2 Bethune News

TO ALL 2 BETHUNE PARENTS  

Dear Parents,

This is to advise that Mrs. Theresa Bethune is extremely unwell with Pneumonia. Just when we were thinking she was on the mend, she has gone downhill again and will now be away from school until Wednesday 2 June. 

Balancing relief staff with not knowing Theresa’s exact day of return has been challenging. From today, Mrs. Charlotte Fitzpatrick will teach the class for the next three school days. Charlotte is one of our Classroom Support Teachers and works in this room so knows the children and the routines. Her email address is Charlotte.fitzpatrick@cg.catholic.edu.au if you need to contact her in the next few days.

We wish Theresa a speedy recovery and I thank you all for your acceptance and understanding.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Yours sincerely

Regards,
David Austin
Principal
