This term our R.E Curriculum that the children are learning about is Holy Spirit/Church. The focus is "You have a responsibility to listen to and respond to the Holy Spirit.
One of the key ideas that our children are focused on when learning about Te Wairua Tapu- The Holy Spirit:
The Holy Spirit appears in the bible story.
In Acts 1:8-11 it talks about:
- power of the Holy Spirit
- The Great Commission
- The Ascension of Jesus
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth”. Acts 1:8

Week 4 - May 23-27 (White)
OUR LADY HELP OF CHRISTIANS
In May, there are three Marian feasts that are celebrated which help us to understand what Mary can teach us about being followers of Jesus.
The Feast of Our Lady, Help of Christians, which is celebrated on May 24, dates back to the sixteenth century, which was not a peaceful time in Europe. In 1571, Catholics throughout the continent joined in praying the rosary in the hope of peace. This day is just as important today. A special time to ask Mary to help us all in our prayer for peace.
