Dear Parents and Friends,
I sincerely hope everyone is managing well at home during this time of lockdown. I thank the staff and parents for working hard with the students to help and support them with their online learning. From all accounts, the students and teachers are very much enjoying the Class Meetings where they can see everyone and interact with one another. I believe that technical difficulties have now been resolved and everyone is feeling more confident knowing where to find what for their remote learning activities. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are encountering difficulties or require support. I wish you all the very best as we work through this difficult time and pray that we will come out of lockdown as scheduled to be able to come together again as a school community on site noting that some activities and events may need to be altered or cancelled to comply with any restrictions in place at the time.
Regional Athletics Carnival - postponed
The school has been informed that the Regional Athletics Carnival has been postponed to Friday 15th October. It will be held at the AIS. We were very fortunate to be able to run our school-level Athletics Carnival on school grounds, given that the public ovals were closed, to give the students the opportunity to compete. I thank Mrs Godfrey and her staff team of helpers for making adjustments to the program to ensure the carnival could be held on our own school oval so that the students could be recognised for their sporting achievements and qualify for the Regional contest.
Obviously, with lockdown only ending on 2nd September, the Fathers’ Day Stall that was planned for 3rd September cannot go ahead as we have not been able to accept donations or make the necessary preparations for the event. This does not take away from the fact that we highly value all our wonderful dads and grand-dads. We wish you the happiest of days and I pray that lockdown is no longer in place so that you can be together with extended family members on your special day.
Thoughts for the Week:
"In your work, offer your difficulties and troubles quite simply to God …… and you will find that His blessing will rest upon you and on all you do."
St John Vianney
SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION
Unfortunately, I am unable to say whether a change of date is needed for the Sacrament of Confirmation at this stage. The students will continue to prepare as normal and I will keep you posted.

Acknowledgement of Country
We gather together today on the ancestral lands of the Ngunnawal People to continue our learning journey together
and to celebrate the wonder of stories and how they can empower us all.
We acknowledge the First Australian as the traditional custodians of the land on which we are meeting.
Since the beginning of time, storytelling has played a vital role in the Australian Aboriginal cultures
and these are among the oldest living cultures in human history.
We pay our respects to the Elders of the community and extend our recognition to their descendants who are present
as we acknowledge their spiritual connection to Country
and their continuing cultural contributions that are made to the life of our school and this community.
We welcome everyone to Book Week at Rosary Primary School and hope that your own reading connects you to something greater,
whether it be for understanding, imagination, knowledge or pleasure.
