Dear Parents

Thank you all for your wonderful support over this first term of 2019. To all those parents that have assisted in any way, we thank you all for your contribution to our wonderful school.

We would like to wish Ms Melody Durrheim many blessings as she marries Mr Craig Green and returns as Mrs Green next term.  Also, to staff having birthdays during the holidays, we congratulate Mr Vincent and Mrs Wallace.

 

We have many exciting activities planned for your boys in the new term and we look forward to welcoming them back, refreshed and ready for new challenges. Wishing you all a blessed holiday and special times with family and friends.

Kind regards

TAKE NOTE
Easter Eggs

With Easter just around the corner, we would like to start collecting Easter Eggs to donate to old age and children's homes. The easiest to distribute are the marshmallow strips so if you would like to contribute to this collection, please do so in the first week or two of the new term.  We will distribute them just before Easter.
Knitting

Please be reminded of our knit a square initiative.  We have displayed our square collection in the foyer of the school so if you are able, please add yours to our collection.  If there are any people able to sew these together to form small blankets, please pop in and chat to Wendy in the office. Your assistance will be much appreciated.

GENERAL INFO

Sport

Our Winter sport sign-up sheets have gone out. Please ensure that you take a little time to sign your son up via this format as it allows us to formulate our registers and ensure that we have enough coaches for the number of boys signed up. All boys are expected to participate in a team sport at Bishops. The overview of our sport timetable for term 2 and 3 is available online, on our website. 

 

Tag rugby boys would have received a separate sign-up as well so that boys can be allocated to teams. Please purchase your t-shirt from the School Shop - they have a list of names and will advise in what team your son will be playing.

Aftercare Holiday Club

 

Please book directly with Mrs Rheeder should your son wish to attend Holiday Club from 25 to 29 March.
