STAFFING UPDATE #2
After more than 34 years as a teacher at Holy Rosary including 20 in our Siena Centre (she also went to school here!), Deb Tanham is retiring! Deb’s last day will be July 27. Deb has decided to get the golf clubs out a little more often and perfect her already very handy swing.
Deb has spent many great years in mainstream classes and more recently in the Siena Centre where her end of year concerts have always been legendary and her Friday cooking lessons have left our mouths watering. We are sad to see her go but wish her all the best for a relaxing and happy retirement.
Mrs Liz Laverock, currently teaching one of our Year Five classes will take over Deb’s role commencing next term. We welcome Mrs Lauren Boland who will be joining us and taking over Liz’ role in Year Five.
Aleanna Brennan, currently Assistant Principal at Holy Spirit City Beach, will join us as our other Assistant Principal commencing 2019.
If any young people are interested in becoming Altar Servers, please contact Fr Chinh on 0411 381 334 or on his email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Fr Chinh will provide the necessary training to ensure the candidates feel confident in carrying out this role.
Congratulations to our Round Fourteen winners:
1st: Jack Borgas
2nd: Adam Monzu
Equal 3rd: Oliver Dimattina, Joseph Dimattina, Riley Taylor
Huge congratulations to Felix Sanchez who won the Holy Rosary Junior Chess Tournament today. Felix and Anthony Bogos played an impressive game of chess and all spectators were impressed with their skill and sportsmanship. Well done to you both. Congratulations to our third place champion Antonio Tassone as well as to Stella Ferguson who also played an outstanding game. I can’t wait to see where your Chess takes you next year. Many thanks to our incredible volunteer chess umpires whose knowledge and kindness have been crucial throughout the tournament. Have the most wonderful holidays and see you next term for the Senior Chess Tournament.
