Principal’s Message

On Sunday 3rd July at 10am our school has the honour of hosting our first Sunday Mass in over a year in our Parish.

We would like to show our Parish Community how amazing our school is and have every child in attendance. We would also like to invite parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles and siblings along also.

This is a great way for us all to gather as a whole School/Parish community.

Key Dates

Special Catholic Character

WMOF is the acronym for World Meeting of Families, created by Pope John Paul II in 1994. In fact, that year was declared “International Year of the Family” by the United Nations. Pope Wojtyla also wanted a Year of the Family to be celebrated in the Church at the same time; so the 1st World Meeting of Families was created, which was held in Rome on 8 and 9 October 1994. It was promoted, just like subsequent editions, by the Pontifical Council for the Family; in 2016, this Vatican body was disbanded and merged with the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life.

A World Meeting of Families has therefore been held since 1994 every three years and in different places around the world. The pattern followed has always been fairly similar, with an international Theological-Pastoral Congress at the start and ending, in the presence of the Pope, with a vigil and Festival of Families along with a great final Eucharistic celebration.

While we are not all able to attend the world meeting of families we are able to celebrate family life and the role of parents as first educators in faith. The diocese has prepared a number of resources to supplement those provided by the Vatican.

Warriors Community Foundation Visit

On Wednesday we were lucky enough to have the Warriors Community Foundation visit our school to talk to our tamariki about how we can keep our bodies healthy.

After our assembly the two ladies from the Warriors Female team took our tamariki for some games.

 

Room 2 – The Wonder Project

Over the past 6 weeks Room 2 have had the pleasure to have Isi Aholelei in their class teaching them about physics. Isi is from Watercare and an old boy of St Peter’s College.

The programme includes the students from Room 2 learning about

  • Laws of physics.
  • Designing and building rockets.
  • Test flying their rockets.

We thank Isi and Watercare for this amazing learning opportunity that they have given our Year 5 & 6 students.
