A Partnership in Faith
In this week’s Bulletin you will catch glimpses of last Sunday’s congregation of families, staff and friends. The blessings we receive as a community are many through your presence among us. The diversity of our community is especially evident in the photographs.
- Parent Information Nights: It was very good to meet our Year 11 and Year 12 Parents on Monday night. We were able to share with each other whowe are, as co-operators in your daughters’ final, and second to final year of secondary schooling.
Tonight we are expecting a good response from our Year 8 and Year 7 Parents in attendance at what is a crucial part of their involvement this year.
The Year 9/10 Parent Information Night is scheduled for Monday 20 February.
Parents & Friends Committee Meeting: A reminder that the first Parents & Friends meeting is scheduled for 7:30pm on Wednesday 22 February. The focus will be planning for Sports Day, an important sporting and social event on our calendar that will occur on Sunday 26 March. An invitation is extended to everyone to come along. No commitment is required, just a desire to learn more about what’s happening in the school and meet other parents.

The inaugural Sri Lanka Trip participants will be hosting a fundraising afternoon tea and screening of Lion at the Capri Theatre (141 Goodwood Rd) from 2:30pm on Sunday 26 February.

Each year a Sports Day Raffle is conducted to raise funds for the College with a wonderful variety of prizes to be won.
