Our Future Is Determined by Understanding Our Past
The children's visits to the parish archives continued this week with all year 4-8 children now having thoroughly explored the parish centre.
I have heard from our diocesan office that it is likely we will start our rebuild by mid 2022. We all wish it was happening already but in some ways this still gives us time to think. It allows the children to continue to explore how the past has been preserved in Oamaru and what we want to do to preserve our essence moving forward. We have $5500 left from funding last year for Enviroschools that needs to be spent this year and we will look at our school environment through the lens of the future and what marks we wish to make.
