THE YEAR HAS COME TO AN END!

Our final day together will be Friday 14th December 2018.  School closes at 12 noon.

Thank you to all the families who have entrusted their daughters to me in Room 11 for 2018.  It has been a busy year of faith encounters, learning, fun, sisterhood and emotional roller coasters. The girls have all grown and blossomed into beautiful roses. 

I wish you all God's blessings for the future. I wish you all spiritual, academic and emotional prosperity.  

LUCKY WORLD, HERE YOU COME!!

To the girls in Room 11: "Nothing is impossible with God on your side!"

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN ROOM 11!

Kia ora whanau,

We would love to see you all on Friday 23rd November 2018 in the hall at 10.00 am to celebrate Room 11's assembly. The girls are working hard on this, to showcase their gifts and talents.  

In our Technology Unit, we had to identify a need in the community. We found out that the prem babies in the ICU unit at Waitakere Hospital need woollen bonnets, booties and blankets. 

To address this need, we are busy knitting to help these babies. We have practiced using skeins of acrylic and we are now knitting with 100% pure wool, which is what they need for warmth and comfort.

We are very blessed to have help from our Holy Cross Parish Caring Community ladies. The girls in Room 11 are learning an invaluable skill and helping to fill a need in our community. This also serves as part of our Social Justice outreach.

MASS INVITATION TO CELEBRATE THE LIFE OF OUR PATRON, SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI - TERM 4

We warmly invite family, friends and extended family to our Eucharistic Mass celebration.

 When: Wednesday 24th October 2018 
Time: 10.30 a.m.
Where: Holy Cross Parish Church
Occasion: To celebrate the life of our Patron, 
St. Francis of Assisi.  

St. Francis of Assisi abandoned a life of luxury for a life devoted to Christianity after hearing the voice of God, who commanded him to rebuild the Christian church and live in poverty. St. Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of animals and the environment.  

Pope Francis reminds us -

"How marvellous it would be if, at the end of the day, each of us could say: today, I have performed an act of charity towards others!"
