What's Happening at Holy Rosary
Week 1, Term 4 2022
Welcome back to our final Term for 2022. We look forward to an exciting and very busy Term of hard work and fun. I hope everyone had a great break and most people would understand I had a wonderful break with the result of the AFL football making it even better! The Cats win was certainly something I was able to enjoy with my family and we were all very excited by the performance.
The game also highlighted the leadership of Joel Selwood, a Bendigo boy who captained the team and certainly showed that leadership is about not only the game but being a good person. I am sure everyone would agree when we reflect on our 'Leaders for Tomorrow' identity statement, Joel embodied all that we would hope that our children can be, not just talented, but good people who consider others at the same time.
Our Term begins with the 'Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary' - our school and Parish feast day. We have sent home invitations for grandparents and special friends to join us after Mass in the classrooms for some special time with the children. It is an exciting and special day particularly as we have been unable to celebrate for the last two years. We look forward to seeing a number of people at school sharing the day with the children and again re-connecting with the school.
Our Learning Conversations are scheduled for next week and we encourage all families to make an appointment to discuss your child's progress and set goals for the final Term of the year. Our Grade 3 and Grade 5 families will have the opportunity to collect and review the NAPLAN tests conducted earlier in the year.
We are also about to begin planning for the 2023 school year and ask that parents who may have requests regarding class placement, please put your request in writing to myself and I will share these with the teachers before the end of October.
In staffing news, we welcome Mr Udale-Gordon to the staff for Term 4. He will be teaching the Grade 1ML class.
