Newsletter-Week 2 Term Two
Newsletter 11 3 May 2023
It was lovely to be back at school last week and also to see the children being so happy to be back.
The Sport and Cultural Day was cancelled, unfortunately. Thank you to the parents who offered to help with setting up, and helping run one of the many events and to those who offered to help with coaching and managing. It was certainly going to be a huge team effort to run an event like this.
3 Way Conferences were held yesterday afternoon and again today. Thank you for making the time to meet with your children’s teacher.
The Mini Marathon is scheduled for this Friday. We have over 200 children entered into this event so a big uptake from children. Fingers crossed that the weather is good for running on that day. We will notify you early Friday morning if there is a change of programme or cancellation.

In Week 4 the Kakano team will be leading our Ascension Liturgy. This feast day commemorates the ascension of Jesus into Heaven after 40 days after his resurrection. It signifies that Christ completed his work on Earth and allowed him to prepare for his followers in Heaven.
In Week 5 we have our Pentecost Mass on the 26th of May. In the New Testament, Pentecost was the occasion of the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus. You are all welcome to join us on these special celebrations.
Have a great week.
Take care, God bless.
