Key Dates

Special Catholic Character

World day of Prayer for the Care of Creation

In the book of Genesis, God appears to Moses in the burning bush telling him to ‘take off his shoes’ as he is standing on holy ground…as we stand today on the holy ground of our earth today, we are reminded also of the importance of ‘taking off our shoes!’
What ‘sandals’ might God be asking you to remove as you stand on this ‘holy ground?’ If we listen to the voice of creation, we can hear a song in praise of our Creator…

O Divine Voice, You sing and the universe comes into being!

You breathe and all things springs to life…. We hear also an anguished plea lamenting our mistreatment of this our common home.Our hearts cry out…. What is earth saying to us? What is earth
saying to you?

Many things have to change course, but it is we human beings above all that need to change.

CTK Service Programme – Due 1st November 2022


Next term our ukulele group will be involved in the Kiwilele Jam. This is with 5-6 other Auckland Central schools on Tuesday 8th November from 11.00am-12.30pm. The Kiwileles Jam will be hosted by Dilworth Junior Campus. What a great opportunity for our students to play along with many other students from other schools. Our ukulele group has been working hard to learn a number of songs in preparation for the Kiwileles Jam. Kiwileles has not had an event since COVID 2020. The Kiwileles Jam is a smaller scale event for our students to sing and play songs together with other schools.
