1. Principals News - Week 1, Term 3 2016

Dominican Choir
Well done and thanks to the choir members who attended the Dominican celebration on Saturday night.  You were fabulous.  Our head boy Seth Sinclair gave a very confident and well received speech.  Thank you to Mrs Brookes and everyone who took part.

Cross Country
Students in Junior Hub 1 (Mrs Misiloi and Miss Gray's class) will not be participating in the Cross Country held at the Oamaru Race Course next Wednesday as there is a support person from out of town coming to work with these students and teachers and she can only come next Wednesday and Thursday.  The children will still run in a cross country course on Friday 12th August at 2.00 pm at school organised by our Yr 8 students.


Congratulations
To Mrs Brookes who was presented with her Leadership Certificate in teaching Religious Education by Fr Wayne at Mass on Tuesday. This certificate is obtained by being observed by members of the Diocese and ongoing Professional Development in the catholic faith.

Father Wayne is away on holiday at the moment and we wish him a well deserved rest.

Another great ski day on Monday with everyone being on their best behaviour.  Well done all.

School Mass was held on Tuesday this week with a great Gospel dramatisation by Mrs Dooley's class.

Swim for Life Programme for Yrs 1-4
Last term the junior school went to the Waitaki Aquatic centre to participate in a 'Swim for Life' passport programme.  This programme taught the children to learn water survival safety skills and how to swim.  We were very pleased with the accomplishment of our students compared to the national average and wanted to share their results with you.
