ACHIEVEMENTS REWARDED

The four athletes enrolled in the Elite Athlete Program received recognition for their hard work at a small presentation this morning. They have all adapted exceptionally well during these times and are now looking forward to when they can return to their normal training sessions!

WHAT WE’VE LEARNED

We were excited to welcome our youngest and oldest students back on campus this week. After lots of communication with parents and staff over recent weeks, Principal Donella Beare sat down with some students to hear about their different online learning experiences. Watch as they discuss what they’ve learned during this time, sharing their excitement to see their teachers and friends again!

IT’S LUNCHTIME!

Need some inspiration for today’s lunch? Mrs Herd shows us how to jazz up instant noodles by making stir-fry with ingredients you’ll have in your fridge and freezer.

Students please note: wash your hands before cooking and don’t forget to do the dishes!

Provident Lending and Business Solutions

Trent Carter from Provident Lending and Business Solutions is reaching out to business owners in the St Stephen’s School community who may require financial advice during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Specialising in cash flow advisory and funding options, Provident Solutions can discuss with business owners about what they are entitled to, how to scale a business back to survive and how business owners can pivot their business offering to look for different sources of income.

Provident Solutions are offering two specific services, and as a St Stephen’s parent, Alumni and member of the Business Directory, Trent is happy for the school community to access these services at a low price. Both sessions are offered remotely.

1. Stress test your cash flow – a 45-minute session where Provident Solutions use simple financial data to demonstrate the impact of decisions before they are made on profit and cash flow. This can be a very powerful tool to set priorities on what and when to cut expenses, especially when looking at staff. Usually $100 + GST, Provident are offering this service for $70 + GST for St Stephen’s School community members.

2. Survival sessions – a three-session advisory where Provident Solutions will:

a. Review the business up to the impact of COVID-19 to set base lines and trends. This includes the Stress Test.

b. Strategic planning – setting goals, plans and actions for the next 90 days to set up for survival and to potentially thrive in a new operating environment.

c. Cash flow budget and funding – ensuring business owners have an eye on the numbers moving forward and understand how to fund the plan.

Survival sessions are $250 each and can be run one-on-one or in groups of up to four people.
