Newsletter (June 2010)
I thought I would devote the majority of this newsletter to the activities of some of our boys which I am sure you will find interesting. You can find our sports and cultural events on our website, www.rosmini.school.nz but too often there is a lot taking place that goes under the radar. So in this epistle we will have a look at our boys’ involvement in what could be titled ‘community activities’.
I trust you read in The Aucklander about Peter Keeling’s young men who did excellent work on improving the ‘landscape’ of the Bayswater cemetery.
Newsletter (May 2010)
We would like to update the uniform for all Year 13 students from 2011. It is proposed that they will wear a blazer, white shirt, tie and dress trousers on Mondays and Fridays. The usual blue Year 13 uniform will still be worn on the other days, so in a sense this dress uniform is an additional one, and one that our senior prefects and the Catholic Character Group have been wearing for a number of years.
Newsletter (October 2009)
It was exactly three weeks to our senior prize giving when I started to write this newsletter, so there is very little time before exams start, which are so important for our boys' future. I have asked the staff to ensure that they stress the importance of a sound study/revision programme, and from a parental perspective, insist that they give a generous amount of time to study. A key issue is the casual approach boys have, that they have achieved enough credits to pass, but unless they have the sufficient number of Merits and Excellences many desirable courses will not be open to them. Our senior boys should be looking to do at least three hours homework a night.
Newsletter (November 2009)
Firstly I would like to share with you the success of some of our top students regarding Scholarship awards. Some of these awards carry a significant monetary value and are highly sought after. In a previous newsletter I have covered some of these achievements, but it is important to convey the number of scholarships that our Year 13 boys have obtained.
Junior Newsletter (September 2009)
The third term is drawing to a close with lots of successes throughout the term. Well done to all the boys who entered academic, sporting and social events so wholeheartedly.
