Message From Miss Melanie

We are busily preparing for NAIDOC Week at the end of the term. We have some great activities planned including a morning tea and lunch. Information will be shared with families closer to the event.

This year we are entering a float in the Horizon Power Float Parade. Staff are organising the decorations and costumes for the students, if you would like to help with decorating please contact your child's classroom teacher. We are looking forward to having lots of fun during the parade, so families please come down and support us on Friday 30th June from 4pm.

Please use the link below to complete the climate survey about Holy Rosary School. The survey provides feedback about all aspects of the school and helps to guide us in future directions of the school. To protect your confidentiality the survey is completely anonymous.

Parent & Caregiver Survey

Once again I would like to thank our families for supporting attendance at school. Our school attendance percentage has risen drastically this first half of the year and across the school we have a percentage of close to 80% attendance. This is an AMAZING achievement and would not be able to happen without the support of our families. High attendance allows for lots of learning to take place and that is what we want so our students can achieve their life goals as they grow older.

The term is quickly coming to an end and lots will be happening over the coming weeks, our last assembly will be on Friday 23rd June with 3/4B presenting. We look forward to seeing families support this assembly from 1.45pm in the Multi-purpose Room.

Don't forget we have an Early Close tomorrow for our Parent/Teacher/Student interviews - please have students picked up from school at 12.00pm.

God Bless.

Miss Melanie
