Our New Leaders

Today we celebrated our first Mass for the year and also the inauguration of our new House Leaders.

The surprise factor on theirs faces was priceless! 

Congratulations to: April and Desiree (Kauri), Giselle and Augustine (Rimu), Asinate and Paul (Totara), Aleenah and Angelina (Rata). Thanks also to the younger students of each house for lighting the candles for our Leaders to... 

                                                                    'Lead The Way' 

Duck duck goose for ALL!

 Thursday arvo and Room 8 enjoyed the company of Room 2. After a few relay races and some tunnel ball we all relaxed with a game of Duck duck goose. There were only 3 rules and I think they were all broken with every turn taken! But Hey... rules are made to be broken and the main think was there were lots of laughter! Hope we can do it again soon Room 2!!!

Mission Day

This year Mission Day was a bit different... instead of stalls we had 'A-thons.' Room 8 had a NZ A-thon where we had to learn 50 places in NZ over a 2 week period. Our knowledge was then tested on Mission Day. As a school and community, we raised a lot of money for the Holy Angels Orphanage in India. We hope we are able to help and support them as this year has been extremely hard for countries like India where the pandemic has been particularly ruthless. 

 As part of our day we had a raffle which was drawn just before we left to go home.
