COVID CANCELLED: Canterbury Father’s Day Breakfast

Dear All (especially the Dads),

Unfortunately, due to ongoing strict COVID campus visitor restrictions, strong crowd limits and mandatory mask-wearing protocols, our Canterbury Father’s Day Breakfast scheduled for Thursday morning 2 September 2021 has been cancelled for this year.

With current COVID State Government Health Directives possibly being extended beyond next week, to send mass invitations, then host this major event with full breakfast food and beverage catering – for an expected 300-400 guests, is simply proving too perilous and prone to be cancelled closer to the event date.

So it’s better to be decisive and cancel now, so we can properly plan other ‘real world’ industry experience and assessment for our Canterbury Hospitality students, and avoid the impossible situation of deciding which 20 or 50 fathers could actually come on campus and who couldn’t, when we really want all our dedicated fathers to enjoy this event with us and their children.

Let’s hope for better COVID-free luck next year, and at least we got through our big Canterbury Mother’s Day Breakfast back on Friday 7 May…

Chalk one up for the mums!
