On Sunday week we celebrate Father’s day. As with many other celebrations this year. COVID-19 has impacted on the manner in which we celebrate such occasions. Father’s day 2020 will be no exception. No matter how you celebrate Father’s day next week remember to tell Dad you love him no matter how old you are! The best present you can give your dad is to spend some special time with him and let him know you appreciate all he does for you and your family. Several years ago I was given for Father’s day a book called “To the World’s best Dad” The book is a picture book of young primary school children’s reflections on what they appreciate about their dads. Below are several extracts from the book:
I love you because when I need help you are always there.
Thanks for being nice to me for all of my life
I love you Dad because when the big boys come out you will protect me
My dad is good fun to play games with because he lets me win
I love my dad because he gave me the nicest present in the world – the gift of love.
I love my dad not because he’s a particularly famous person, but because he is a hard worker with a big heart
Since returning to fulltime classes in late May, it has come to my attention that the expectations around hair grooming, particularly haircuts is being ignored. Students are required to wear their hair in a neat and tidy manner. Hair should be well brushed and combed and it is assumed that hair will not be in such a condition as to invite comment.
It is important to note the following expectations around boys haircoats. and grooming be observed
• Extreme styles, mullets, bleaching, colouring or dyeing of hair are not permitted.
• Gel, mousse and hair spray or other similar substances should not be used.
• There will be no undercuts or steps.
• Nothing shorter than a number 2 comb is acceptable.
• Hair should not extend below the eye brows or touch the shirt collar.
• Students who do not abide by the haircut requirements will be asked to fix the identified problem and not return to school until the issue is resolved.
• Regular hair blitzs will be conducted to enforce these expectations.
• The ultimate decision as to whether or not a hairstyle is appropriate for the school will come from myself.
Your assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated.
Parents / Teacher over the phone interviews will be conducted by teachers over the coming weeks. The variation and timing of these interviews is due to the intervention of COVID 19 in recent months. These interviews are not compulsory but are available to parents who choose to take up this opportunity to touch base with their child’s teachers. Interviews will run for ten minutes. If you need additional time you will need to book an appointment with your child’s teachers after the interviews have finished for later on in the term. During the week each family would of received information regarding the online booking procedures.
If you are intending to make an appointment please do so ASAP. Thank you.
Today CTK staff and students participated in our Sports fun day. The students participated in a range of activities from relays to target golf, Capture the Flag, Horse Racing through to Noodle Javelin just to name a few. The children progressed around the sports tabloid throughout the day testing their skills and ability but most importantly having fun.
