**EDITED (5/9) : Annoucements on 3/9 (if you've missed it) + some additional stuffs
1) First thing first..
Girls who have not taken their measurements, please meet us coming sat, 8th sept, AMK bus interchange (AMKhub), near bus 166 queue, 10.30am. Please be punctual. The girls who will be going at this time are: Shi Pei, Karen, Emily(TBC), Li Dan, Ping Ding

If you can't make it on either slots, we'll arrange another slot for you again. But as we've said before, we need to speed things up so that the tailor can finish up our gown on time by oct.
Also, please pay xiu hui your gown money!
2) Secondly, combined practices shall be twice a week starting next week
- mon & thurs, 7pm - *10pm
I've heard from some of you and understand that you've work. I know it's tiring, but I hope all of you bear in mind that we've told you beforehand that practices will be twice a week. So, I hope to stress here that please make the effort to turn up for as much practice you can when you can make it. Please bear in mind that by making this efforts to turn up (whether a not you'll be late due to work or lessons - doesn't matter), it affects our progress and big big reminder that concerts is only TWO months away. (We only have 2-3 pracs per week and think about memorising songs, choreography, song shaping - it's a lot of work to do) So try to spare a thought for your poor comm members alright? =) We don't want to have a head of white hair during concert!
If nurses having morning shift from 8 til 4 can make it, I don't see why you can't. If you've early work the next day, tell us before hand and we'll allow you to leave early. I know some of you stayed really far from school.. I really appreciate you guys for turning up for practice. I know practices are so late at night, but I seek your kind understanding for that and bear with it k? We'll organise a big feast after concert k! But, if you are facing problems at any point in time, please do not hestitate to look up any of the comm members. We'll definitely try our best to help you.
Also, please please don't give us 'heart attacks' by replying our msg only last minute. We do not entertain last minute replies. If you know you'll be late or not coming, inform us early. If you're having sore throat, muscle ache or whatever - still make the effort to come.. you can learn songs with your ears right?
I hope you guys understand that we've change fri night's prac to thursday so that more pple can attend. Attendance requirements shall still be 80% at least ( we don't care whether you late a not - only applicable if you've attachment or work or lesson) and SLs shall constantly monitor your progress and performance during prac silently. If you can't attend prac due to oversea trip or outside camp - that is still 'forgivable', but still, we shall look at your performance to decide you should perform a not.
3) Concert Camp: 1st -3rd Oct
Compulsory camp. If you have something on, make arrangements please or you'll be missing out a lot of stuff. An overnight camp. More details when oct looms. Inform us early if you have problems attending the full camp.
4) Sectionals (Very impt)
For the first three-four weeks of sept, I'll have sectionals that'll be held in either mon/wed/thurs noon due to SHS students who are having attachment. The purpose on this is to brush up your parts quickly so that mr ong can quickly start on shaping and we can do choreography. Sectionals are drawn out based on the nurse's attachment schedule - so nurses, please try to attend. Slots will vary for different sections but I've tried to make most of the slots fall in the same day as practice.
