CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK AT OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY

posted 26 Feb 2017, 13:56 by Nicole Moussa   [ updated 27 Feb 2017, 19:52 ]

Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School, Fairfield is among the more than 620 Catholic schools in NSW and the ACT that will celebrate Catholic Schools Week from 5-11 March 2017.

During Catholic Schools Week, we take the opportunity to strengthen relationships between our school and valued community members including parents, grandparents, carers, parish friends and the priests of our parish.

This year, Sydney Catholic schools, including Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School, Fairfield, have adopted the theme Inspiring Spirits and Minds. The theme highlights the rich spiritual, academic, and social aspects of a Catholic education and draws inspiration from Pope Francis, who has called the Holy Spirit a gift which inspires a deeper understanding of God’s word and the teachings of Jesus.

Along with providing the many learning opportunities which stimulate students’ minds and ready them to make a valuable contribution to their communities, our teachers are committed to being inspirational role models who enrich the Catholic spirituality of our young people in a deep and meaningful encounter with Jesus.

We have planned various opportunities to showcase the many wonderful ways inspiration is shared at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School, Fairfield during Catholic Schools Week next week. Please join us for one or all of them.

·              Tuesday, March 7: Open Classrooms from 9.15-10.45am

                Visit your child’s classroom and see learning in action.

 

·              Wednesday, March 8: PEG (Parent Engagement Group) Meeting, 9am in the School Hall Foyer

 

·              Wednesday, March 8: Inquisitive Minds incursion for Years 4 and 5 in the school hall. 

            See Mathematics in such an engaging way. Year 4 from 9-11am; Year 5 from 11.35-1.35pm

 

·              Friday, March 10: Special Catholic Schools Week Prayer Assembly at morning assembly.

 

·              Friday, March 10: Parent Morning Tea in school hall from 9.30-10.30am.

I look forward to you sharing in the activities of Catholic Schools Week.
