Parent Association

Thank you to all the parents who joined us at the PAL meeting on Wednesday. Thank you also to Ms Ugonotti for joining us and sharing her highlights from last term and plans in hand for the remainder of this year and into next.

Heading in to Term 3 our first event is for the mums who will enjoy a  relaxing and fun weekend away at the City Country Mothers’ Weekend in Mudgee on the weekend of 9th – 11th August. Our thanks go to the organising team  of Suzanne Barron, Virginia Cluff and Judi North-Coe.

Our attention is also with the planning of our Spring Fair on Sunday 3rd November. Please see the meeting dates  in the Spring Fair table below. For those who are interested in helping, we invite everyone to the next couple of meetings.   From the 4 September, we’ll  have  Team Leader meetings for the various sections and they will coordinate with their team members. We will bring everyone together for a final debrief on timings and procedures in the final week before big day.

We have been very successful with filling the team lead roles for Communications, Operations, Finance, Entertainment, Boarder Pavilion, Ex-Students, Retail stalls, School stall and Food stalls so thank you all who  have volunteered for the challenge! We are still seeking assistance with someone / a team who can help to coordinate sponsorship and donations from the community so if you’ve done anything like this before or would like to learn what it involves then please call or email Paul or Louise to find out more. 

 If you are interested in joining a team, please contact Paul or Louise, email PAL or come along on Wednesday 7th and 21st August at 7:00pm, in  GBC 1.02 (near the Mary Ward statue, next to Student Services)  to find out more.

Wishing you all a safe and enjoyable weekend as we continue to enjoy more gatherings together with friendship building, fundraising and being a  Loreto parent! 

To get in touch with us please contact us via email.
