Hi Everyone,

Welcome back campers! Thanks to the efforts and planning of Nikita Rees and Peter Scutti, supported by a number of our other staff, camp 2023 has been a wonderful experience for them. This occasion provides children with many opportunities to learn about themselves and one another, to grow and enjoy one another’s company, to be challenged and to try new and different things. In all, this is a rich mix of opportunities, making memories to be shared all year. It is a special time and I thank everybody who has embraced camp and supported our children on their journey.

There is plenty on next week - NAPLAN finishes, our Student Leaders attend the GRIP leadership conference, our Swimming Carnival is on Friday, and our School Audit takes place on Thursday and Friday.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Change of dates for School Photos

Due to a very busy end of term and so that students are wearing their winter uniform, we have been able to re-schedule the date of the School Photos to Monday 8 May and Tuesday 9 May - Week 3, Term Two.

Parent/Teacher Interviews

The Holy Rosary Parent/Teacher interviews will be held on Tuesday 4 April. Our Specialist Teachers are also available for interviews. School will close at 12pm and children will need to be collected at this time so that teachers can have a short lunch break. Interviews will begin at 12.30pm. Just a reminder the interview appointment slots go for 10 minutes so please ensure you arrive on time.

The booking link will close on Friday 31st March at 3pm.

Please click the link below to book your appointment.


Parking #3

A reminder where to park. Please check the map below. We are getting some flak on some parking practices alleged to have happened, in particular:

From one of our churchgoers:

  • people using the angled parking bays in front of the Church. A number of regulars, some elderly, come early to Church to recite the rosary, and park there. Please leave these bays clear.

From a resident of Huntriss Road:

  • Parking on verge where it is clearly signed to not do that

  • Parking in the no standing spots where it is clearly marked

  • Parking in the bus zones (I saw the bus driver of the 412 stop his bus this morning in the middle of the road to let out kids and then go write offenders a ticket)

These rules are for kid’s safety and the free, safe and unimpeded passage of road users. I have also informed the Stirling council of my concerns. I hope they conduct a fine blitz to reinforce your anticipated communication to these drivers.

I don’t think any of us can argue with any of these points. There is plenty of parking available around school as evidenced by the map and we ask everybody to be mindful and honour the expectations we have.

Thank you for your support.

Happy St Patrick’s day! The green books are out, and Irish tunes and landscapes set the scene in the library this week. Students watched brilliant videos made by our year 6 Pastoral Care Group on ‘How to make a paper plane” in preparation for our lunchtime plane fun in week 9. Round 1 of Junior Chess is now complete, with all winners progressing to round 2 over the next couple of weeks. I will try my best to accommodate students who are sick and miss their game. Thank you for letting me know and staying home if you are unwell.

In week 9, we will hold our annual Project Compassion Second Hand Book Sale. If you have any books to donate, please hang on to them and see the newsletter next week for more info. I hope the year 6’s enjoyed camp, I really missed my Library Monitors this week!

You can drop any donations to your child’s classroom by next Thursday 23rd March, week 8. Thank you for your support.

A reminder about the amazing eSafety parent resource to support you on your technological parenting journey. With technology becoming a bigger part of our outside of school world, this resource is a great tool that is always up to date. As an educator and parent I find it very handy!
