This weekend many of our day and boarding mothers are heading south to the picturesque  Southern Highlands for the City Country Mothers’ Weekend. Thanks to Sue Whipps,   Louise Wytenburg, and their team for the work they have done  in organising the weekend. We are looking forward to what is sure to be a relaxing, fun weekend away.

Our Year 9 girls are currently  enjoying themselves on the  Far North Queensland Experience.  By all accounts it’s been a wonderfully rewarding time for them so far. Year 9 Parents are invited to the  ‘Welcome Home Supper’ on Friday 17 August at 5pm. Please see details below.

The Father Daughter Dinner and Eucharist is on the weekend of the 25 and 26 August. Both events are always a special way for dads to spend some lovely time with their daughters. The Father Daughter Dinner has limited capacity at the venue, so if you haven’t booked yet and would like to attend, please do so as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.  See booking information below.

Spring is not far away which leads us to think about the 2019 Spring Fair!  This biennial event at Loreto Normanhurst is  a terrific  day with many stalls of yummy food, things to buy and things to look at: student performances, rides,  animals, the always-enticing cake stall, and many more. It is a great day for our community, and parents are encouraged to join the planning committee for this wonderful whole-school event. If you are interested in helping out at the Spring Fair next year, running a stall or joining the committee, please let us know via email. It is a great way to get involved   in the community, support the school and make new friends.

If you have any questions about PAL  contact us via email  – we would love to hear from you!
