On Tuesday 9 August, Notre Dame CPS students had the option to come to school and dress up their bike, scooter or shoes for the day. It's been awhile since we've had some sunshine and Tuesday was no different with wet weather greeting our students in the morning. As this was an optional event and we had postponed the previous week, we decided to leave the day as planned. It was still great to see some very excited students dressing up their shoes, bikes and scooters for the day. There were also some very resilient parents joining their kids in the not so ideal conditions, even some getting their morning run in with their children. Many thanks to the fantastic Year 6 helpers who came early in the wet to help give out raffle tickets, take photos, give out prizes, stickers and help greet everyone coming to school. This created a great atmosphere for students coming to school and the ringing of bike bells were heard until the class bell - this would have been welcome relief to teachers setting up their classes in the morning. Unfortunately, due to the constant rain we had to cancel our planned obstacle course, but we will look for another day in the term when we can provide this option again for our students.

Great imagery of the teachers trying to set up class with all the bike bells ringing 🔔🔔🔔! Well despite the weather, I'm very happy to hear that many families braved the conditions to avoid the inevitable disappointment.
