FROM GEORDIE:

Well as a very wet and windy week comes to a close I hope that everyone has some nice relaxing plans for the weekend. If you are planning a trip away, have a great time and enjoy the relaxed restrictions. I am really looking forward to being able to go out for a nice meal and glass of red, hopefully in front of an open fire. Fingers crossed!


I would like to thank everyone for their patience and jovial attitude in the drive through! There has been damp shoes and frizzy hair, but plenty of laughs as well. At this stage I have not heard that anything is going to change, however, as soon as I do I will let you know. From Tuesday we will organise for a teacher to be on duty in the undercover area from 8.15am to help families with older students (Yr 1-6) who need to drop off a bit earlier. These students will need to enter from the Angelico St gate or Upper Williamstown Rd gate and go to the undercover area where there will be supervision. The drive-through will continue to operate from 8.30am.


As I mentioned last week, our teachers are currently preparing the Semester 1 reports. Where required, teachers may request a meeting over the phone to discuss student progress and we welcome parents to do the same.


Finally, as some of you may be aware we have had some very sad news here at Holy Rosary as one of our mothers, Alisanne Ride, passed away last week after battling illness. Alisanne and Lucas have two girls, Arianne in Kindy and Alize in Year 1. Alize and Arianne have been at school this week and I am happy to report that the support they have received from their teachers and peers has been beautiful to watch. They are strong, lively young ladies and we will all continue to support the family in the coming weeks, months and years ahead.


Hoping everyone has a relaxing and safe long weekend and comes back refreshed for a great week!

LIBRARY NEWS

What a week it has been acknowledging Reconciliation Week and celebrating National Simultaneous Storytime. Holy Rosary participated along with over 1 million Australian children reading about those hilarious chooks Britney and Whitney and their night time adventures. Library has been running so smoothly and I am so impressed with how the students have adapted to the new guidelines – we are having a really great time! Enjoy the long weekend -it looks like perfect book reading weather!
