Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Yesterday we celebrated Founder’s Day with a variety of activities. Founder’s Day is to celebrate the St John of God Sisters who started Holy Rosary School in 1954. The day started with a beautiful liturgy in the undercover area. We had some of our old foundation students and our first lay principal, Tony Treacy, talk to the students about what Holy Rosary was like in the old days. I would like to thank Miss Jocelyn, Miss Alis and the Aboriginal Teaching Assistants for their wonderful organization of a great day of celebration.

Last Friday we held a very successful Faction Swimming Carnival. All the students who attended and participated were winners. The swimming faction winner was La Salle followed by Johns and Pallotti. Congratulations to all the individual champions and runner up champions. Thanks to the staff and especially Mr Kayde for a well organised, well run fun day.

I would like to remind everyone about our Busy Bee on Saturday 26th March from 8:00am – 11:00am to set up our Community Garden and clean up the school grounds. Please bring along gardening tools and wheelbarrows. It will be followed by a sausage sizzle.

Next Thursday 17th March we will be celebrating St Patrick’s Day with a fundraiser for Caritas. More information will be coming home in the near future.


Our Lady, Queen of the Holy Rosary Pray for Us
