Dear parents,

We are happy to be back at school this week and it’s great to see all students on campus and classes back to normal.

I will be sending a newsflash next week with details regarding the Parent Liaison Committee (PLC) which we would like to start again. We will be looking for 5 parents to take on roles as chairperson and members of the committee. Should we get more than 5 nominations, an anonymous online election will be held.

Student photographs will be held next Sunday October 17 and Monday October 18. Please make sure your child is wearing an ABIS top. Please also ensure that their clothing meets our guidelines found in theĀ Parent Handbook.

Next week you will also be getting a survey on the school communications to parents. I am interested to hear your perspective on the substance, frequency and manner of our school communications. Please do fill in the survey when you receive it.

The students will be organising a collection to assist families who have suffered from the effects of the cyclone. Please do support them as they do so.

Starting on Sunday, we will be relaxing the rules on our lunchtimes with primary students eating their lunches in class for the first 20 minutes then being allowed to go outside. The weather has cooled down and the students will enjoy being able to play outdoors. Secondary students will be able to go outside for their lunchtimes.

Next Tuesday October 19 is a public holiday so there will be no school on that day.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Dominic Robeau
