1. Principal's News Week 5 Term 4, 2019

Junior Visit to the Marae
Thank you to Moeraki Marae for hosting our junior school last week.  It was a very informative and interesting visit.

We had a fantastic day for athletics on Tuesday.  It was very well organised by Paula Brien and we enjoyed sharing the time with North School.  Our students enjoyed themselves, and showed great sportsmanship.  There are lots more photos on our Facebook page.

Filipino Pagsasama
We invite our Filipino families and friends to a Filipino Pagsasama next Thursday November 21 at 6pm in the school staffroom.  Our Filipino group will perform some singing and dance items.  Our Filipino Mums will perform an item and we are hoping some of our St Kevin's students will also perform.  Please bring a plate to share.

Here is our Filipino class practising this afternoon
