Many thanks to all our wonderful dads for coming along to our Father’s Day brekkie and to those of you who ‘had a close shave’, hammered, played and got into the swing of a late start to work – BRAVO!!!
We wish all our dads and grandads a very happy and relaxing Father’s Day!
Just to clarify : there is no need for children who ride to school to leave early today. Our goal is to try and alleviate the parking spaces for funeral guests – cyclists do not impact on this, consequently there is no need for them to leave early.
We will therefore release any children who rode to school at the normal time of 3.00pm.
Thank you again for your understanding and support.
Parents are asked to please read the letter belowand to reflect upon the conversations that you may find yourself caught up in from time to time, or indeed, on those conversations that you may have initiated.
To be clear, there is no place for judgemental talk in our school.
Those who spend their time talking negatively about others need to rethink.
Conversations have a way of coming back to school when parents talk about other parents, staff members and/or children. While we feel that the parents that engage in this type of behaviour are in the minority, it is good for all of us to reflect and make sure that we are continuing to ‘aim high’
As a school based upon Gospel values, we have high expectations of each and every person. While the secular world might hold up gossip, put downs and negativity as having some entertainment value, in real life it is hurtful and unjust.
Hopefully all of us are growing in wisdom and discernment as each day passes. In this way we can be the very best version of ourselves; the very best parents we can be for our precious, impressionable children.
All the very best for your meeting with teachers and children today – may it be a positive,uplifting and valuable experience for all involved!
Thank you for making the time to attend to encourage and motivate your child to keep on persisting and doing their best, while also supporting them to remain curious and rewarding creativity in their thinking!
