SCEGGS Religion and Ethics

Have you ever wondered how SCEGGS incorporates its Anglican tradition into the daily life of the School? How SCEGGS teaches about other religions or what Year 10 ethics classes cover? Come along to hear from Jenny Allum, Garry Lee-Lindsay and Julie McCrossin as they answer these questions and more, in an open forum for discussion. For parents and staff of all faith backgrounds, or no faith, please join us for what promises to be a frank and important discussion about our school.

When:

Tuesday 5 November 
  Drinks and Canapes from 7:00pm
  Panel and discussion from 7:30pm
Where: Joan Freeman Lecture Theatre
Parking: Joan Freeman Car Park

This is a free event but for catering purposes, please RSVP to https://www.trybooking.com/BFWMM

Class Parents 2020

We have received lists from most year groups for Class Parents for 2020, but if you would still like to volunteer as a Class Parent for 2020 please contact one of your Class Parents for this year and they will add you to their list. Class Parents, all lists to me by Friday 8 November please. 

Penny Gerstle
P&F President

 

 

As Term 4 ticks along, a reminder that it is time for Class Parents to start asking their year group for volunteers for Class Parents 2020. It’s NOT a Festival on Forbes year so that usually makes it easier. Below is the Class Parent role description. Please note that we have included a line about Class Parents being willing to accommodate members of The Trust, as they reach out to parents during the Wilkinson House Capital Campaign. If you would like to volunteer as a 2020 Class Parent, please contact one of the parents for 2019 and they will forward your name to me. We usually like four parents per year group, although sometimes Kindy-Year 2 can manage with three, and Year 12 usually has six to eight.

Class Parent Role Description
Class Parents act as liaison between parents, the P&F, the Trust and the School. They:
• Help to welcome new parents to the School
• Provide a link for all the parents of the Year group by organising a couple of Year group activities, to support generally the sense of social cohesion and community, and by giving the Trust a platform to talk (very briefly!) about the Capital Campaign
• Can generate interest and engagement in the School’s plans for the new buildings and for Scholarships as part of the School’s current Capital Campaign
• Provide invaluable assistance to the P&F and the Trust in organising various whole School functions from time to time
• Can help other parents to know who to contact within the School and to understand the culture of SCEGGS Darlinghurst
• Can help the School in various other ways on occasion

My term as President of the P&F comes to an end in March 2020 at our AGM. It has been a fun-filled role, lots of hard work and a great opportunity to get to know SCEGGS parents and staff. We are looking for a new President to take on the role from March. I am happy to remain on the Committee while the new President learns the role, if that is of help, or to assist the new President in any way that is useful. If you have any interest please do not hesitate to call me on 0408 29 11 96 to discuss, or I am happy to meet at the Rusty Rabbit for a chat.

Our next parent forum is on 5 November, from 7pm in the Joan Freeman Lecture Theatre. The topic for discussion is “SCEGGS, Religion and Ethics” and guest speakers will include Jenny Allum, Garry Lee-Lindsay and Julie McCrossin. Please put it in your diary. Bookings for catering purposes would be appreciated at https://www.trybooking.com/BFWMM

As the year draws to a close, the P&F would like to thank Class Parents for all their hard work during 2018. We have seen a wonderful mix of picnics, parties, coffee mornings, community events, movie nights and  family sporting activities during the year and all have been organised by our dedicated Class Parents.  We cannot thank them enough for all they do to continue the SCEGGS tradition of warm and inclusive community get-togethers.  We have a full contingent of Class Parents for almost all Year groups for 2019 too and we look forward to more fun in 2019.

2019 is of course a Festival on Forbes year and work to organise the Festival is well underway. If you would like to join the organising committee, we still have plenty of roles to fill so please email me at pgerstle@optusnet.com.au or call me at any time on 0408 29 11 96.

Finally and most importantly, the P&F would like to thank the wonderful teachers and staff of our School for all their hard work during 2018. A SCEGGS school year is always so busy and staff across SCEGGS put in an extraordinary amount of time and effort to ensure our students have every opportunity to participate and learn.  We hope all the staff have a restful break over the summer holidays, and wish you all a merry Christmas and  the happiest of New Years.  Till next year, with deepest gratitude,

Penny Gerstle
P&F President
