What a great end of term it has been. I have really enjoyed my first term here at Rosary and look forward to term 4.
There have been some wonderful events over the past two weeks.
The Advanced Gymnastics performances were brilliant.
It was great to see the students performing with such confidence and skill.
Please 'read more' for thanks, staffing updates and social justice initiatives.
The Numerical Acumen Awards Assembly was another highlight. It was exciting to see so many students receiving awards - congratulations to all of you. The awards were for performance, improvement, dedication and inspiration. Our school was awarded second place in the Inspirational School of the Year Award for SA and NSW.
The third highlight was our School Choir taking part in the Catholic Education Festival Choir performance. The event this year was filmed at Sacred Heart College in place of a live performance at Festival Theatre due to COVID 19.
The students really enjoyed being part of the 400 student choir. We would like to congratulate all of the students involved for such beautiful performances.
A special thank you to the Parents and Friend’s for organising the school disco and donut day.
A great way to launch into the holiday period. Classes will be grouped throughout the day and will have their allocated time to get down and boogie!!!
It’s casual clothes day as well!
I would like to inform you that the Catholic Education SA Summary Reports from the review into how CESA schools are catering for students with disability (SWD) are now available on the SWD Review webpage on the CESA website:
These reports include: A Summary Report of the conversations the Review has held with 124 students with disability across metropolitan and country South Australia. Summary Reports of the Review Surveys results for the following groups:
• 343 parents/carers/guardians of students with disability
• 100 members of the community
• 98 principals of Catholic schools
• 822 staff of Catholic schools: teachers, positions of responsibility, deputy principals and support staff
• 56 staff in the Catholic Education Office. For your information, the different Survey Summary Reports consist of three main components:
• an overview synopsis of the responses in the respective survey prepared by Ms Gerry Gray, a Disability Specialist and Advocate from NSW, whom the Review has engaged to assist its independent approach
• data reports for the survey questions inviting a quantitative response that have been prepared by Square Holes, the independent company the Review commissioned to undertake the surveys
• a brief outline by Square Holes of the themes that emerged in the qualitative comments people provided in the surveys.
Our final information session was held this week for families preparing their children to receive the Sacrament of Eucharist next term.
It was lovely for our families to come together and support their children during this special time in their lives.
