"BACK into the SADDLE" 

Monday 31st Aug at 8.40

The 3 messages from the instructor to the young man who fell off the horse while learning to ride

+Get back into the saddle

+Get back into the saddle

+Get back into the saddle

These words mirror the approach to the College reopening for learning on Monday 31st Aug

+Get back to the usual routines

+Get back to the usual routines

+Get back into the usual routines

Repetitive but practical.

Fear should not be the way we live our lives.

Normalising the structures of life is the way we can cope best with the present situation and the disruption we have all experienced recently

On Monday we will be aiming for the usual routines of the College that existed before lockdown

Some notable exceptions

+We have changed some of the daily assembly structures - from whole school to year levels for the next few weeks

+Masks can be worn by both teachers and boys if they so wish in class and around the school.The College scarf can be a substitute mask providing it covers the nose and mouth

+Masks are compulsory travelling on public transport

Unfortunately, many of the College community building events have had to be postponed or cancelled. More details later.
[The Mother’s dinner, The Father Son Breakfast, The parent teacher interviews, Sacramental mass]

Sporting events for the first two weeks back are on hold until we have more information

This lockdown has been different but not without its problems and issues.

Congratulations to all our parents for the way you have had to juggle work, parenting, home teaching and the usual routines of family life.
Your reward will be when the just ruse
Courage( not fear) is the quality we need in this present situation.

In His Peace
