Community Zone Updates
#SurreySings is a project to bring a community of singers together while we’re physically apart, and provide all students with a spirit lifting video. Students will individually record themselves singing and then the audio and video will be put all together to create a virtual choir of Surrey voices.
All students are welcome to take part- no prior experience or posh recording equipment required. For more information please take a look at here and if you have any questions, contact Izzy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's a selection of what your elected Community Zone Officers have been up to recently!
