 Dear Parents,  

 As part of the Religious Education Curriculum, all students in Year 4 will participate in a First Holy Communion Student Retreat Day on Friday 14 June, held at the St Matthew’s Parish Centre.  

 The purpose of this day is to further explore what the Eucharist is through a range of interactive and meaningful activities, such as bread-making, movie clips, drama, and prayer. The day will be facilitated by Mrs Milton and Miss Whiteford. Our Year 4’s are welcome to wear free-dress on this day.

 For the day to run smoothly, we require 3 or 4 parent helpers who can assist with some activities. (Banner making, bread making, preparing and cleaning up lunch). Can you please let me know via email if you are able to assist on the day, even if only for an hour or two.  

 We also enjoy a shared lunch, so please send a plate of savoury food in with your child. 

 Please let me know if you have any further questions. 

Kind regards,  

Susan Milton
