HOLY ROSARY NEWSLETTER
Term 3 Week 5 August 23 2019
This reflection on ‘the way’ gives cause for hope and optimism. I hope you like it.
Today’s Book Week Parade was a hoot! Holly has pulled it off again. Parents and guardians with your support this has been another memorable and hugely enjoyable day at Holy Rosary. Thank you so much!
Our Year Five students are attending Mass on Thursday at 9am. We invite you to join them, and stay for coffee afterwards. And on Friday Pre Primary Dominic are strutting their stuff. Again, we hope to see you there!
Have a great weekend.

STATE PER CAPITA AUDIT SEPTEMBER 10
Our school has been selected for an audit by the state government. This includes ensuring all student absences for this term are accounted for, and for that we need your help. The vast majority of absences are covered, but if you have received notification that an absence or absences for your child/children are not covered by a note, please help us by completing the documentation and returning it to us. It is important as it does affect funding. Thanks for your support.

National Science Week - Mission to the Moon
Last week was science week with the theme being Mission to the Moon.
The children all enjoyed looking at videos of the moon landing and learned about satellites and saw some pictures on the earth observatory page from Nasa. They even had a picture from Australia on there!
Children from Years PP - Yr 2 made rockets they tried to launch to the moon.
Year 3 and 4 designed a lunar rover and Years 5 and 6 designed a space probe. Their work can be seen on their See Saw site.
Here are some classes enjoying their activity:
