Dear Parents and Guardians,

Right, this time we welcome you back - on site! Things change in the blink of an eye. Better late than never. We are so pleased to be here and trust you were able to put a positive spin on the extra week.

Many new families are joining us this week across almost all grades, and we are delighted to welcome you. We look forward to an enjoyable year together!

We welcome our new staff, Katherine Berry in Year One, Ellie Luzuk in Year Two, Peter Scutti in Year Six and Chiara Mazzera who takes over Italian in the Junior Primary. We also welcome back Mike Thacker who is completing his final teaching practicum. We are delighted to welcome you to Holy Rosary!

Mr Darby (Year Five) will be on leave this term - he has become a Dad for the first time! We are delighted for Lachie and Jen on the arrival of baby Lucy. Please keep them in your prayers.

Mrs Rom Strack, well known to many of you will take over Lachie’s class.

Likewise Mrs Elena Capolingua is well known to our community and is taking over for the time being from Mr Pat Winton who is on extended leave.

Congratulations also to Lizzy and Peter Iacomella on the arrival of their baby girl, Florence, born January 8th.

Have a great weekend. Stay well, stay safe!

Mark de Kluyver
