Musicnet Summary to 16 Dec 2018

By MartinEmo



Kia ora tātou


This is the last week of work for many of you on the list. Be it Primary and Intermediate teacher's finishing in a few days, Secondary teachers doing the last bit of rooming/timetabling juggling for 2019, Itinerants trying to lock down hours and schools for next year or anyone else doing that last bit of planning before Christmas.


I do hope you all take a break to recharge, see some live music, play some live music and enjoy time with friends and family.


Just a reminder that at the end of this week, Friday the 21st Dec, the Musicnet list will be taken off-line until the 28th of Jan. The archives will also be taken down as the server is upgraded. This means that you won’t be able to post any messages.
