COVID 19 Updates

15 February 2021

Big picture


I want to thank our community for the way they delivered their children to school this morning and followed our Alert Level 2 protocols. I have placed the information below for parents to review. Your help with this is very much appreciated.

We had a Lent Liturgy this morning and we will have a Liturgy at school for Ash Wednesday at 10 am. We do ask that parents do not attend as we can only serve our children. Bishop Steve has asked we sprinkle the Ashes over the children and have no physical contact.

We will decide about our school swimming sports tomorrow/Wednesday so we can make an informed decision.
