Library

Each class visits the library once a week, in this session they are given the opportunity to read and borrow books.
The library is also open some mornings and at lunchtime once a week for children to use.

The Arts

The Arts are a means of expression and communication common to all societies. Our goals are to provide experiences and opportunities for children to enjoy and engage in artistic expression.
At Holy Rosary we focus on two areas:

  • Performing Arts – music, drama and dance
  • Visual Arts & Media Arts

A voluntary school choir is formed for specific events and performs at school and community functions.

Pastoral Care

Our school is proud of the strong sense of community which exists and in continuing to develop this we have an active Pastoral Care Team. Our Pastoral Care approach is to offer assistance and support for families when needed. This may be part of the usual day to day family life or in acknowledging difficult times or events where a friendly face, offer of a family meal or other help as may be required.
