Dear Parents and Guardians

Welcome back to Holy Rosary! We trust that you and the children have had a great break and are ready to get stuck in to another solid, substantial and enjoyable term. The calendar has been updated and can be found HERE. You will see that plenty of forward planning has been done to include photos, school and class masses, Confirmation, assemblies, chess competition, swimming carnival, Book Fair, NAPLAN, ANZAC Day – quite a list! Arrangements sometimes do have to change, and if that is the case we will inform you as soon as we know.

Welcome to Tomas Macri and Owen Norgrove and their families who join us this term! We are so pleased that you have joined the Holy Rosary community.

We also welcome out student teachers from Edith Cowan and Notre Dame Universities. We trust that you will lean a lot and enjoy yourselves at the same time.

With photos completed, and with a lovely ANZAC ceremony today, we have commenced the term as we intend to proceed – in an organized and enjoyable way.

Here’s to a great term ahead.
