LPFA Working Bee
Thank you to the parents and staff who attended the Working Bee last Saturday. The sun shone beautifully as gardens were prepared for Open Day and showbags put together for our Feeder School Visits. Everybody’s hard work concluded with a delicious lunch at Two Wolves Hub and provided a great opportunity for parents to catch up after a busy morning.
The next Working Bee is scheduled for Saturday, 27 July from 9.00am – 12.00pm and will once again conclude with lunch at 11.30am. Parents interested in attending the Working Bee should contact Monica Agius on 9433 0228 or email lpfa@loyola.vic.edu.au

Homestay Volunteers – Jesus Good Shepherd School, Philippines
We will be welcoming seven students from Jesus Good Shepherd School in the Philippines from 1- 15 September for a short-term cultural experience. For this program we will be looking for families to volunteer homestay accommodation for these students. The visiting students will shadow their host brother or sister at Loyola for the duration of the stay and host families may arrange outings for outside of school hours. These visits provide a rewarding, learning experience for both guests and families, offering opportunities to learn about and experience culture, language and friendship.
Interested families should see the flyer below and contact Monica Agius for more information on 9433 0228 or email community@loyola.vic.edu.au

This year’s Maytime Fair will be held on Saturday 4 May from 9.00am – 5.00pm.

Proceeds from this annual event support Jesuit Missions and every year, Loyola College happily participates in this wonderful day. We look forward to seeing many Loyola families at the Fair – which always proves a fun day for all. Thank you to the parents and students who have volunteered to run the stall.
