The funeral of our much loved teacher, Mr Paul Smith will be held at the Cowra Civic Centre on Friday
16 June at 1.30pm. As a sign of respect for the many years of dedicated service to the students of
Cowra High & the deep feelings of the school community, we will be attending his funeral as a school.
Students will be given the option of attending the service or staying at school where minimal supervision
will be provided. Students attending will be required to wear full school uniform. Periods 4 & 5 will not
run on this day and a brief lunch period will be held at 12.35pm. Those students attending the service
will then be transported by bus to the Civic Centre.
Due to the nature of funeral services and the time frames involved, I need to state that I cannot guarantee
students attending the funeral will be back at school in time to catch their normal buses home. We will
bus students back to school at the conclusion of the service but you may elect to have your child
dismissed from the Civic Centre. I ask that if you give permission for your child to attend, please make
arrangements for-him/her to get home in the event that the service prevents a return to school in time
to catch normal school buses.
I thank Cowra Bus Service who have donated the use of their buses on this occasion -their generosity
is very much appreciated.
