To all Participants in the Boys' Summer School 2009
I hope you and your families had a wonderful Christmas and are all set to welcome the New Year with an exciting and fulfilling few days at the Summer School in January.
I have spoken to some of you on the phone, and I am writing to give you some final information, and to give you a contact, so that if you have any last-
We are looking forward to seeing you all, and if our previous Summer Schools in 2007 and 2008 are any indication, you are all set to have a fantastic time, working with top dance teachers, and making new friends along the way.
For residents, the starting time is 8.45am Monday January 5, except that, as most are aware, the boarding house will be open from 4pm on Sunday January 4, and you will be most welcome to arrive at or after this time and stay the night without additional cost, to ensure a prompt start the next day. (Dinner not provided but we will probably order a pizza delivery).

What to Bring
You will need to bring: 6 days change of clothes and dance gear, towel and swimmers, toiletries and anything else to make you comfortable for the duration. We will provide all linen including pillows. As there is a possibility of attending a Sydney festival performance, please also include some presentable casual wear (including collared shirt).
As far as spending money is concerned, we are planning an outing to Luna Park (a 10 minute walk from the School), and this will involve about $40 for rides, plus enough for take-
Apart from the take aways during the outings, all meals will be supplied. Breakfast will be cereal such as muesli/weet bix, plus orange juice, yoghurt and toast.

One of the attractions of being a resident at the Summer School is the opportunity to meet new friends and to share in social activities away from the studio -
Final Concert and Sausage Sizzle
The Summer School will end with an informal concert in the Smith Auditorium, followed by a sausage sizzle by the pool. We will advise you of the exact time through your sons and on the website (http://boyssummerschool.net )during the week, but the concert will likely commence at around midday. If you are bringing children they may bring their swimmers, but please be responsible for their supervision! (No one under 10 please). The best option for parking is the Bishopsgate car park in Union Street, on the South Western corner of the School campus. Walk diagonally through the School to the opposite North Eastern corner and that is where the Smith Auditorium is located.
If you have any questions at all, please email me or give me a call. My mobile phone number is: 0410 490 710. We look forward to seeing you all in January.
