Welcome back to a brand new term which suddenly looks completely different to the challenges and difficulties we faced last term with the Covid restrictions now being mostly lifted. I must say, it was wonderful being able to see everyone’s faces again as I walked around the school. With most restrictions being removed, we should be able to get back to a more normal school routine. This means we can now have our weekly assemblies where parents are welcome to attend. The same applies for whole school and class Masses on Thursday mornings and interschool sport. Parent and teacher meetings can proceed without restrictions. I think most parents are happy to hear that you can now go back into the classrooms. I did feel really bad for our Kindergarten parents at the start of the year not being able to participate in the morning routine of reading to their child or playing a game to help settle them for the day. Excursions and the camp can proceed once again which is wonderful.
