We are launching our Coffee Morning program for the second semester but with a little twist. Like before, these Coffee Mornings will run regularly throughout the year. However, there will be some evening “wine and cheese” sessions too. There will be a different focus or activity for each session that will inform you about school policies, how we can collectively support your child, and also solicit your input and feedback on school initiatives and developments.
These informal sessions will be a great opportunity to get to know other parents, and share experiences. Refreshments will be provided. Parents lead very busy lives, but we are hoping you could spare an hour to ‘wind down’ and learn about something new. Our new program kicks off with an evening Zoom session on March 8. More details will be communicated in advance of each session.
It would be wonderful to see you at Coffee Morning sessions, even those in the evenings! If you wish to attend any of the sessions please rsvp to listing the sessions you would like to attend. Our program for the second semester can be found below:
