Many thanks to our teachers who have spent many hours, before and after school, running Parent/Teacher Interviews. It was great to be able to offer these in a face-to-face format as well. The next official communication from the school will be the end of year reports that will come home at the end of term 4. However, as always, if you have any concerns please contact your child’s class teacher.
CV-19 IMPACTS ON COMING EVENTS
There are quite a few events approaching for the remainder of this term. It comes as no surprise to anyone that these events have or could be impacted by Coronavirus in one way or the other. This is frustrating for everyone, but it is worth considering that we are quite fortunate to have our students at school and that we are in a State, where we can hold these events at all! It is only natural for every child and adult to wish things could be run in the normal way, but as we all know this is not possible, at this stage.
The CV-19 theme for the remainder of the year is to be agile and flexible, when planning events!
We have reviewed the list of events for term 4 with the staff and the Parents and Friends. Next week this information will also be presented to the School Board. The following term 4 events have been flagged as requiring a review, closer to the date:
Week 2 – Book Week
Week 8 – Graduation Assembly
Week 8 – Carols Night
Week 9 – Graduation Dinner
Last week, we held our first assembly for the term. There were quite a few certificates handed out and a number of very excited children too! For this event we divided the School into three groups and gathered in the marvellous Stella Maris Room.
Congratulations to all the children making their Confirmation and First communion over the coming weeks, the first of these beginning next Monday.
YEAR 5 CAMP
We wish the Year 5 students and teachers all the best for next week and their camp at Wellington. Let’s hope the weather holds up for them all, as they have a wonderful range of events planned for the three days.
The School Sports Day is quickly approaching and we have emailed a letter about this to all families.
Under current conditions it will not be possible to allow parents to attend the Sports Day. The planning of the day has been modified to meet the requirements of the time. The popular Colour Run will be included as one of the “stations” on the day.
School swimming begins for some classes next week and other classes in week 9. Information has already been shared with these classes, especially outlining the parent restrictions, that cannot be avoided for this event too!
This is now officially under way and we are preparing:
- Where classes will be
- Where students will be
May I wish all the Fathers a very happy Fathers’ Day for Sunday. The weather looks fantastic but I hope you don’t have to cook the BBQ!
