Here at MacKillop we are really missing the face-to face involvement of our parents in the classrooms, at drop-off and pick-up, support at weekly assemblies and special days, like Fathers’ Day and Mothers’ Day. Even our long anticipated MacKillop Muster, Colour Run and Sports days will be so alien without our families’ direct involvement. We pay the price of less direct involvement for the time being, in knowledge that we are fighting for our most vulnerable family and community members, and in anticipation of the eventually lifting of restrictions when the virus is under control.
But our COVID-safe planning has allowed a special opportunity this week for our families to visit the College. The Sticky Beak Open Twilight this Thursday is a golden opportunity for our families to see firsthand the fantastic learning experiences with which our students have been engaging this year. We will also be welcoming visitors eager to gain an insight into the life of the College. For many, it will be the first opportunity to see the new learning spaces and other facilities delivered at the beginning of the year.
This Sticky Beak Open Twilight will be like a bridge across the COVID barrier, open for a short time only, a unique opportunity to experience again firsthand the life of our College as experienced everyday by our children. I know they are eagerly preparing to share their school life you, and will be so proud to say “We are MacKillop”.
I look forward to meeting you on Thursday during our Twilight.
Come and have a Sticky Beak!
