The 3rd and 4th were always my preferred dates Anne, but I can't get that venue then. In saying that we are not tied to the venue and there are plenty of other options. The number of prize givings on at over the 6th and 7th is a problem so I am definitely considering looking at earlier in that week.
Can teachers email me directly if there is a school event on that would prevent their attendance on 3rd and 4th? The second day would be optional for eDeans. Don't email if you can make it, I just want to hear from those who can't.
As I said we will never please everyone, but I would like to avoid hitting major school events like prize giving.
