LAPTOP ROLLOUT

In the coming week, we are officially rolling out the laptops to our Year 3-6 students. They will begin their initiation into having their own laptop by participating in a ‘bootcamp’ with me, where we will look at some essential skills such as saving, printing, browsing the internet and looking after the laptop. All students in Years 3-6 will be asked to sign a ‘Laptop Operating Procedures’ document, which outlines what students are and aren’t allowed to do on their laptop. Please see the office if you would like to have a look at this document. The document is not intended to be restrictive for our students, but instead help them to understand the responsibility they have for looking after the laptop and using it safely and sensibly. The most important guideline for students to remember is that if they are not sure about something, they are best to ask an adult first.

LENT

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, when Catholics have a cross marked on their forehead with ashes to symbolise repentence and a new start. Traditionally, Catholics would fast during Lent and would make a mad dash on the day before Lent to use up all their indulgent food, which is where the tradition of Shrove Tuesday began. We will celebrate Shrove Tuesday  Tuesday 28th February, with our annual Race for the Golden Pancake at 2pm, and then we will gather for Ash Wednesday Mass at 9am on 1st March. We warmly invite you to join us for these events.
