|Wednesday 1st June||No classes for Year 9 students|

A supervision program will be available to support students whose parents are essential workers. This will be conducted in the Library from 8.45am – 3.20pm. You must book your child in if they will be attending for supervision on the day their class is cancelled. Please use the link on the letter sent via Operoo earlier this week.

Purple Day for The Gift
On Friday 10th June, all members of our community are invited to dress in purple to raise money and awareness for the local organisation 'The Gift.'
The Gift is an organisation based in Kyabram that exists with the sole aim of providing assistance for locals with cancer. Locals being anyone from our district - Kyabram, Stanhope, Rushworth, Girgarre, Tongala, Lancaster etc. The Gift has existed for many years and takes pride in the fact that they have raised over $625,000 to support locals with cancer. Help is provided to recipients by way of The Gift paying for groceries, travel to treatment related appointments, utility bills; basically anything deemed a necessity.
The annual Purple Weekend is seen as a major fundraiser to help continue raising money for local people going through a cancer journey. Due to Covid, fundraising efforts over the past few years have been quite difficult, so everyone’s support would be greatly appreciated.
We have a Whole College Assembly on this day and would love to see a sea of purple in our Brigidine Centre raising funds and awareness for the work of The Gift.
Don't forget your gold coin donation.
Start planning your purple outfit for the day!
