Special Character Focus:
Religious Education: Our children are excited and very keen to share their learning and have some critical thinking about our school vision, school values, school motto-Veritas and know that JESUS is the reason for this school. He is the model of its' Community and the inspiration of its children and teacher.
Thank you to Mrs Brookes class- Pukeko and Miss Sollano class- Kiwi for sharing the learning of their children at our assembly last Friday. They were be able to explain what Charism of Veritas and 4R's means and how that works for them. You can watch the videos of their learning in our St Joseph's Facebook page.
WEEK 2 8th – 12th February (Green)
8th St Jerome Emiliani
8th St Josephine Bakhita
8th Waitangi Day
10th St Scholastica
February to be a nationwide public holiday continued from the early promises made in 1957. Prime Minister Norman Kirk announcing that from 1974 it would be a national holiday known as New Zealand Day. The Waitangi Day Act 1976 reinstated the name Waitangi Day.
So we have a Holy Day of sorts to reflect as a country, in thanksgiving, for the founding document of our nationhood.
