Dear Parents and Guardians
Where has Term 2 gone!!!!!!!. I know we say and hear that statement every term but it does seem that the term only started a few weeks ago. So much has happened this term. It commenced with our Yr 5/6 Camp and included our St Bede's feast day celebration, a two week lockdown, reports, parent/ teacher /student conferences, First Eucharists and the many learning opportunities the children experience everyday. I believe everyone has certainly earned a well deserved rest over the holidays. Hopefully with the easing of restrictions families and friends can get together, whether that is on a holiday or even through the simple pleasure of having visitors in your homes. A huge thank you to everyone in our community for the support throughout the term.
Just a reminder that Term 2 finishes at 3.15pm today (NO SCHOOL TOMORROW) and Term three commences on Monday 12th July at 8.45pm
Last weekend there were four very special celebrations of First Eucharist. With the restrictions that were in place each mass was an intimate celebration that was special for the candidate and their family. I thank Fr John, Nicole Richardson, James Carbines and Bernadette Reed who assisted our First Communicants so wonderfully over the weekend.
The next three celebrations will take place on Sunday July 18th.
Yesterday 30 students from Yrs 5/6 represented St Bede's at a hockey gala day conducted in Box Hill North. It was a great day and the students were given an opportunity to develop their hockey skills in a competitive environment. Congratulations to the Yr 5 boys' team that made the semi finals.
Good luck to the Yr 3-6 students who represented St Bede's at cross country today. Luckily the weather was fine. Perfect for running!! With the current Covid restrictions the races were allowed to only run in groups of 20. I will let you know how they went in Term 3 once all the times are calculated.
Teacher /Parent /Student Conferences
Just a reminder that the Teacher/ Parent /Student conferences will be conducted from 3.40pm to 8.00pm tonight and from 9.00am to 1.00pm tomorrow. Everyone hopefully has booked in a time online through PTO. Your child's teacher has sent out a google meet link for you to enter the "meet" at your allocated time.
Enjoy your holidays
