RAPID ANTIGEN TESTS
As you are aware the second lot of Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) came home with each student again last week. If your child hasn’t been at school then please call in and pick up your pack, one per child.
This week all students should have been tested on Monday morning before coming to school. For the remainder of this week please test your child/children on Wednesday morning before coming to school and Monday and Wednesday of next week, hopefully our final week of testing. If your child tests NEGATIVE you DO NOT have to contact school. If your child tests POSITIVE then YOU DO CONTACT school.
My sincere thanks to those diligent parents who have been testing their children. We have had a low amount of positive cases and hopefully it remains that way..
ENROLMENTS FOR 2023
Some families have been asking about when to enrol their children for 2023. We open enrolments in Catholic Education Week, which always has St Patrick’s Feast day in it. We also have tours during that week both during the day and evening as well.
They will be on Tuesday 15th March @ 9:30am & 7:00pm and
Thursday 17th March @9:30am & 7:00pm
If one of these times suits you then please ring the office on 9359 5423 to book yourself in.
Also if families are unable to attend tours at this time we can arrange other times which suit both prospective parents and the school.
PREP WELCOME MASS (6PM) AND BBQ (7PM) WILL BE ON SATURDAY 2ND APRIL ALL GOING WELL.
NO CANTEEN THIS FRIDAY 18th and NEXT FRIDAY 25th
Once again let us hope and pray that the Government is correct in their prediction that by the end of February we will be past the worst of Omicron. Take care, stay safe and stay well everyone.
Welcome Back once again.
