Musicnet Summary 27 Jan 2020

Kia ora tātou

Over the last week I’ve seen more and more activity on the Musicnet list, so it seems the holidays are over! I do hope you have all had a rest, and refresh. 

There have been a large number of new members to the Musicnet list. Welcome to you all. My top tip is to make an email rule to automatically put all of the Musicnet emails into a folder, so you can manage the volume of emails that arrive. You don’t want to have so many extra emails that you miss that important email from a parent or that all students must go the gym after lunch!

A reminder also that changes to the Musicnet server and platform mean that you must log in with your email and password to the archives here. They are no-longer public. 

This email is a selective summary of the activity over the end of December and last week. Sit back with a cup of tea and have a read.
