Dear STJPA families


What a week it's been - we cannot believe we are here again. We have aimed to try with all our might to ensure that we can plan for some fun and enjoyable events in a safe way in 2021. We want to ensure that we can once again gather together, but know that we also need to be flexible in the current climate. 


Sadly, our Pancake Tuesday morning could not proceed as planned. We'd like to thank Zoe Saunders, Bec Marland, Sally Hansen and Jo Picking for putting their hands up to lead this for our children. We thank them for what they had prepared, even though it couldn't go ahead. We hope that we can do it properly next year. 


Our school disco also had to be postponed in light of current restrictions. Thanks to Sarah Webb for her work in preparing this beloved event. We will let you know updates about when it can be held in due course.


Rescheduled STJPA Meeting

Due to the current lockdown restrictions, our first STJPA meeting for 2021 will now be held next Tuesday 23rd February at 7.30pm in the board room, or via Google Meet if restrictions require. We ask that one rep per year level attend the meeting, as well as any co-ordinators of any events in the first half of the year. 2021 will still require us to be flexible as we try to organise events in a covid safe way for our community, but we will do our very best to make make magic happen.


Easter Raffle and Hot Cross Bun Drive

Next week we will be sending out information about our annual Easter Raffle and Hot Cross Bun drive.
