The Healthy Hut

At Holy Rosary Catholic School “The Healthy Hut” Canteen will be open on Thursday and Friday to meet the needs of our school community.

A variety of healthy products will be available to our students, most of these products are prepared and cooked in our school canteen.

We offer a healthy and varied Canteen menu for lunch orders and counter sales.

To continue to successfully maintain our “Gold Accreditation” and to ensure our canteen will operate efficiently and smoothly, we need voluntary assistance from parents, grandparents, carers, etc. If you are able to assist please complete the Interest in being a Volunteer form, and return it to the School Office.

The Canteen is a registered food business with the Glenorchy City Council and is located on the school premises in the quadrangle outside the Administration building.

Cyber Safety

Cyber Safety refers to the safe and responsible use of information and communication technologies. This includes privacy and information protection, respectful communication and knowing how to get help to deal with online issues. Common cyber safety issues include:

  • Cyber Bullying
  • Sexting
  • Identity theft
  • Predatory behaviour

Cyber safety issues most commonly occur through a student’s use of their own technology device, for example, smart phone, tablet, laptop, home computer.

Holy Rosary Catholic School recognises its duty to students to provide a safe and positive learning environment which includes the responsible use of information and communication technologies.

Cyber Safety is a “whole of school community” approach involving students, staff and parents/carers.

Safe use of technology whilst at school is managed through our iPad Program. Questions and Answers can be read here

Library

Our library empowers every member of our school community to become lifelong learners who develop a lasting love of reading. Our library contains an extensive range of high quality, current and relevant print and non-print resources appropriate to the social, cultural, emotional and educational needs of our students.

By encouraging children to read, you:

  • Inspire children and young people to love books and reading
  • are rewarded with the chance to explore books and have fun doing so
  • Raise awareness about how important reading is as a life skill
  • Encourage families and parents to read with their children every day

As parents you can play a big role in your child's reading development by:

  • Reading with your child every day
  • Encouraging reading at home and school
  • Talking about books with your child
  • Making reading a family affair
  • Joining your local LINC or library where you can borrow a great range of books for free

Our library is located within the school grounds , and all students have the opportunity during the week to borrow books or resources.

Parents are asked to support teachers in promoting the care of books. It is the responsibility of parents to replace lost or damaged books. All children should have a library bag. Students may also borrow and return books at other times during the week.
