Pupil Free Day
Monday 19 April. School resumes for term 2 on Tuesday 20 April.
Change to Canteen Open Days
At the recent Community Council Meeting, a number of initiatives for the school canteen were discussed.
As a follow up, we have decided to close the Canteen for recess and open lunchtime Tuesday – Friday, effective from Tuesday 2 March.
We will trial this for the remainder of the term.
There will also be a few special lunches between now and the Easter break.
2021 ‘Spirit’ Fete
The Fete Committee has been working tirelessly to plan and prepare for a COVID-safe fete that complies with both Government and Catholic Education guidelines. We have sought, and yesterday received, definitive advice on what restrictions we must follow in order for the fete to go ahead. Unfortunately, as a result of that advice, the Fete Committee, Community Council, and school have concluded that we are not able to hold our fete as planned on Saturday 13 March 2021.
Whilst this news is disappointing, this is not yet the last you will hear of the 2021 ‘Spirit’ Fete, which has not been cancelled, but postponed to the end of term 3. The exact date will be confirmed closer to the time. Rest assured that the watermelons, pumpkins and zucchini you are diligently nurturing will not go to waste! The Great Fete Veggie Grow Off will still go ahead as planned. Please watch the newsletter for further details.
We are aware that there are other fundraising events that usually take place around the time of the new fete date. We will be rearranging our fundraising calendar to reduce the fundraising load on families. We are also working on alternative fete options should the new timing produce similar restrictions. We will have a celebration for the children this year, one way or another!
I thank the members of the Fete Committee for their continued efforts and encourage anyone else who is considering helping with the fete to contact the Fete Committee at email@example.com.
