SCHOOL PHOTO SURVEY
Thanks to everyone who took the time to fill in the survey about the new photo company, MSP Photography. The feedback given was overwhelmingly positive as can be seen from the graph below, with 86 out of 109 people rating 7 or above. I have collated all the comments and will forward them onto MSP for them to consider in the future.

Disco: The children had a brilliant night at last week’s school discos. It’s a big team effort: thank you Michelle Della Franca for arranging; Brother Stephen and the Year 6 DJs; and the many parents who helped out.
The disco raised $1,300 which will go towards rolling out the contemporary classrooms project throughout the school.
Holy Rosary Netball Club: Our Holy Rosary Netball Club is run by – you guessed it – Holy Rosary parents! We have had a fantastic start to the season, all made possible by a big community effort of parents and players.
This year we have:
8 team managers
7 committee helpers (many hands make light work)
1 awesome president (thanks Megan Boekhoorn!)
We are very fortunate to have fantastic netball facilities at Holy Rosary – the courts were resurfaced by our parent community (P&F funds).
Siena Centre Wine Fundraiser
Thank you to all the families who supported the Sienna Centre fundraiser – it raised close to $1,000! This will help to purchase important resources for the children.

What's happening with all the chairs and desks next to Sports Shed?
All the furniture was in classrooms that have now been re-imagined as 21st Century learning spaces. We have recently sourced a group of volunteers who collect furniture like ours and use it to furnish schools in East Timor. When their next container is ready to be filled, they will collect our furniture.
The furniture will really be well used over there. At this time there are still children in schools in East Timor who sit on the ground and rest the sheet of paper against the back of the child in front of them in order to be able to write. They really are looking forward to receiving our furniture.
