What's Happening at Holy Rosary
Week 9, Term 4 2022
Sunday was the first Sunday in Advent which is also the first Sunday of the new liturgical year. The Advent season includes the four Sundays that precede Christmas. Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of the Lord. In this season, we recall two central elements of our faith: the final coming of the Lord in glory and the incarnation of the Lord in the birth of Jesus. The key themes of the Advent season are watchful waiting, preparation, and justice. It also reminds us that Christmas is just around the corner. Where did the year go?
During this season of Advent, we will be supporting the St Vincent De Paul charity. The Student Catholic Identity Leadership will be asking for a variety of donations specific to each year level. I hope you can support this charity who work hard to assist people in need and combat social injustice across Australia.
Our Junior classes will this week participate in our swimming program. With a specific focus on water safety and awareness, the program is one part of children learning to swim and it remains very important to participate in other external lessons to ensure the best possible opportunity to be competent and safe around water. Our Foundation – Grade 2 classes will be swimming at Gurri Wanyarra and look forward to a fun educational week.
Next week we will be having Orientation day on Tuesday 6th December when the children will have an opportunity to spend an hour in their classroom groupings for 2023 with their new teachers. All staffing will be completed this week in time for Orientation day. We will also welcome next year's Foundation children and say good luck to the Grade 6's as they spend time at their secondary school. We look forward to a great day for all.
