1. Principal's News Week 4 Term 4 2020

 That's How it Happened - Senior Production


The seniors have had a dress rehearsal this morning.  The juniors are now busing out to St Kevin's to enjoy a matinee performance.  We look forward to seeing families this evening for the evening performance.  The Home and School are once more kindly selling ice blocks so please bring change if you want one.



Pasifika Awards

Congratulations to Lisiate Hausia and Kacymea Tahitu'a who won awards for being all round outstanding Pasifika students.  They are pictured here with members of their families and councillor Hane Halalele who presented their awards.


End of Year Events
Fr Wayne will be on leave from 25th November until after Christmas.  He has invited the year 8s to share a mass with him and receive his gift of candles on Wednesday 18th November at 6.00 pm.  Invitations will be sent to year 8s and their families.  

Welcome Mass for new families:  Saturday 14th November, 5pm.

Home and School: Junior Disco  - Friday 11th December, 6.30pm

Home and School: Year 7 & 8 formal - Monday 14th December, starting at 5.30pm with photos for the year 8s, meal at 6.00 pm and year 7s arrive, as year 8s guests, for more photos and dancing at 7.00 pm.

Junior Nativity and Senior Prize-giving - Tuesday 15th December, 6.00 pm all families are encouraged to come.  PLEASE NOTE: everything about this ceremony will be the same as our usual send off for our year 8s, the only thing different is we won't have a priest presiding as Fr Wayne is away and supply priests are limited.  Our parish/school will do a Eucharistic liturgy, as we have done during our school masses.  Apart from this everything else will remain the same.

Final Assembly -Wednesday 16th December, 11.30 am year 8 speeches, leaver's certificates and leaders for 2021 announced.

School ends 12.30 pm Wednesday 16th December

Reminder - Teacher Only day, school is closed Monday 16th November.

Start date for term 1 = Monday 1st February.

Note for 2021
Congratulations to Sara Jones-Hogan who has secured the deputy principal at North School.  We are recruiting for a new staff member.

At the moment, there are many changes happening with people leaving and coming into our community which is making it very difficult to finalise classes for 2021.  We will publish stationary lists by year level so you will know what to purchase for your child based on their year but it is unlikely we will be able to finalise classes until the end of the Summer holidays.

We look forward to seeing you this evening at St Kevin's auditorium, 5.30 pm for actors, start at 6.00 pm, doors shut at 6.15 pm.  The performance should take about an hour and a half with an interval break in the middle.

Aroha and God Bless
