As you know tomorrow is our CEDP wide fundraiser for the flood disaster victims, Fiver for Flood Victims. While we do try to limit the amount of money we ask of our parent community, we feel that this is an important Social Justice initiative as it directly supports the Option for the Vulnerable and Poor in our Catholic Social teaching. I suggested in the letter to parents that students try and donate the ‘fiver’ themselves as they can understand that they can directly contribute to the support of others less fortunate. Teachers will also relate the ‘rainbow mufti’ idea to the Bible story of God sending a rainbow as a sign of hope after the floods.
We hope that our small acts of charity will be a sign of hope after the floods for needy communities.
I also wanted to say thank you to our families as we continue to navigate through these challenging COVID times. We have been so appreciative of the way parents have come to collect children when they may be sick or kept their children home when they may be unwell. Testing of children by their parents has ensured that they don’t come to school if they are sick. This has helped keep our school community quite safe when other schools have had quite a spread of COVID throughout their school. Thank you for your continued support.
Have a wonderful week,
