Kia Ora e te Whanau,
We had sixty students in attendance at our Sunday Parish School Mass. This was a good turn out, however we must strive to have the majority of our students participating in our School Masses. Thank you to all the students and families that attended Mass and supported the PTA Cake Stall. Also, thank you to Miss Quinn for her planning and organisation of the Mass.
It was great to see many families contributing baking for the Cake Stall, and this was a great fundraiser for the school. There were many delicious treats that I saw students, parents and parishioners eating after Mass. A special thank you to the PTA Members who priced and sold the items.
We wish the following students the very best as they compete in the North Zone Swimming Competition tomorrow. I know that they will represent the school to a high standard: Alexander, George K, Cameron, Rylee, Flynn, Naledi, Billy, Oliver C, Samuel M.
During this Lenten Season St Albans Catholic School is supporting St Vincent de Paul with their 40 bags in 40 days collection, with a slight variation. It was great to see families contributing last week. There is a note further on in the newsletter.
Nga mihi nui,
Principal – Tumuaki
