HOLY ROSARY SCHOOL
NEWSLETTER | TERM 2 | WEEK 10 | 30 JUNE 2023
GOD DELIGHTS IN US
Here is the Good News: The God we most deeply want IS the God we actually have, and the god we fear is, in fact, the partial god we’ve settled for. God looks at us and is ecstatic. This God loves the sound of our voices and thinks that all of us are a magnificent work of art. “You’re here.” God’s cheek resting on ours. God’s singular agenda item.
Good news - hold that thought!
Thank you for a really enjoyable term this term. It has been solid and substantial!
Best wishes for a great holiday with your child/children. Have a wonderful time!

Student not returning in 2024
Online Uniform Orders
“The Perm-A-Pleat Schoolwear annual mid-year break commences on 8 July 2023.
Our office and warehouse will re-open on Monday 24 July 2023.
Orders placed by close of business on Wednesday 5 July will be despatched from Monday 24 July 2023.”
**Wet Weather Jackets**
Interest in the jackets has been far greater than anticipated and more jackets should be available the week commencing 24/7/23. Thank you for your understanding….
On that note, due to the popularity of the new jackets, together with the fact that they are lined, have a zip up hood, and that they are keeping children toasty warm, we will be 'retiring' the black sports jumpers. Children can still wear them for the time being, but they will come off the Uniform List.
I am chasing many overdue books at the close of Term 2. If you child has a lost, damaged or overdue book, can you please ensure that is returned or replaced by the beginning of term 3, so that they can continue to borrow. Thank you for your support of our library. Happy holidays.
