What's Happening at Holy Rosary
Week 4, Term 3 2022
We are in the process of developing our strategic plan for 2023-25 and invite parents to our community consultation in the Rosarium at 6.30pm tomorrow night, Tuesday 2nd August. I look forward to going through the thoughts behind a strategic plan and engaging in some brainstorming activities as we move forward with our project.
This week we began our 2023 Foundation interviews and look forward to meeting with new and existing families of children beginning their primary school education next year.
The beginning of term has been filled with lots of training and practice for the Athletics sports this Thursday. We are very excited to be able to have a fun day of competition at the Athletics track in Retreat road. Again, a reminder that the specific photography and filming policy for the Diocese and school will need to be adhered to as outlined in the newsletter over the past 4 weeks. Thanks to all staff, particularly Mr Coates and Mrs Taylor who have planned and prepared for the day.
Like many schools and workplaces, we continue to be impacted by cases of COVID, either directly to staff or students and other family members. In addition, other illnesses have also presented and we ask that children who are unwell remain at home.
As per the Chief Health Officer we encourage the use of masks, and ask that families provide a mask for your child should you want them to wear one. Please note, that children over the age of 8 years, must wear a mask on any public transport, this includes our school bus and buses to and from excursions.
Thank you to the families who diligently maintain their testing regime and have reported any positive cases to the school.
I am able to update everyone that the COLA (Covered Outdoor Learning Area) was completed on Friday with clean up starting today. We will hopefully receive a certificate of occupancy this week. There have certainly been some issues around the storm water which have slowed the progress substantially and continued to add frustration. The surface is expected to be cleaned and gates open for Parish and school use next week.
Our administration building is also nearing completion and we hope to move in over the next fortnight, possibly three weeks, this will be reliant on defect checks and again a certificate of occupancy.
