Jaxon's Journey


Jaxon's Story

Jaxon Kaplatzis first started in 2019 in Ms Larosa's Reception class at Rosary in early 2019 .... since being diagnosed with Lymphoblastic Lymphoma our community has rallied behind his journey to assist his family in various ways.

We've created this page so that the community can keep up-to-date with what's happening. Click on the articles below to expand and read more about each one.


Jaxon's Backyard Makeover

The date for the blitz will be August 24 and 25.  We are hoping you can help.

Many of our families have been busy sourcing donations to completely transform the yard for Jaxon's family.  When they moved in last week, the weeds were waist high in the backyard with no lawn or garden.  The front yard isn't much better.

So we will be holding a two day blitz to clear, lay lawn, pot plants, plant trees and set up an outdoor setting for the family.  We have been overwhelmed with offers to help.... so if you are still keen and available....

Please complete the RSVP Form if you plan to attend.


Thank you to everyone for their contribution to this Auction.  A special thanks to our year 5 teacher Bernadette Basile for organising everything.

The Silent Auction will be held in the school Hall beginning Monday 19th August.  

Bidding will end at 2pm Friday 23rd August.

Many wonderful items available thanks to the generosity of many!

Every Thursday a band of very efficient parent helpers make up the popcorn, bag it and sell it for $1.

Orders can come in with your child on the day.  The money and order can be given to your child's class teacher.  Orders are delivered by recess time. 


There is no doubt that our students have also been touched by Jaxon's Journey and want to help.

Yesterday, let by Ale, our year 5's sold lollipops to raise money to help Jaxon's family.  


Our P&F make up delicious batches of Hot Chocolate each Friday. Orders have never been so high. 

The cost is $1 - just send it with your child.  They line up at lunch time near the kitchen and are served a delicious cup of 'Rosary Special Hot Chocolate'.


The annual school disco will be held in the gym on Friday 6th September.  

Tickets must be purchased prior to the event.  Cost is $10.
