Dear Year 7 Parents and Caregivers, I trust that you have had an enjoyable holiday season and that your son is looking forward to starting as member of the St Bernard’s College community. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the arrangements for your son’s first day on Thursday, 31 January. Students and parents / caregivers are invited to gather in the O’Brien Centre Gymnasium between 8.25am and 8.40am. They are asked to meet their homeroom teacher by their House flag exactly as they did for Orientation Day. At 8.45am, the students will go with their homeroom teacher to an assembly. At this time, parents / caregivers are invited to a welcome morning tea in O’Brien Hall which will be hosted by the St Bernard’s College Welcoming Community Group. As per the Uniform Policy, students are required to be in summer uniform when they arrive at school. There is also no necessity to bring every book on the first day. The minimum requirement is for something to write with and something to write on. Teachers will let your son know which books are required and when. Your son will be issued with his laptop on either Thursday or Friday. Classes will end at 2.55pm. All parents and caregivers are invited to attend the Year 7 Information Evening at 7.00pm on Thursday, 31 January in the Frank FitzGerald Auditorium. This will be your opportunity to meet Mr Tim Cunningham, Year 7 Level Leader, and your son’s homeroom teacher. Your son is not required to attend this evening. Again, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome your son to the St Bernard’s Community and I look forward to working in partnership with you and your family throughout 2019 and beyond. Kind regards,

Clive Haese Assistant Principal (Student Wellbeing)
