HOLY ROSARY SCHOOL
NEWSLETTER | TERM 1 | WEEK 8 | 24 MARCH 2023
NAPLAN is over for another year. However moving it to first term added quite a lot of complexity. Given it is going to remain in this term we will be reviewing how term one looks next year so that our children can get the most out of it.
Thank you to the parents who attended Tuesday’s Parents and Friends (P&F) meeting, and also the parents who attended the Holy Rosary Catholic Schools Advisory Council (CSAC) meeting following the P&F meeting. Your commitment and involvement on behalf of our community means a great deal. Please keep an eye out for information forthcoming from the meetings.
Big thank you to Rob Flexman for such a great swimming carnival today! This was a lot of fun. You may recall that last year, for covid reasons, swimming carnivals were scarce, but Rob found a way forward for our school, which was amazing. The learnings from last year are again evident this year, with use of the outside pool, and running the carnival in two sessions over the day being the more obvious ones. To the many, many parent volunteers, we are so grateful for your interest and support - it makes the carnival!
