St Patrick's Day 2023

Tomorrow, it's time to shine in GREEN

Tomorrow St Patrick's School Bryndwr and St Patrick's School Kaiapoi will be coming together to celebrate St Patrick's Day!

Both schools will start the day by celebrating their Feast Day Mass in their own schools before departing to Spencer Park at 10:00 am by bus.

We have again organised Sports Canterbury's Top Team Challenge for both schools. Sports Canterbury's Top Team Challenge is an exciting and fun-filled event that encourages students to engage in team-building and friendly competition.

With a sausage sizzle for lunch and ice blocks for all participants at the end of the day, it promises to be a memorable experience for everyone involved.

To ensure a smooth and enjoyable day, all students are reminded to come dressed in green to celebrate St Patrick's Day.

It is also recommended that they bring a towel in case they get wet during the activities and a change of clothes if required.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students to showcase their sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership skills while having a blast with their peers. Parents are most welcome to come down on the day, we can't wait to see you all there!
