Term 3 Week 6 - 28 August 2020


Good afternoon all,

Another fun, exciting, sunny week here at Holy Rosary. I would like to congratulate our Year 3 class, Mrs Johnson and Mr D’Aloia for their AMAZING ZOO ASSEMBLY that was performed this morning, your rapping skills were exceptional. It was also great to have some of our parents attend up in the gym and the performance and awards should appear on SeeSaw soon.

A reminder that next Tuesday is our Parent / Teacher interviews and school closes at 12pm with the first interview at 12.30pm. It is a really big day for our staff so please help them to stick to the 10 minutes. If you have something to discuss that you think requires more time, feel free to book a time on another day after school. If you have forgotten to book a time you can see Michele in the office.

Well that is all from me today, I am off to play some footy with Year 1!

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Geordie Thuijs

  • Students will persist in asking for help if they feel unsafe

Year 1-3

  • Introduce the strategy of persistence

  • Students will understand they may not get the help they need the first time they ask

  • Students will develop an understanding of persistence and that they can persist in asking for help from their helping hand network adults if they feel scared or unsafe

Year 4-6

  • Introduce the strategy of persistence expectation

  • Students will understand what persistence is

  • Students will recognise that network people are not always available when required or the right person for the situation that requires help

There have been a few cases of Gastro at school recently, please see below for information from Health Department.

Gastroenteritis is a common and often highly infectious condition that affects your gut (the stomach and intestines). It is also known as ‘gastro’ and can cause vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach pain and nausea.

Infectious gastro can be spread very easily. You might get it from having contact with an infected person.

It’s important to stay home, away from school or childcare, until 48 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhoea.

Winter Sports

On Thursday August 20 the Year 6’s and some selected Year 5’s from Holy Rosary competed in a Winter Sports Carnival against Our Lady of Grace, Aranmore and St Kieran in football, netball and soccer at Kingsway Reserve.

The weather was fine and the competition fierce but fare across the board with all our teams having a fabulous day in their chosen sport.

I would like to thank Mr D’ Aloia, Nathan Butson, Abbey Tankard and Sue Harvey for training our soccer, football and netball teams. I would also like to thank our wonderful Year 6 teachers and staff that helped make the day a success, especially Mr Thuijs who was a magnificent football umpire.

All of your efforts made the day possible and gave our children some wonderful memories.

Next stop is our Athletics Carnival on September 18, so if you are able to help on the day I would love to hear from you.

An Invitation

Have you often thought about the big questions in life? Where you’re at in regard to your career, family and life? Consider coming and discussing it with others pondering the same, through ALPHA. ALPHA is a course that allows people to explore the big questions in life and discuss it in the context of Christianity. ALPHA, hosted by some of the parents of Holy Rosary School, is starting Tuesday nights from 1st September at Our Lady of the Rosary Parish (17 Angelico St, Woodlands), from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, including dinner(!).

Looking forward to seeing you there.

UFO Craft Group

Busy hands have been very creative with many rugs being completed, We have also had to seek new ways to get the finished items to those most in need. Cathy from St Vincent de Paul Migrant and Refugees came to our meeting on 26th Aug to tell us how many refugees are struggling in a new country with language, obtaining work and the daily needs of food and shelter. We were able to give her nine rugs with more in the pipeline. Seven of these which came from Carmel will warm and cheer the recipients. Another five knee rugs from Pam will be wrapped this week ready for a new home.

Another avenue we have established is Shop front which is a meeting place for the homeless.

So keep up the good work and we will find a placement for the item. We next meet on Wed 9th Sept in the Community Centre at 9.30 t0 11.30am

Mothers prayers

For the month of Sept we meet a Mavis Home 1.30-2.30pm with a cuppa to follow. See notice board for details.
