Holy Rosary School Derby
NEWSLETTER / TERM 3/ WEEK 10/ 20th September 2023
Message From Miss Melanie
What a fabulous term we have had, with lots of great activities, excursions and learning. Thank you to all of our families for supporting us through encouraging your children to attend school everyday - without you we could not be achieving all the great things we are in the classroom.
I would like to inform the school community that Mr Clinton has resigned from his position at school and will not be returning in Term 4. We wish him all the best for his future endeavours and thank him for his service over the past three terms. Miss Lucy and Miss Gemma (welcome back) will be taking up teaching roles in Term 4.
We have changed our bell times at school and also our start time from the beginning of next term. We will be starting our school day at 7.50am (instead of 7.55am) so we ask that all students be ready to start school at the new time. We have also extended recess play time to 20 minutes and reduced the lunch time eat break to 10 minutes. We hope these changes will benefit the students through a better play break in the morning and as most students have finished eating after 10 minutes we have reduced the time (allows for more play time at recess).
We wish all our families a safe and relaxing break from school and look forward to seeing you all back on Monday 9th October.

Congratulations to Dennis, Daniel and Coco who celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday 10th September. Monsignor Paul officiated on the day. Thank you to Miss Bec, Miss Kylie and Miss Jocelyn for preparing the candidates for this very important occasion. We shared a wonderful morning tea with the families and the parish after the mass.
If you would like your child to be baptised and participate in the Sacramental program and you are not Catholic in 2024, please give your name to Miss Jenna.
Congratulations to our team who finished 6th place- big improvement from last year where we finished 8th. We are so proud of everyone's efforts to do their best on the day and the 'can do' attitude by all competitors.
Individual congratulations go to:
- Maleik-Year 2 equal Champion Boy

Maleik also set a new record for the Year 2 Boys 100m.
