What's Happening at Holy Rosary
Week 3, Term 2 2021
Mother’s Day will be celebrated this coming Sunday, a time when we celebrate the special part Mothers and Grandmothers play in all our lives. Mothers are the sweetest gift from God to us. There is no way we can ever really thank our Mothers for all they do for us, nevertheless we must make it a habit to keep reminding ourselves of the various sacrifices they make and the abundant and limitless love our Mothers give us. On behalf of the school, I take this opportunity to wish all the Mother’s and Grandma’s of the school a Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you have a very enjoyable and relaxing day and that you receive all of the love and spoils you deserve.
The children will be making gifts at school today. Thanks to Amy Crennan for organising this again. Tomorrow we invite all Mums and Grandmothers to have a coffee and muffin on us. You are invited into the school where a coffee van will make up you order and muffins will be available from the canteen between 8.30 and 9.30am.
Our Sacramental Program for both Communion and Confirmation is in full swing. It was great to see the children and families attending the commitment mass on the weekend as the special day in their faith lives comes closer. We ask that you keep all children preparing for the sacraments and their families in your prayers at this special time.
Enrolment for 2022 has officially opened and we ask that families spread the word. We look forward to welcoming our next group of Foundation students and their families. Our Grade 6 leaders look forward to providing tours and highlighting the things that make them proud to be a part of the Holy Rosary community.
Grade 6 are off to Camp Wilkin (Anglesea) this Wednesday to Friday and we look forward to continuing to build leadership skills and enjoy the time away together. After missing all camps last year, we are certainly looking forward to heading away together. A special thanks to the staff attending for taking time away from their families to ensure the experience is the best possible one for all of us.
Thanks to Mr Coates and Miss Furlong for their fantastic organisation of this year's cross country events. Thanks also to staff and students for ensuring the day was a great success. It was wonderful to witness so many parents back to see the children participate at both the junior event and the senior event. Well done to those that won their age group, but most importantly well done to everyone who had a go. Harte house won the day by a total of 5 points so every participant counts.
