Justine Hofman – Head of P&F

We have reached the end of Term 2 and it really feels like things are getting back to normal. It is hard to believe this time last year we were in lockdown!

Reflecting on the first half of this year, I’ll admit I was a little daunted (read: overwhelmed!) at the idea of taking over as Head of P&F with such big shoes to fill, and not really knowing whether we would  be able to get the committees going as we’d hoped.

I am thrilled (and relieved) to say it’s been beyond my expectations. We have such an incredible and talented bunch of parents in our community. Being able to experience this first-hand through the committees and the events has been the most rewarding part of this role thus far. Thank you again to each and every one of you who has contributed your ideas and time. 

The second half of the year is action packed with Father’s Day on Friday 26 August 2022, a parent’s night out on Saturday 17 September 2022, a family shabbat event on Friday 21 October 2022 and of course the spring family camping on the weekend of Friday 4 November  2022 – Sunday 6 November 2022. Bring. It. On!

Wishing everyone a great holiday break and we are looking forward to Term 3.

Don’t forget to order your Term 3 Challah via this form  before Monday 18 July 2022.
