1. Principal's News - Week 2 Term 4, 2017

St Joseph's International Food Fair

St Joseph's is a multicultural school.  We have Chinese, Indian, Tongan, African, British, Irish, Australian, Latin American, Other European, American, and other Southeast Asian cultures at our school, as well as New Zealand Maori and Pakeha.

Our families love to share their culture and culinary delights and we welcome our school community and the general public to join us for our 3rd annual Food Fair.  It starts after 9.30am mass, at 10.30am this Sunday 29th October and there will be a variety of foods and entertainment.  It is a great opportunity for us all to get together and enjoy the talents and diversity of our community.

Bring the children to have their faces painted, play on the bouncy castle and enter the cup cake competition.

Thank you to Rebecca Heffernan and our St Joseph's Home and School committee for organising this event.

Senior Sandpit
Many thanks to Road Metals for providing the sand for our new senior sandpit and to Tim and Daniel Frances-Rees for providing the labour and the Home and School for providing the materials.

Welcome Mass and Bible Presentations
All children who have started St Joseph's in the second half of 2018 are specially invited to join the parish for Sunday mass on Sunday 19th November.  The Home and School will present each child with an illustrated Bible.  This will be followed by refreshments in the Dean O'Reilly lounge.  We encourage school families to join us for this celebration of our new students and their families.

Check out our Facebook page for other news from the week and remember to take advantage of the amazing books on offer at Book Fair next week.  The hall will be open for Book Fair before and after school each day.

God Bless and Aroha
