‘Let the little children come to me’ was the theme of our Opening Mass this year. It was lovely to join together as a community to celebrate Mass and the beginning of a new school year. The students of Room 6 did a wonderful job planning, decorating the church, reading, and running the music and projector. A huge thank you to Room 2, who performed a beautiful dance for us. The students of Room 1 received their heart necklaces from their Big Brothers and Big Sisters in Room 6 and the candle was passed from one of our youngest students to the new Year 8 leaders for 2019. Thank you to all the parents and whanau who were able to come along and be part of this day. We look forward to a wonderful year ahead.
As a Catholic community, we joined together to help out those in need over the holiday period, by donating cans of food. These donations were donated to St Vincent de Paul and the Mercy Hospice, who will ensure that they are distributed to those in need. We thank all those who contributed to making this a successful event.
