As you will be aware, we are currently dealing with a variety of challenges due to the covid19/coronavirus outbreak.
As a result, we are implementing added precautions to school routines.
Please be aware that we have received advice from Catholic Education that all gatherings for meetings etc. are to be postponed.
As such we will not be holding our P & F meeting tonight. Once we receive updated advice about such meetings, we will resume our regular P & F meetings.
RE: St Joseph’s Day & Publication Celebration
As mentioned above, we are implementing added precautions to school routines.
As such we will not be holding our scheduled St Joseph’s Day publication celebration on Thursday as planned. It is unfortunate that we are not able to proceed with this event, however, it is important for us to follow the advice that is being received from Catholic Education.
Over the coming days, we will pre-record various publications and share these with you via electronic means, so that you are able to see and hear some of the completed works from Term 1.
Once we receive updated advice about such events, we will resume our publication celebrations.
RE: Parent Teacher interviews scheduled for next week
Thank you to those families who have returned notes for the planned parent teacher interviews – scheduled for next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Please be aware that due to the precautions being implemented across our school communities these interviews will now take place via telephone.
We will continue with the planned times that you have nominated as far as possible.
