On behalf of the P&F we would like to welcome parents, friends and families to Term 2. The P&F held Term 2’s meeting last Monday 8 May in the GBC. The agenda addressed the many successful fun filled events of Term 1 and the plans and up to date events for Terms 2 and 3. We thank the many parents and friends involved in coordinating and participating in Term 1 and we look forward to seeing you all again for the exciting events planned this year.
Loreto Kiribilli and Loreto Normanhurst Morning Tea
The parents, friends and staff of Loreto Kiribilli were welcomed by Sue Whips (President P&F Loreto Normanhurst) and Barbara Watkins (Principal Loreto Normanhurst) last Friday 12 May. The generous hospitality amongst the beautiful serene grounds of Loreto Normanhurst were enjoyed by all for the annual morning tea with our sister school. We graciously thank Loreto Normanhurst for hosting this event. It was an honour to introduce this year’s guest speaker Cathy O’Connor, CEO of NOVA Entertainment and mother to Year 12 student Ellie. Cathy gave up her busy work schedule to speak to an audience of inspired mothers about her role, personal journey and the challenges to woman in the work place and in particular that of a CEO Role. This speech was so encouraging and informative to all. Cathy we cannot thank you enough for speaking on the day, you are a tremendous role model to all.
Preparation is well on its way for this year’s Winter Ball. Please save the date Saturday 29 July at the Sydney Hilton Hotel. We are delighted to have Mark Beretta from Sunrise, Channel 7 as this year’s MC. A fun filled night with entertainment is planned. Details will be available in the upcoming newsletter. Get your tables ready ladies and gentlemen, this will no doubt be the night of nights.
