HOLY ROSARY NEWSLETTER
Term 3 Week 5 Friday 20 August
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The invitation to look at things differently can make a difference to each of us.
What an assembly today! So many children were involved in our Performing Arts Assembly – our choir, our band, and a number of individual performances. It was a terrific celebration and very well received. Thank you to our Music teacher Michelle Kirwan, band master Lachie Darby and lead singing coach Kate O’Neill.
Thanks also to our P&F, in particular Lapathon co-ordinators Bec and Kara and their skilful management of the prize giving for the children was a sight to behold. The pledges indicate an outcome in the vicinity of $18 000 raised, including the 1500 contribution to Lifelink. This is remarkable and the community thanks you for your fantastic support of the initiatives being undertaken at the moment.
Next week is Book Week - yahoo! See you at the parade!
Have a great weekend

2021 Primary School Cross Country Championships
On August 12 the Holy Rosary Cross Country Squad attended the 2021 Primary School Cross Country Championships at UWA Sports Park.
We had a fabulous day and everyone tried their hardest gaining some impressive times including Baxter who came 18th and Keagan who came 16th, both qualifying for state running trials. With most races having around 300 competitors it was a fabulous experience for our children and was the perfect way to end the Cross Country session at the school.
A full list of results can be found by going to the web page listed below and clicking on the races in the results section.

We will now turn all of our attention to the Holy Rosary Athletics carnival on September 17. If there are any parents in Year 3 to 6 that would be willing to help out on the day can you please email me through administration. I would greatly appreciate the help.

TEACHER GET TO KNOW YOU - KAITY PASSMORE
When I look outside my office window, I see lots of Willy Wag tales playing in the bird bath. They’re my favourite type of bird too!
If you could join any past or current music group which would you want to join?
Honestly, I don’t think anyone would let me join their band… just ask Year One. But, if I could, it would be One Direction!
What celebrity would you like to meet for a cup of coffee?
Isla Fisher.. oh wait, I did that already.
Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?
I always loved seeing photos of my mum wearing oversized shoulder pad jackets… and they are now making a comeback! I love it!
What three items would you take with you on a deserted island?
My dog, chocolate and of course, Mrs Willett!
What's your favourite family tradition?
Christmas at my parents! It is the best day because my brothers and I get to eat lots and lots of seafood and enjoy many laughs together.
Do you love or hate roller coasters?
That’s a big no from me!
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Cruskits with avocado, vegemite, and fetta (you will thank me later)
What would you sing at Karaoke night?
You will always see me on the dance floor singing along to ‘all the small things’ Blink-182.
What makes you laugh the most?
Definitely not Mr D’ Aloia! But I’m very lucky to have some real comedians in Year One D.
To celebrate National Science Week 14-22 August we are offering a free online coding class for primary school students in Years 2 - 6 across Australia.
At Code Camp we are incredibly passionate about inspiring kids to develop their tech skills now in order to prepare for the future, teaching them to be creators of technology, not just consumers.
Our 1-2 hour lesson introduces the key basics of drag & drop coding via a fun and engaging Super Slimer game and can be completed any time this term.
It's a fantastic addition to your existing STEM learning program.
We know flexibility is key, so kids are welcome to do it at any time and we have our coding tutors LIVE to support them from 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm AEST weekdays.
BOOK WEEK 2021
Next week is Book Week! The theme this year is Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds and our famous parade will be held on Friday 27th August, on the courts or in the gym, weather dependant. Children are encouraged to dress as their favourite book character using things that they already have at home. Classes are busily working on their art for the library which will be judged by our very own Sr Eileen, with prizes being awarded at the Parade assembly. Parents are welcome to view the art in the library after the parade. The Library Monitors and I can’t wait to see you for what is always a really fun morning!
