(f) Pastoral Care
As you maybe aware, some of our school families experience times of compassionate need; like the death of a close family member, severe illness/injury or hardship. In response to this, the Home & School in 2008 started a new initiative in line with the St Joseph's Strategic Plan, whereby all classrooms will have one month of the school year to contribute to the Parish Welfare Freezer. The month of September has been assigned to Ruma Tawa and families are asked to donate cooked food or non perishable items. The items can be tinned, baking or a main meal, e.g. casserole, lasagna, muffins or biscuits. If you are in a position to contribute, please contact Maria Dickie on 027 255 8268 or 439 5599. Please bring to school on Friday mornings. Thank you.
