Your child, as a part of Grafton Public School Dance Ensemble, has been selected to
perform at the Public Schools NSW Central Network Dance Festival. The dance
festival will be held at Coffs Ex-Services Club (CEX) on Thursday 19th June, 2014

banding. As the day is long, I am asking that you send your child’s foundation with
them for re-application. Costuming will be as per the Eisteddfod and all costuming
