From the Principal

Week 9 Term 2 2021

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



First Eucharist

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.


Cross Country

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
