HOLY ROSARY NEWSLETTER
Term 3 Week 4 August 15 2019
Thanks very much to our Year Four gang who ran mass this morning. It was a lovely liturgy! Many of you were able to join us – thank you for doing so.
Tomorrow the last of our classes will be finished, with the hall another week away from completion. It is so good to see new life breathed in to our buildings.
Best wishes for a long long weekend with your children! Tomorrow our staff will be studying the history of St Dominic and the Dominican order. This will include attending 9am mass, and a visit to the convent behind our school to meet with the Sisters, and examine all of the schools with which they were started in WA, many of which no longer exist. By way of Christian service we will also spend much of the afternoon assisting our parish with a big clean up of the parish offices. It will be a great day!
See you on Tuesday.
Mark de Kluyver
