Co-Presidents’ Message

Spring is here – and that means our Spring Fair is not too far away.   If you have not had the chance, make sure you take a little time to read our dedicated bulletin that came out earlier today.  So many ways to help and get involved, we really need you!  So each week please read the dedicated Spring Fair newsletters and keep up to date with what is needed.

 

FATHER/DAUGHTER DINNER:

Another successful and extra special event during our 120-year anniversary.  Thanks to Lauren Kirkby and the Development team for making the evening so wonderful with all the special touches we have come to love.   Anthony Whipps was MC for the night and from what we hear there were quite a few interesting facts and a little bit of fiction thrown in to add some entertainment to the night!   It was such a lovely sight as I waited to pick up after the event to see all the fathers and daughters leaving together, in many cases holding hands, chatting and laughing about the night – priceless!

 

FATHER/DAUGHTER EUCHARIST: 

Thank you to Martha Heaton and Giannella Merhi who gave up their time to help serve morning tea at the conclusion of the Father/Daughter Eucharist last Sunday.  A gorgeous morning with clear blue skies, the Eucharist was 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.  

 

CITY/COUNTRY MOTHERS’ WEEKEND AWAY: 

FRIDAY 24 – SUNDAY 26 NOVEMBER 2017

Our team caught up virtually last night (dialling in across city & country locations) to put the finishing touches on our lovely weekend away.  We already have over 90 mums who have paid deposits.   More information will be sent out directly to those who have registered in the next few weeks, so make sure you are on the list by registering via the Trybooking website.  Our team names and numbers are below and we would encourage you to get in touch with one of us if you are not sure about where to stay, or if you are not sure who else is going from your year group, we can put you in touch with others.   So come along, ALL ARE TRULY WELCOME.
