Message from the APRIM

Wednesday 17th February, 2021

Yesterday the school community gathered to mark the beginning of Lent with an Ash Wednesday Liturgy in the school gym. Many thanks to Father Paul for leading us.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40-day journey to the most important time in the Church’s calendar – Easter. Lent is a special time for growing and changing and provides an opportunity for us to think about the example of Jesus’ life. We try to be more like Jesus, especially with our theme this year, ‘Together at the Table’ and how we can be more inclusive of others, just as Jesus extended table fellowship with all.

News from the Principal

Dear Rosary Community

On Tuesday this week Dr Neil McGoran, Director of Catholic Education released a video message of welcome for all familiesstaff and students  that was published on the CESA Website and on our own Facebookpage. Dr Neil speaks about the importance of a community being together and reminds us that we are in partnership to support each child.  This message also reminds us of the incredible gift of each child and that all our young people matter absolutely.

We have had a “flying start”!  This is the term used at Rosary at the start of each year.  It is the focus of Week 1 and 2 as children begin the school year.  It is a time when we listen carefully to the children.  Each child shares with the teacher/s who they are, often communicated both through words and art.  Children have shared their interests, what they like to learn, how they like to learn, what they want to learn and some children have set themselves goals for 2021.  Teachers also listened carefully to the parents in Book a Chat where we acknowledge our partnership and that you are the expert, you know your child best. I would like to thank both teachers and parents for their commitment to work together to support each child.
