What's Happening at Holy Rosary
Term 3 again promises to be a very exciting and busy one as we continue to work and grow together. The conclusion to Term 2 saw the finalising of Prep 2018 enrolments and this Term we will be interviewing and working with our next group of children and their parents.
Firstly, we welcome Mr Jarrod Epps who is now teaching the Grade 1AH class and we look forward to working with him for the remainder of the year.
Our athletics carnival will be held on Wednesday in the third week of Term and we look forward to a fun filled day. The children have been training since the end of Term 2 and we look forward to personal bests and some great performances.
Cyber Safety is another important aspect of school life in this day and age. We look forward to Mr Grant Fitzgerald also presenting a child and parent session early in Term 3. Grant works at the Catholic Education Office Sandhurst and specialises in computers and general technologies.
Term 3 will also be a special time for many of our Grade 2 children as they prepare for and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Sacramental program continues to be an important part of our links to Parish and the children's faith journey. We ask that everyone keeps the children and their families in their prayers during this time.
Our senior Grade 6 children will join with all Grade 6 children across the Diocese in Shepparton for the 'Stronger Youth Rally'. As part of our leadership program this day is integral to our call to service and to lead. The day, led by Fr Rob Galea, will give the children a framework upon which they can build and develop as leaders of our school and in the broader community.
The Grade 5 camp will certainly be a great opportunity for the children to learn and work together in a new environment and is always a highlight for the children and staff who attend. This year we will head away on August 6th - 7th for a great camping experience at Billabong Ranch near Echuca.
Finally, the partnership between school and home is the most important part of a child's learning. As such we look forward to working with you to develop and guide each child to reach their potential as 'Leaders for Tomorrow'. We will continue to have Parent Teacher Interview opportunities each term, I encourage parents and caregivers to contact teachers if they are unsure and celebrate the success and challenges along the way.
