2. Special Character Week1 Term 1 2021

Kiaora, Malo e Lelei, and Warm Greetings

Karakia for the day

Kia hora te marino

Kia whakapapa pounamu te moana 

Hei huarahi mā tātou

i te rangi nei 

Aroha atu, aroha mai,

Tātou i a tātou katoa,

Hui e! Tāiki e!                                                                      

May the sea be like greenstone

A pathway for us all this day

Let us show respect for each other 

For one another

Bind us all together!     

Special Character Focus:

Religious Education: Our children's next Religious Education learning will be about  "Our School Charism".  Part of the learning is that by the end of the week 2 your child  will know which Saint is his or her House Saint. Be able to explain what Charism of Veritas means and how that works for him or her. They will understand the school values and being a JJ role model. 

School and Family Mass- 
Thursday Mass
Presenting the Gospel at Mass is a service opportunity and Ministry for our children in spreading God’s word. Our children are proud of themselves every week either through singing, videoing and acting the gospel. It is a privilege for our children to serve and present the word of God. You are welcome to join us for mass at 9:15 am on Thursday in the Basilica. 

Thank you to Year 7/8 Mrs Winders/Mrs Dooley's class for the presentation of the gospel today.
