Dear parents and new choristers,

Please also let your child read this newsletter

A hearty welcome to the ECCC, we trust that you will all be happy members of the ECCC soon!

I have attached the welcome package for first years, with all relevant information, to this letter.  Please take some time away from interruptions to pay careful attention to its content as there is quite a bit of information to digest.

Please click on the link at the bottom of this e-mail to access the letter.

A few suggestions to make your life in the ECCC a bit easier:

  • Always communicate with Monica (or your new chair person or secretary next year) if you are not sure of something.  Communication is very important to prevent misunderstandings.
  • Open a seperate file on your computer for ECCC correspondence - it makes accessing it so much easier.
  • Always read your e-mails, it contains a wealth of information and will keep you up to date with our calendar.
  • We have an ECCC website, please have a look at it, you will get a good idea of what happens at the choir and on tours.
  • We have a FB page, please go there and like it:
  • Formal choir SMS's will generally be sent out at 20h00 in the evening, unless urgent and will start with ECCC:
  • Please add our phone numbers to the contact list on your mobile phone and send the relevant person a whatsapp or SMS rather than phoning.
  • Next term we will send out a waiting duty roster for parents to assist in waiting until all choristers are collected after rehearsals.
  • We will also send out a list of parents and the suburbs they live in, to assist in forming lift clubs.
