Looking at the week ahead

Week 10 - last week of Term 3 Events

Dear Family/Whānau

This is a message from Donna Brown for those attending First Eucharist classes at the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit.

Kia ora Whānau

We have a change of times for this week’s session. We will still meet on Sunday 25th September, but we will meet at 9.10am and attend 9.30am Mass together instead of Children's liturgy (therefore, it is not necessary to have the 4.30pm session).

During this Mass Fr Joe has kindly offered to have what we call "Mass in slow motion" where he will break down the parts of the Mass with the children.

It is VERY important that the children attend this Mass and session. Afterwards, we will stay in the Cathedral and discuss what happened.

We look forward to seeing you all there!”

Donna Brown

Monday 26 September 2022 - Public Holiday

Looking at the week ahead

Wednesday 28 September - Swimming Sports and Whānau Wellbeing Hui

We have our Yr3-6 Swimming Sports at the Lido Aquatic Centre commencing at 12 noon followed by the Whānau Wellbeing Hui 3-5 pm in the School Hal. Please bring a small plate of kai/food to share and the PTFA will have a free sausage sizzle to begin the Whānau Wellbeing Hui.

We will require parent help with swimming sports on the day, if you are able to support us with this please contact Tracey Gunn, t.gunn@stjamescatholic.school.nz.

Children will be bussed to and from the pool. Children need to bring two NAMED towels and a NAMED water bottle with their NAMED swimming gear and to come to school in their NAMED sports clothes. Due to the outline of the day we will eat lunch before we leave. We will be encouraging your children to eat a light snack if they are hungry during this event.

Friday 30 September - Assembly

We invite you all to attend an Assembly at 2pm where learners will be celebrating their learning with family/whānau. This is the last day of Term 3.

God Bless
