What's Happening at Holy Rosary
Week 5, Term 2 2021
This coming Sunday is Pentecost Sunday, the beginning of the church year and once again a significant day in the faith lives of the children and their families who have been preparing for the sacrament of Confirmation. Our Parish will join with the families to celebrate as Bishop Shane confers the Sacrament of Confirmation on 23 children on Saturday night and Sunday morning. This will conclude the preparation for all families but will be another step forward in the children's faith journey. Thanks in advance to Mrs Thurley and the staff for their commitment to the program and to all the families for joining with us to ensure the children are prepared and ready for the special day. We also thank Fr Minh for his support and Bishop Shane for his significant part in the day. We ask that everyone keeps the children and their families in your prayers during this time.
This week we celebrate our school as we enter the formal enrolment period. It is a great opportunity to reflect on the special things that make our school a great place to learn and grow. The Grade 6 leaders always do a great job of conducting tours and take great pride in sharing their understanding and knowledge of our school. Our Information Night will be held on Wednesday at 7.00pm in the Rosarium and we ask everyone to spread the word that enrolments for 2022 are open. We have plenty of room and look forward to welcoming new and existing families beginning their education journey in 2022.
Grade 4 headed off to Maldon Blue Light Camp, for their first experience of school camp today. The opportunity to work together away from the school environment is invaluable, creating opportunities for independence and building individual resilience. The children participate in bike riding and bush walking
as well as many other activities away from screens! We look forward to their return and thank the staff especially Mr Scott and Miss Gillett for the organisation and their time away from family during the one night away.
Mrs Goodbody has been away on Long Service Leave, however during this time she received the news that she will need to have a major surgery. As such her leave will be extended indefinitely. Mrs Cass Beavis will take over the role sharing the Foundation class with Mrs Baber for the foreseeable future. Again we ask that, as a community we all keep Carolyn in our thoughts and prayers during a challenging time and look forward to her return.
Finally in other staff news, please keep Ms O'Sullivan and her familiy in your prayers as her father passed away after illness, last week. Jasmin will be away this week and we continue to keep her in our thoughts during such a sad time.
