August 2016 Newsletter

Bonjour Community Member

Thank you to all those who have contacted us with words of support and condolences following the horrific attack in Nice whilst people were celebrating le quartorze juillet. Your thoughts and words have been greatly appreciated. A condolence book is available for signing in our reception area.

Our students returned to class earlier this week with renewed enthusiasm and in greater numbers. Thank you to all that booked and paid online as well as those that registered and paid before the start of term. This has enabled us to be able to confirm many more classes than usual and no last minute cancellations. We hope that you have also found that these changes have made the re-enrolment process much simpler and the return to class much smoother.

Félicitations this month to our Alliance members, Annie Wittup and Dale Elliott, who have each won a double pass to Cabaret de Paris.
