Letter to Parents

Dear Parents

It’s hard to believe that we’ve now been running our online classes for 3 months. It’s been wonderful to see how the students have adapted to this new way of learning drama and dance.  They have been amazing and we would like to thank you all for your support in helping us to make this happen. We currently have 14 online classes being held across Belfast and Antrim with over 120 students registered from P3 – Yr 14. If you know anyone who might like to join please let us know.

Term Dates

Unfortunately, we are still not able to re-start face to face classes so we will take a two-week break over Easter from this Saturday 27 March and will resume online classes again week commencing Monday 12th April and run online classes until Saturday 5th June.

Trinity College Examinations

We have been so encouraged by how many senior students are keen to be entered for Trinity Solo examinations this year despite not having face to face classes. A separate email will be sent out to all those senior students who are taking exams in due course. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer this opportunity to our junior students but will hopefully be able to do so next year.

Social Media

Please check out our website www.youthlyric.co.uk which is updated regularly with our latest news, merchandise offers, new staff members information and most recently, photos from our Titanic Production which you can download and print. If you would like to make a small donation for any photos printed you can do so online in the usual way referencing Photos. Thank you! Our social media sites have been a great way to stay connected with students and parents during the pandemic and we regularly upload class screenshot photos and student reviews, plus useful information such as casting opportunities and recent radio interviews as well as a very special video message which will be coming soon to our students so keep looking! Please also check out our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram sites listed below and feel free to like, share and comment on any of our posts.

Hoodies Order

We have started a new hoodie and merchandise order that will be placed over Easter – does your child’s hoodie/T Shirt still fit them? We currently have an offer on our lanyards BOGOF so if you would like to order any items please use the attached form and return it to us as soon as possible. Thanks!

You will be contacted soon with regard to any outstanding term fees as well as new zoom invitations for classes next term.  You may have noticed that an automated email is now sent to your email address 1 hour before classes begin to help remind you of your child’s class, which we hope is helpful – if you wish this email to be sent to a different email address please let us know.

We would like to wish you all a very Happy Easter and we look forward to seeing all the students back online after the holidays.

Kind Regards
