Dear Parents/Guardians

If you were at mass on Saturday night you would have witnessed the good will, kindness and good humour, together with the reverence shown by the children who received the Sacrament of Confirmation, as well as their guardians and families. It was a very special evening. Father Peter made everyone most welcome.

The Musica Viva concerts on Wednesday were outstanding. They mark the culmination of the Music Programme taught by Michelle Kirwan. The musicians were exceptional as was the engagement of our children.

Congratulations to our Pre Primary Catherine Gang who did an awesome job of sharing their gifts with us this morning – you were amazing! What a great assembly.

We hope to see you at next week’s assembly led by our Year One Catherine Team. We look

forward to it!

Have a great weekend.

Mark de Kluyver

Staffing Update

Mr David Edwards in Year 4 Dominic will be taking Long Service Leave for Terms 3 & 4 this year. We wish David all the best on his well-deserved leave.

I am pleased to inform you that Miss Claire Wilson will be taking over from David for the rest of the year. Claire is very excited at the opportunity to teach and support the Year 4 Dominic students. Claire will be spending some time with David this term to ensure a comprehensive handover.


Over the weekend our Year 6 children undertook the Sacrament of Confirmation. We thank Kaye from the Parish and our teachers for preparing the children, Father Peter for engaging us all so beautifully in the Mass, and for all the families, sponsors, parishioners, teachers and friends who came along to support the children.

Tuesday’s weather was lousy. Dropping children off in the morning can be time consuming, but this act of double parking, compromising access and potentially damaging our reticulation is not acceptable. The rules are for everyone. Please use the Drive Through in front of the hall, or park properly!

What a fantastic time we have had with our Musica Viva Concerts this week!

All the students at Holy Rosary were a part of the audience. The concerts were the culmination of a 10-week programme of work, giving the students opportunity to learn and experience the music and see instruments of the early Baroque period.

The concerts were presented as a musical and this gave our students a very different experience to how a musical can be presented, and as the musical was loosely based on Leonardo Da Vinci’s inventions, we have also studied the life and works of Da Vinci.

Feedback of the performance from teachers and students has been very positive. The performers too thanked the Holy Rosary students for their fantastic concert etiquette and for being so engaged with the performance. Well Done Everyone.

The Junior Chess Tournament is running at top speed with quarter finals next week. Our third group of year 5 Book Clubbers are enjoying catching up at recess to discover Felix’s latest adventures in “Once” and our previous Book Club groups are enjoying reading on through the series. Excitement is building for Book Week which will be held in week 5, term 3, 19-23rd August. This year the theme is ‘Reading is my Secret Power’ and we agree one of the best powers books give us, is the ability to relax. This weather is the best for reading! Have a great weekend,

Mrs Butson
