FRIDAY 15 March 2019
Dear Parents

This term has been extremely busy – all first terms are – but one that is only eight weeks long is especially busy, so for our boys and staff this holiday will be a very welcome break.

Thank you for your support this term; it has been wonderful to see so many of you at Wednesday music concerts, sports events and, of course, the Carnival. Your boys are very fortunate to have the level of support they do have and they do appreciate it, even if they forget to tell you so. Thank you too for all the assistance you provide in a myriad of ways. It is certainly noticed and appreciated.

Your son’s Industry Report will be uploaded to myBishopsLife this afternoon. As you go through this, please see the rubric below it which lists the descriptor for each code in each area. Your son’s marks for tests and specific tasks remain on myBishopsLife and will be further updated through the second term. The mid-year report will reflect the overall result for the first half of the year. Early next term there will also be grade meetings where you will have a chance to discuss your son’s progress with his teacher.

Please check the calendar online as well as myBishopsLife for the arrangements for the first week. School re-opens on Tuesday, 2 April.

Best wishes for happy holidays and safe travels.

Kind regards

Tuesday 2 April 2019
