Friends & Founders Day

Our annual Friends and Founders Day celebrations are coming up on Tuesday the 11th of June. This is an important day in our calendar as it celebrates God’s faithfulness in the school and celebrates those who have gone before us to make this school what it is in its 36 year history.

We celebrate with two key events in the day. We start with a pastor’s breakfast where church leaders from all our local churches are invited to a special cooked breakfast. We share what is happening in the school and ask them to pray for us before they head off for work. Invitations will be sent soon so please encourage your churches leadership team to come.

 The second key event happens at night and is for our whole school community. We put on a free burger dinner for all our school community before having a quick AGM highlighting what is happening in the school and what we are focusing on, and then have an amazing guest speaker while our children watch a movie and enjoy treats.

 This is always a great night and we are thrilled to have always had nearly every family at this. This year’s speaker is Jonathan Arthur. Jonathan works for N4L the service that provides internet safety and protection for school’s across the country. Jonathan is going to talk about how to keep ourselves and our families safe online. This is an important message for everyone to hear.

 To help us continue to make each Friends and Founders Day a memorable one we are looking for some help please. We would be really keen for anyone who may be able to help us please oversee the day, another one or two to help cook food for the pastor’s breakfast, and a few who would be  willing to help us bar-be-que some burger patties and help prepare burgers at night.

If you are in a position to help us on Tuesday the 11th of June please let Sarah in the school office know.

To enable the Trustees to carry out their SB responsibilities, PBSB members have permanent permission to be absent from any or all PB meetings with the exception of the AGM and subject to quorum requirements, however they will be subject School Board meeting rules, including not being absent from more than 2 consecutive SB meetings without prior permission of the School Board.

PBSB Members will also keep themselves up to date with PB business, make themselves available to participate in employment related matters such as employment interviews, provide to the PB a written report within 5 days following a SB meeting and provide a written report to the SB within 5 days following a PB meeting.
