Dear Bishops Parents

I would like to bring the following important information to your attention:

Bishops Term Calendar 2015

This has now been finalised and is attached for your information.

Second Term 2014

Next term provides several challenges and is a very disruptive one. All parents are aware that we return to school for 9 academic days and then have the Easter Weekend. After this we return for 4 academic days and then have a break from Saturday, 26th April until Sunday, 4th May. Please note that the boarding houses will be closed during these holiday periods. We would understand that if parents of long distance boarders are not able to make alternative arrangements and because of the costs of flights, they may keep their son/s at home between these two holidays, ie from 22nd to 25th April. Please liaise with the House Director in this regard.

Election Day: 7th May

This has been declared a Public Holiday. The Pre-Prep and Prep Schools will be closed on this day. Because of the disruption to our academic programme at the College we will run a special academic programme on Election Day finishing school at 2pm. This will allow the boys and staff who are eligible to vote to do so after 2pm. There will be junior sport until 3:30pm and no other activities scheduled after that.

Yours sincerely


Guy Pearson
