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

Religious Education Update

Greetngs to all/Tēnā koutou katoa

We hope that you had a result term 3 break and that you enjoyed your me with family and friends. Term 4 promises to be a busy and enjoyable me for us all at Sacred Heart.

A highlight of term 3 was the official opening and blessing of the new learning block and landscaping of our school by Bishop Paul Martin. It was a privilege to have the bishop, invited guests and family members join staff and students for this occasion. We felt thankful that we were able to sit outside in the warm sunshine.

In the last week of term 3, the students from year 3 – Room 6, held a prayer service about Friendship. This focussed on inclusion, acceptance of others and the willingness to reach out to those in need of friendship. The children presented this with readings, prayers and song. A very thought-provoking service performed beautifully by the children.

This term the class prayer services are to be held as follows: Rooms 1 and 2 – 1.45 pm, Friday 25th October
Senior school – 1.45 pm, Friday 8th November
Middle school – 1.45 pm, Friday 22nd November

Rooms 5 and 6 – 1.45 pm, Friday 6th November

Children from the school and parish of Sancta Maria are preparing to make their First Communion later this term. The children from Sacred Heart who will make their First Communion are:
Rasela, Natalie, Andrae, Lila-Rose, Santiago, Taana (Chloe), Adrian, Xzavierre, Rafael, Georgina

To reflect on the past year, celebrate our school community and farewell the year 8 students a school Mass will be held on Saturday 14th December.

Many blessings during this term.
