Parent Association

Co-Presidents’ Message

No doubt many dads and daughters are looking forward to the two special events taking place this weekend, the Father/Daughter Dinner on Saturday night and the Father/Daughter Eucharist on Sunday morning.   We will have lots of photos to share next week and look forward to the feedback from this sellout event. 

WELL DONE DADS!

Since our last newsletter we have had some lovely feedback from Hornsby Council thanking our Parent Association for the generous donation to the Women’s Shelter from funds raised via our dad’s weekend away in Orange.  See extract from email below:

…On behalf of the Board of the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter, but more particularly the women accommodated at the shelter, thank you so much for the donation of $770.00… Please pass on our sincere thanks to all these wonderful men for their support …. The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter is a community based organisation which operates with limited Government help and mainly relies upon the support of the local community to continue to provide services to women in crisis.

SPRING FAIR – IS ON THE WAY

Keep your eye out for our dedicated Spring Fair newsletters that will commence next week and put your hand up to get involved!  We promise you will meet lots of lovely fellow parents and have some fun along the way while helping to raise funds for the school and continuing to nurture our very special Loreto community. 

 

FATHER/DAUGHTER EUCHARIST

SUNDAY 27 AUGUST 2017 – 9:15AM

Chapel and  Gardens, Loreto Normanhurst

A lovely way for fathers to share some special time with their daughter/s in the beautiful Chapel located within the grounds of Loreto Normanhurst.  Take some time to sit quietly and enjoy the ambiance of this spiritual space before heading out into the sunshine for a cup of tea and some light refreshments within the lovely grounds, adjacent to the Chapel.
