With the ever-changing nature of society currently, we are constantly monitoring and
adapting plans. One of the plans that have had to be changed yesterday is the Yr 6
Canberra trip. Unfortunately, this is a long-held tradition at St Luke’s and one the
students in Yr 6 look forward to as a “rite of passage” from our school, and we had to
make the difficult decision, after BCE advice, today to cancel the proposed trip.
Currently, we have been informed that no camps, excursions, assemblies or events
can go ahead in Term 3. We have tentatively booked a camp for Yr 6 in Term 4 and we
are hopeful that this and the Yr 5 camp will be able to go ahead. We will receive advice
on this from BCE in Term 3.I commend the way in which the Yr 6 students handled the news yesterday. They
demonstrated our quality of resilience in being disappointed but understanding why
this couldn’t go ahead as planned, and even volunteering to come back in December
to go on the Canberra trip (sorry kids not happening!).
