HOLY ROSARY NEWSLETTER
Term 2 Week 8 Friday 17June
A great week for sport. Yesterday’s Year 6 Winter Carnival was really successful. A lot of schools were involved and all of our teams gave a very good account of themselves. They are to be congratulated.
Thank you to the thirty plus parents who joined our Pre-primary children at mass this morning and being part of our faith life. It was great that you could come along! Father Peter makes everyone very welcome which we so appreciate.
If you’d like to join Tuesday’s P&F meeting online please let Michèle know by noon on Monday. Otherwise see you at 6pm in the staff room.
Musically a big week next week with the Musica Viva concerts taking place on Wednesday, which celebrate Michelle Kirwan’s music programme. These will be great events. Please check out the details in this newsletter.
And next Friday sees our Faction Cross-Country around Jackadder for our Years 3-6 children take place. We look forward to seeing many of you there. This is a really popular event!
Have a great weekend
