2019 Catholic Schools Netball Carnival Registrations

Rosary is delighted to host the 2019 Catholic Primary Schools Netball Carnival.

Venue: Tuggeranong Netball Association Courts, Were Street Calwell ACT 2905

Date:   Saturday 19 October 2019

Please click here to register your child and once the registration form is completed, please go into Qkr to make your child's registration payment.

Registration Fees

A fee of $35 per competitor is required to enter the carnival. The registration fee includes a food voucher (a sandwich, a fruit drink, a piece of fruit and a bag of chips) per competitor. If your child has any dietary requirements, please ensure you let the school know on the registration form for catering purposes. Competitors will also receive information to assist them and their team in participating on the day.

In the event that the safety of participants is perceived as being placed at an unacceptable risk or the grounds are closed due to wet weather, the event will be cancelled. If this occurs, it is not practical to reschedule or refund team registration fees.

Whilst there will be plenty of netball, there will also be other activities on the day to keep the young at heart entertained. For your convenience, there will also be food stalls selling a range of sweet and savoury items so remember to bring some cash along on the day.

There will be several water refill stations around the grounds on the day, though we recommend each child brings along a drink bottle and plenty of water.  It is also advisable to bring a hat and sunscreen as it could be a warm spring day.

Rosary Primary School community is looking forward to hosting this exciting event for the primary schools of the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn. We hope to see many of our school communities at this fun-filled day.

Registrations close on Thursday 22ndAugust 2019

Please note: If teams do not have parents willing to volunteer to either a Coach, Manager and Referee nominated (referees can be older siblings who attend high school), then that team will not be able to play in the Carnival.

Sports Coordinator

WASTE FREE WEDNESDAY

HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO HELP YOU MAKE WASTE-FREE LUNCH BOXES A REALITY:

  • Buy mini containers and compartment lunch boxes (small hands can help pack their own lunches!).
  • Buy snacks in bulk like unsweetened yogurt, hummus, cheese or crackers, and dispense into small reusable containers as required.
  • Many fruits and vegetables come wrapped in their own ‘natural packaging’, such as tomatoes, snow peas, oranges, bananas, baby cucumbers and beans.
  • Include fruit and vegetables in your child’s lunchbox every day. It’s a great way to make these foods a normal part of your child’s life, which can potentially lessen waste and reduce grocery costs.
  • Wrap sandwiches in a cloth napkin, reusable beeswax wrap or a paper bag. 
  • Have children choose from a list of healthy, package-free options, and assist in making their own lunch to avoid uneaten food.
  • Avoid buying individually-wrapped snacks, squeeze pouch yoghurts and single-use sandwich bags.

2019 Revue Night

BREAKING NEWS:
Parent’s Revue night - Sat 17 August. 
This year’s theme is........(drum roll) ......
Revue_night_Image.jpg
 
So what is Revue? 
Revue is a Holy Trinity tradition!  It goes way back....to last century, and beyond! 
It is a night of silliness and fun for the parents, where you get to dress up and - if you’re keen, do a short performance to entertain us. And at the end of the night the music plays and we take to the dance floor. 
 
Class, group and individual acts welcome.
Acting, singing, dancing, short films, stand-up, playing an instrument - your call. Goal is to make it amusing - but not offensive!  
All acts will need to attend rehearsal in the week before, and be judged suitable. 
 
We get to have a laugh, and occasionally get to witness some real talent. And we raise money for a good cause!
 
What do you need to do? 
6 weeks to showtime, so start talking to your class mates about costumes and act ideas. Dust off that ukulele and warm up your vocal chords. Find your tap shoes and practice your stand-up, cos REVUE IS COMING!!
 
What do we wear?
Dress up to the theme! Have fun, and think outside the box. Classes can nominate a sub-theme which falls within the overall theme, and lock that in as their own. Email me at monmartha@hotmail.com
Don’t wait too long, or another class might grab your idea. 
 
Have a great holiday, and I’ll be in touch again early next term.
 
Yours in Revue, 
Monica Campbell, Revue MC & Co-ordinator 

Safety Message

Good afternoon everyone

We have received an ACT Policing media statement today regarding a child approach at Eddison Park in Phillip at 4.45pm yesterday. When approached by the child’s father, the man ran and got into a brown/gold Range Rover 4WD and headed towards Yamba Drive. The man is described as Caucasian, of medium build, with short hair, clean shaven and wearing a lime green shirt with a logo, blue jeans and work boots. Police are seeking witnesses and ask that anyone with information contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 and quote reference 6425303.

While this matter does not directly relate to our school community at this time, I take the opportunity to remind our families of the importance of keeping safe, including children advising their parent/carers of their whereabouts if normal routines change, and following the measures outlined below in reporting any suspicious incidents.

HOW TO REPORT

If a child alerts you to an approach that has just happened, parents, guardians or teachers are asked to contact police immediately on 131 444 and in a life threatening situation phone 000 immediately.

The sooner the police are notified the sooner they can attend. 

Police are encouraging parents, guardians and teachers to ensure children understand how to keep themselves safe, particularly when walking to and from school, and to teach children about stranger safety.

Information on ways to help children to stay safe is available on the Constable Kenny Koala website.

You are reminded to remain vigilant and report any suspicious persons or activity to ACT Policing Operations immediately following an incident on 131 444. If it is a life-threatening situation, please phone 000. The sooner an incident is reported the quicker police can respond and attend to target the area and the surrounds.

If a child approach occurs on the weekend or outside of school hours, parents are asked to contact police immediately. 

Kind regards,

Philippa Brearley

ICAS ASSESSMENTS 2019

We are delighted to inform you that Holy Trinity will be participating in the world-renowned ICAS Assessments again this year. ICAS is developed by UNSW Global, a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of New South Wales, with over 35 years’ experience in educational assessments.

ICAS is designed to target students’ higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills in English, Mathematics, Science, Writing, Spelling and Digital Technologies. 

Each assessment celebrates students’ accomplishments by providing opportunities for recognition. Every student will receive a certificate and an online result report. Top performers will be eligible for medals and are invited to attend special award ceremonies to have their academic excellence publicly recognised.

The assessments are suitable for students wishing to extend themselves academically and take up the personal challenge of competing in an international assessment. Your child will be presented with high-quality, expert-developed questions, allowing them to apply their learning without the need for prior study or revision.

ICAS Assessments are now online, a move that reflects a sector-wide transition to computer-based assessment. This allows greater accessibility for students and faster delivery of results.
