Term 1 Week 2 Newsletter

Dear Parents/caregivers,

I would again like to thank you for your support and commitment in assisting us to provide success focused learning for your child by sending them to school prepared to learn. We have had a very smooth start to the school year except a hiccup on Monday night when some unfortunate individuals caused extensive damage to our beautiful school. I would like to thank Paul Betambeau for immediately coming to our aid and securing the seven classrooms and the canteen.

Tomorrow we will be celebrating our new school year with a Mass at 8:15am. All parents and family members are invited to join in celebrating the new school year.

On Friday 11th of February, the Year 2 and 3 students will start swimming lessons. The lessons are being run by qualified instructors. The Year 2 and 3 students will have 5 days of lessons and the Year 4, 5 and 6 students will start their five lessons on Friday 18th of February. Please send your child to school prepared for this valuable program.

I am still extremely concerned regarding the contents of lunchboxes. Please do not send packaged food or food with high sugar content e.g. lollies, chocolate, biscuits, muesli bars, fruit boxes etc. Please refer to our Healthy Eating recommendations attached and in the Parent Handbook.

Our Lady Queen of the Holy Rosary Pray for Us
