Dear Parents and Carers,


Thank you for your patience and support over recent weeks. We are well aware of the extra pressure being experienced by families. Things continue to change almost daily. What hasn’t changed is the commitment of parents and teachers to children, our belief in the value of schooling, and the knowledge and faith that the current situation will pass and that we have much to be thankful for in this country.


I thank the students who have just got on with their learning and for the creativity and courage they have shown. I also thank the staff who have gone the extra mile to ensure that our students have still had the opportunity to learn and progress. I also thank the parents who have had to cope with children learning remotely.


We are also mindful of families who have had their economic livelihoods affected and the recent experience of this follows on from the challenges at the beginning of the year. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you need assistance with school fees.


Term 2


Many parents have kept their children home over the last few weeks. Some parents have no option but to send their children to school.


In Term 2 a remote program of learning will be offered for students at home or at school. To assist in our planning we ask that you inform the school whether you plan for your child/ren to attend school or stay home for Term 2. If you could please notify the school of your intentions by Tuesday 7 April.


As we approach Holy Week and the Easter Triduum may we continue to be people of hope and compassion. In times of social distancing may we care for our loved ones and be kind to each other.


Have a safe and restful weekend.
