This was a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate our Kindergarten program, Early Years space and what we are working on together. Thank you to Mrs Gemma Bennett and Mrs Libby Peisse and our Early Years staff for their preparation for this visit and their willingness to show and demonstrate our exemplary practices.
This week we farewell and thank Mrs Natalie Cockburn who is commencing Maternity leave. We wish Natalie, her husband James and family all the very best as they welcome a new family member. We welcome Miss Rachel French who will be teaching in Grade 4CL on Monday and Tuesday in Term 4 while Mrs Renee Ludwig will be in Grade 4CL on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
I wish all our families and staff a restful two-week break and look forward to welcoming you all back in Term 4 on Monday 14th October. The first week will be a busy one with celebrations for Holy Rosary Week including Grandparents and Special Persons Day on Thursday 17th October and the Grade 3 to 6 Athletics Carnival on Friday 18th October.
On Sunday 15th September 6 students from Holy Rosary Catholic School made their First Holy Communion. It was a wonderful Parish and school celebration and I would like to thank Jenny and Phillip from the Parish for their preparation of our students, the parents who supported through their attendance at our Sacramental Camps and Father Suresh for his prayerful and positive support always.

Thank you to all for your support of our School Disco on Friday. Special thanks to Karen Rossendell and Belinda McCreghan for their organisation, Marcia and Justin Pegg our brilliant DJ's, Scott Jones our bubble machine expert and all the parents for their supervision and help. We raised an amazing $1760.00 from the door and glow sticks sales. All the students had a wonderful time. What a wonderful school community event.
In Term 4 hats are once again compulsory for outside play and activities, could all parents please ensure that students have their school hats for the commencement of Term 4. The commencement of a new term is also a timely reminder to parents that students must be in the correct school uniform. This means that the Sports Uniform is only to be worn on days that students have sport and that students must be in the correct school shoes with formal uniform. Grade 1 to Grade 6 Students are welcome to change into sports shoes during the day but must arrive and leave school in their correct black leather school shoes.
If any families have any spare uniform items they would like to donate to the school for our "Spares Cupboard" (particularly smaller sizes), can you kindly drop them off to the school office. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Staffing preparations for 2020 have commenced. In the coming weeks you will see advertisements for a number of teaching staff positions in Catholic Schools in Tasmania. We have a number of staff who are on replacement contracts in our school community and it is a requirement that all replacement and limited positions are advertised each year.
If parents know that they will not be continuing enrolment of their child/children at Holy Rosary Catholic School in 2020 please let the Office know as soon as possible, as we have students on a waiting list for positions.
All Catholic Schools have been asked to share the following with all families:
