Bus and Snack Pack Bookings
To try and help make the dress rehearsal evening as easy as possible for you, we will be running a one-way mini-bus from LFK to Xavier College on the Friday afternoon departing LFK at 3.30pm sharp. Bookings are essential and students will be fully supervised by LFK staff. There are only 42 spots on the bus, please book in soon to avoid disappointment. We are also offering ‘Snack Packs’ which will be at Xavier College for pick up Friday evening. Snack Packs include; a piece of fruit, water, Mini Pretzels and Grainwaves and are $10 per child. They must be pre-ordered at least a week before.
Next term you will see the backstage roster for volunteer parental supervision throughout the shows for both senior concerts and the dress rehearsal. Please put your name down in an open space on the roster if you are able to help out! We really appreciate your support in helping the concert run as smoothly and safely as possible while the students are enjoying themselves. We do require all volunteer parents to have a valid Working with Children Check, which can be done online. Please note that we only require parent volunteers for the senior concerts, all backstage helpers for the junior concert will be LFK staff. It is greatly appreciated to have any nurses or medically trained parents backstage. Any nurses please put NURSE under your name on the roster.
Party in the Park
Due to the LFK concert being held all on one day this year, we thought it was a great idea to host a Party and barbeque in celebration of the fantastic work all of the kids have put in to the 2018 concert! The Party will be held on Sunday the 2ndof December, times and more details will follow soon!
Please keep absences to an absolute minimum throughout the remainder of Term 3 and Term 4. Teachers find it very difficult to move forward with routines when students are not in attendance. If your child cannot attend class, please call to notify reception of the absence.
Please keep an eye out for information posted within the foyer, as all important information will be posted there for parents to see.
In Term 4, arrival times for each concert will be distributed to the students performing in each concert, as well as Costume Checklists. Please see LFK reception with any food allergies or medical information relevant to your child, so we can ensure the safety and wellbeing of all students throughout the concert.
The 2018 Concert will be held at Xavier College in Kew, the street address is: Xavier College Senior Campus, 135 Barkers Road Kew.
