We smile | We speak pleasantly to each other | We make the right choices
We consider others’ needs and feelings | We make eye contact | We take pride in ourselves and our school

 Special Character is how, we live, play and work together at Sacred Heart School

 

Religious Education Update

Greetings to all/Tēnā koutou katoa

We hope that you had a restful Term 2 break and that you enjoyed your me with family and friends. My apologies for this late newsletter.

In week 2 the students from year 7/8 held a prayer service about Persistence. Last week the whole school attended Mass on Thursday morning to celebrate the Feast of the Assumption. This commemorates the end of Mary’s earthly life and the assumption of her body and soul into Heaven.

Tomorrow, 23 August, the children from Room 1 will be presenting a prayer service in the church at 1.45pm.

Social Justice Week is being held in week 8. Classes will participate in activities designed to raise awareness of social justice in our world and how the actions of others and ourselves affect lives. Room 2 will present a liturgy about Social Justice on Friday 13th September in the church at 1.45pm.

The Confirmation service will be held on Monday 15th September. First Reconciliation will be at 7 pm on Tuesday 17th September. Children from the school and parish of Sancta Maria are preparing to make their First Communion later next term. The children from Sacred Heart who will make their First Communion are:

Rasela, Natalie, Andrae, Lila‐Rose, Santiago, Tatiana (Chloe), Adrian, Xzavierre, Rafael and Georgina

Many blessings during this term.
