Dear Parents,

Information for Primary School parents regarding payment of fees

Catholic Education is committed to providing financial assistance to support families who have lost their economic livelihood as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The position of Catholic education is that no child will be denied a Catholic education because of financial circumstances.

Initial support to assist all families include:

  1. A refund on charges for school camps (as they have been cancelled for 2020 for Year 4-6 students).
  2. Fee statements for Term 2 will be delayed to week 5 of Term 2 (this week).

Where families are experiencing financial stress due to job loss, being stood down, reduction in work hours, business downturn or closure resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic the following support is available following a confidential discussion:

  1. Suspension of follow up activity on outstanding fees at the end of Term 1 until 31 July 2020.
  2. Full or partial fee remission or deferral. You are asked to indicate the level of assistance you feel you need at this time by completing a one-page fee assistance form on the following link:  COVID-19 Fee Assistance Form Your level of fee support will be confirmed as soon as possible.
  3. Families may apply for immediate deferral of Term 2 fee payments by completing the following link : 2020 COVID19 Request to Defer Payment of School Fees

Families whose employment situation has not been affected by COVID-19 can support the school by continuing to pay school fees as they fall due.. This will support our school to continue providing quality learning in a connected community that nurtures and cares for each other.

Financial assistance continues to be available for those families experiencing hardship not related to COVID-19, particularly those experiencing the effects of the bush fire season and the ongoing drought. Families are encouraged to contact me for assistance and more information.

Please note that all families will automatically receive Term 2 fee statements-  if you have already have applied for fee support, please ignore this Term 2  Fee statement. 

Your family is an important part of our school community. Your financial circumstances will not compromise the place of your children at our school. If you are experiencing any difficulties, I will confidentially ensure your child is not disadvantaged at this time.

Warmest wishes,

Holy Trinity's got ISO Talent

I am putting together a ‘Holy Trinity’s got ISO Talent’ assembly. Can you please email me any videos/images of your children who have learned a new trick/talent/skill during this Coronavirus situation? If your child is currently at school, I can video them on site.

Each clip is to be NO longer than 10-15 seconds.

There is no pressure to participate. I just thought it would be a cool idea to bring the community together.

Drop off and Pick up at Car park Reminder

Dear Families,

Welcome to week 2!

Just a reminder please about drop off and pick up arrangements to ensure we continue safety measures-  restricting traffic through and around the school.

All children are to please  be dropped to school and  picked up from the Carpark drop zone only. This includes any families who are walking their children home.  Parents are only to come to the front office if they are signing children in or out , who are arriving late or leaving early.  Pick up is not from the morning assembly area. Pick up and drop off can occur at the ring road at the front of the school when it is wet weather only.

Children at the ELC are to be picked up as usual.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. 

Kind regards,
Philippa Brearley
Principal

Drop off and Pick up at Ring Road

Good morning, 

As the weather continues with heavy rain, please drop your child/ren at the ring road out the front of the school and we will escort them into the hall.  We will do the same again with pick up this afternoon, if the rain continues.

Thank you, 

Warmest regards,
Philippa Brearley
Principal

COVID-19 Wet Weather Pick Up Arrangements

Following our communication to Primary School Parents yesterday which stated,

  • Parents will be asked to drop off and pick up only via the drive through.  Parents will not be allowed past the foyer of the school and are only to come to the front office if absolutely necessary. 

We have put in place the following as this afternoon will be wet weather pick up (and probably for the rest of the week if the forcast is right);

  • Pick up will be made through the front ring road.
  • Parents will drive through to where Mrs Brearley/Executive team will meet them.
  • Parents will stay in their car.
  • A runner will be sent in to get your child and bring them to your car.
  • Parents will then drive out of the ring road.
  • For this to work smoothly, we ask that no one park in the ring road this afternoon.
  • We thank you all for your assistance with this and your understanding.
