All students are excited that they will be 'published authors' by the end of the term.
The school will attend the Parish Mass on Friday weeks 1, 5 and 7.
We will have two school masses this term. All Saints/All Souls and the End of year Thanksgiving Mass.
The focus for October is the "Rosary," students began the new term saying a decade of the Rosary in the morning liturgy.
Te Rongopai Good News
Focuses on Sacred Scripture in the Tradition of the Church, as God’s relationship with people, with us (Revelation). It addresses such questions as what does the Bible contain, where did it come from and what do the stories mean for me? It highlights the ‘joy of the Gospel’ and addresses the complexity of revelation and interpretation as appropriate to different ages of young people. It invites and equips young people with ways of reading and praying Sacred Scripture.
Young people will develop an understanding of the Bible as a library of books with a range of origins, authorship, genre, style and purpose. They will be able to retell many of the narratives and concepts, and will develop an understanding of the significance of these texts, as part of God’s revelation, within the Catholic Tradition and for human society today.
