Bishops: Diocesan College - Prep Post
THURSDAY 29 June 2017
Dear Parents

Our College colleague and 1st XV coach, Richard Smith, remains in a stable condition in ICU in Vincent Palotti Hospital. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

There are many boys to congratulate on recent selections and achievements but we will include these in the first newsletter of next term.

Half-year reports are now available on myBishopsLife. Arrangements for the first day and week of next term are listed below. Please ensure that your son arrives on the first day of school with a proper haircut. The boys know that they have to arrive ready for the term on the first day.

Thank you for your support and involvement on so many fronts this term. Your children are very fortunate. Some boys leave us now and I want to wish them and their families much happiness and success going forward.

School opens next term on Tuesday, 25 July. I hope you will be able to have some downtime with your children this holiday.

Safe travels and best wishes.

Kind regards
