SPRING FAIR 2017 – ANOTHER GREAT COMMUNITY EVENT 

A dedicated final Spring Fair “thank you” newsletter will be despatched very soon, thanking our wonderful sponsors, but we wanted to just say WOW, what an incredible weekend across our school community, starting on Saturday with the “set up” teams and finishing late Sunday with the “clean up” crew.    It was a privilege to lead the Spring Fair Committee 2017 – such a dedicated group of parents who gave so much to ensure we had a very special day for the school and wider community.  

Louise and I would like to acknowledge our team – one of the wonderful things about volunteering is meeting new friends and having spent many hours across many months with this group, I feel I have made a few new friends across several year groups (lucky us!!).  Our thanks go to Julie-Ann Coulton, Katrina Leonardi, Jane Dalton, Paul White, Mal Foubister, Julie Martin, Suzi Sherwood, Geoff Anderson, Caitilin Studdert, Angela Nimmo, Sally Oong, Angela Quinn and Rebecca Bissett.

If you missed out on Spring Fair 2017…don’t despair, there is still time to do a little shopping online.  See the links below to take a virtual wander around the silent auction, 120 year memorabilia items and of course the very popular Boarders’ Farmers Market merchandise:

  • to see our special remaining silent auction items at discounted prices click here .
  • to purchase the beautiful Loreto Normanhurst 120 Year memento Champagne Flutes or Water Bottle click here .
  • to buy the brilliant Boarders’ merchandise purchase through your Flexischools account.

We would also like to acknowledge our fantastic partners from the school who work so closely with us across all PAL sponsored events – Alicia Maunsell, Lauren Kirkby and Grace Paraino – our HUGE thanks to you.  Finally, to Rowena Curtis, Archivist, who brought the 120-year celebration pavilion to life through her passion and dedication to showcasing the history of this special place – we LOVED working with you.

Next week we will share how much money the Spring Fair raised for the school and at our annual general meeting on 22 November we will present Ms Barbara Watkins with a cheque representing our donation to the school from all funds raised this year – a very satisfying way to close out the formal PAL activities for 2017.

 

WELCOME TO NEW PARENTS 2018

Louise and I had the opportunity to present to our new parents at Orientation Day this week.  Such a special day for new students and parents alike.  We welcomed these parents to our community and conveyed to them what a special place Loreto Normanhurst is. 

 

ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL YEAR 7 EVENT

We would like to acknowledge Jane and Tim Dalton for hosting the Year 7 Parent Evening a couple of weeks ago.  There were over 80 Year 7 parents present and it was a really lovely evening.  Thanks Jane and Tim Dalton for opening your home and being such wonderful hosts!
