What's Happening at Holy Rosary
Week 10, Term 1 2021
It is hard to believe we are entering the final week of Term 1! Looking back, it’s great to reflect on the many different things that make Holy Rosary a great place to be. The small hiccup of lockdown mid-term allowed us to reflect on the opportunity to be at school as we move forward. It has been great to see the Foundation students settle in and at the other end of the school, our Grade 6 children have certainly stepped up as leaders. We look forward to camps and excursions next term and building on these skills.
We were very happy and received great feedback around our earlier timing for learning conversations and will be again having our second round early in Term 2.
We will have a FULL DAY on Friday 23rd of April from 8.40 am - 4.00pm as well as an EVENING on Monday 26th of April from 3.40pm - 7.00pm.
Bookings will open today for next term and can be made via PAM for either an in person or a virtual meeting. Our Learning Conversations are an important part of the assessment and reporting policy at Holy Rosary. Please take the time to make a booking. The input of families is important to enhancing the educational partnership between home and school.
As we only take limited numbers for enrolment I need to make sure existing families are catered for first. If you have a child starting in Foundation next year, could you please contact the office and let us know so that we can put your child on our list. Enrolments for new families will begin at the start of Term 2, so spread the word and we look forward to welcoming them to our school.
TENNIS COURT DRIVE THROUGH
Our school drive through has worked really well, creating a safe place to drop off and pick up children as well as contributing to flow of traffic. Please remember to enter and exit through the cones, and move on rather than waiting for extended periods to support the flow of all traffic. The City of Greater Bendigo have complimented the introduction as they monitor parking and traffic and I thank everyone for their support in this area.
Angela Holdaway, our LOTE/STEM teacher, has successfully been appointed to the Discovery Centre as leader of the Early years program. After 7 years of service to Holy Rosary we wish her well in her future endeavours and thank Angela for her contribution to our school. We will be working through a process to find a replacement as soon as possible in the coming weeks.
Mrs Goodbody will be taking leave for the first 4 weeks of Term 2, and we wish her all the best for her well earned break. In her absence Mrs Cass Beavis will work with Mrs Baber to ensure continuity of education for the FBG class.
Our final day of Term is this Thursday with dismissal at 2.15pm (2.10 for buses). I wish everyone a safe and happy Easter, a time to spend with families and friends and celebrate the centre of our Catholic faith, the Resurrection of Jesus. Thank you to everyone for making Term 1 a really positive start to the year
