Following membership feedback, we are going to tour to New Zealand in
July 2013. The major advantages over the China options are:
Cost – Many more students can afford the NZ option
Inclusiveness – All members of all ensembles are able to participate
Timing – July school holidays means year 12 students may attend
Better option musically – China was very sightseeing oriented, while
Rhaposdy Rotorua is a long-established music festival.
What now? – in order to meet Dept of Education planning
requirements, MEP must confirm numbers this month, so all members who
want to go to NZ next July need to pay a $200 deposit by October 22nd.

The deposit is not refundable except in the unlikely event that the
tour is cancelled.
The balance, which is expected to be no more than $2500.00 will be
payable in two stages in February and May 2013.
Incoming year 7 students are welcome, so if your child has a sibling
coming to Rose Bay in 2013 who may want to attend, please let us know.
Places are limited to 40 students, Details and Itinerary are available for download
