Newsletter Weeks 7 & 8 Term 3

Virtue of the fortnight : Kindness 

Our virtue focus this fortnight has been kindness. We have spoken to the children about showing kindness in little ways, saying hello and using people’s names, letting others go first in line, and standing up for people if they are being bullied. Jesus taught us kindness in his actions. He raised children from the dead out of pity for their parents, and welcomed disciples from all walks of life, even after others had rejected them. Most important of all, he gave up his life so all of us can be saved. 

Interschool athletics 

All our Holy Rosary virtues were on display when our students represented the school at the Interschool athletics carnival on Friday. 

They did an amazing job and like every year they put up a big fight against schools which are about 5x bigger than ours! Even when they knew they were being beaten these kids showed such amazing perserverance, resilience and sportsmanship, which is what Holy Rosary kids are all about. Despite the tough competition, Corbin in Year 3 received runner up champion boy and Lanton was overall Champion boy for Year 1, and broke a 7 year record from 2013 with his 50m time of 8.34 seconds!! Big thank you to Mr Kayde , Miss Teki and Miss Alis and well done to all our interschool champions for representing our school so well.  

Book week and book fair 

Big thank you to Miss Natalie who organised our Book Week this year with the fantastic book Fair, which puts money back into the school for our kids. Our Dads Reading Challenge was a great success too with 13 dads turning up to read and we hope we can beat that record next year!
