12.02 Family & Student Update
Dear Parents and Students,
Winter Fair is nearly here, and we are all working very hard to prepare for next Friday! Thank you for all you have been doing to help support our Winter Fair, especially our Parent Teacher Association Executive and Winter Fair Volunteers! The afternoon promises to be a lot of fun for our students, and it will be the first time they have been able to experience a Winter Fair since 2019!
Here is the schedule for the day. Parents, please note that if you arrive with your child you will need to wait in the 119 Hall until the fair officially begins at 12:15. When students arrive, they will go to their Homeroom/Advisory classes to have their attendance taken, as it is an official instructional day. After attendance, students will all begin to participate in the fair, according to their schedules and divisional plans. For some students, that will mean that they are operating game booths, getting ready to perform, and, for others, playing games, eating delicious food, and helping around the campus! It will be a busy day and a busy place.
Here is the schedule of activities.
Things to Note
Please make careful note of the following:
- buses will operate according to a late start schedule but will not be taking students home that day;
- immediate family members are welcome to attend (grandparents, aunties etc.) but guests outside of your immediate family are not able to attend this year;
- everyone who comes on campus must provide a negative RAT, must sign in using the LeaveHomeSafe app and must show security staff their blue vaccine code.
As always, there are some truly terrific prizes to be won, so I certainly hope you’ve got your raffle tickets in. My heartfelt thanks to our amazing parent community who continue to amaze us all with your generosity and commitment to our school community. I wish you all the best of luck in the draw. Who knows? You might bring home a great early holiday present to check off the list!
Winter Fair Performance Schedule
Knowing how hard our music teachers have been working with their students – and how hard the students have been practicing – you won’t want to miss any chance you have to catch some of the musical performances this year. They promise to be stunning!
Divisional Principals will also share specific details related to Winter Fair in their newsletters so keep your eyes out for their messages this week.
We are genuinely excited for our Winter Fair next week, and we hope you are planning on attending. Remember to bring a healthy appetite with you!
Happy Weekend to all!
Head of School
