What's Happening at Holy Rosary
Week 9, Term 4 2021
I would like to thank families for your support and understanding during the past few days. Our number one priority at Holy Rosary is the safety of our students and we will ensure we continue to follow directives and advice from the Public Health Unit and Department of Health. We have also been very fortunate to have the support of our Catholic Education Sandhurst team. We are certainly endeavouring to maintain communication and I thank families for their understanding. We will have a meeting this evening and hope to further update everyone at the conclusion of the meeting.
We have completed our staffing for next year, with only a few positions to fill. Next Tuesday 7th December we hope to have our 2022 Foundation children join us and their teachers for an orientation day morning. The Grade 6 children will be off at their high schools and during the day 12.00pm - 1.00pm all children will move to their 2022 classroom. In light of the current situation we will update everyone should this situation change.

Our recent experience of COVID within the school has highlighted the need for ongoing vigilance and care. We urge families to keep children home who may exhibit symptoms, even in the mildest form and to get a PCR test done. We ask that you please keep any siblings home also until a negative test result is received.
Again, thank you everyone for the messages of support and care we certainly appreciate them. Please feel free to email or phone should anyone have specific questions. We hope to be able to provide an answer as soon as practical.
Please note, our Pastoral Care Sausage Sizzle scheduled for Wednesday 1st December has been cancelled. Any students that had placed orders will now need to bring lunch. All monies will be refunded and sent back home with students this week.
Take care, stay safe.
