are many wonderful acts and it’s important that the last group on stage has an audience as plentiful as the first group on stage!
