Revised plans for Founders’ Day 2017

In light of the sudden death of Year 9 student Ben Northey, we’ve changed our plans for Founders’ Day 2017. The Year 12 REconnect day will still go ahead as planned from periods 3 through to 5. The rest of the school will participate in a Founders’ Day ceremony during Periods 1 & 2. This will have an indigenous theme and there will also be a healing ceremony during this gathering. All Galen students are requested to attend as its important that we come together as a Catholic community.

For the remainder of the day students will attend timetabled classes as per a normal school day.

The carnival stalls and activities that were originally planned will take place later this term. This date will be confirmed soon.

Thank you,
