Holy Rosary School Derby
NEWSLETTER / TERM 1 / WEEK 4 / 21st February 2023
Message from Miss Melanie
We had a great day at our Pool Party and Pasta Day on Friday 17th February. The students enjoyed getting wet and having fun on the inflatables. Our pasta lunch was enjoyed along with a surprise Zooper Dooper to finish the meal. Thank you to the Staff for supervising and to all the students for such great behaviour on the day.
Families - we need your help please!!! We are asking for families to support us with the looking after of our chickens. If you could help by cleaning the pen out, feeding and watering once a term the chickens would definitely appreciate the attention. We would also love any lettuce scrap donations, as our chickens love lettuce leaves and it helps to keep their shells strong. We will also need for them to be looked after during the Easter school holidays if anyone can help. Please phone the school and let Miss Jenna know if you are able to help us out.
Don't forget we have two student free days on THURSDAY 2nd MARCH and FRIDAY 3rd MARCH. Staff will be travelling to Broome to participate in professional development, however, the office will be open during normal hours.
Monsignor Paul conducted a Commitment Mass on Sunday 19th February for the Holy Rosary Staff. He welcomed all the Staff to the Parish and the Staff shared a Commitment Prayer. He made a special mention to our new staff for 2023 - Miss Caroline, Miss Inge, Miss Rebecca and Mr Clinton.
Shrove Tuesday - the students enjoyed making pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. The tradition began as the last feast day before the 40 days of Lent began, where people fasted. The classes will be learning about Lent and the significance of Easter in the Liturgical calendar over the remainder of the term.
Sacraments - for any families who have children who are baptised Catholic and would like to participate in the Sacramental programs, please can you contact the office and let Miss Jenna know. There will be a Commitment Mass for all Sacramental Candidates on Sunday 14th May (Term 2) so we encourage any families to let us know as soon as possible so that we are able to start organising these special events.
Kindy to Yr1 will participate in a Water Fun day at school.
Friday Fun Day
