Dear Galen Parents/Guardians,
Next Wednesday 17th February Galen Catholic College will be hosting two important events to welcome all parents/guardians for the start of the 2016 school year.
1. The Junior school will be hosting the Year 7 OPEN AFTERNOON in the Year 7 classrooms. This is a great opportunity for parents/guardians of Year 7 students to informally meet with their child’s Year 7 Homeroom teacher and subject teachers. Parents/Guardians and teachers are able to put a face to a name and discuss the start of their child’s transition to secondary school.
2. The Galen Parents’ Association is also organising a free BBQ on the grass area in front of the Auditorium after the first ‘Homework Hub’ on Wednesday 17 February. Students from all year levels, particularly new Year 7 students, are invited to try the Homework Centre in the library and then stay for a BBQ afterwards.
All parents are invited to the BBQ to meet other parents, teachers and students.
Please take note that the Year 7 OPEN AFTERNOON will commence at 3:45pm and finish at 4:30pm
The Galen Parents’ Association BBQ will commence at 4:30pm.
In order to cater for the event successfully may I please ask the Year 7 parents/guardians to RSVP their attendance to the Year 7 OPEN AFTERNOON via a hard copy note (provided to all year 7 students on Thursday 10th February during homeroom).
Could parents/guardians for all other year levels (Yr 8 – 12) please RSVP their attendance for the GALEN PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION BBQ on Wednesday 17th February to me via email by Friday 12th February.
I look forward to seeing as many Galen parents/guardians at both events.
Deputy Principal – Staff & Students
