Welcome back to Term 4
First Communion & Confirmation Celebration
Held on Sunday at St Joseph's what a beautiful occasion!
Please see all our photos in the First Communion Folder.
We are going to be so very busy this term, it will fly by!
There are swimming lessons every Monday
We are learning to play golf every Wednesday.
We had Purple Shirt Day to raise funds for Otahuhu Rotary who are helping to eradicate Polio worldwide!
We came back to school in our PJ's for a "Candlelight Read Aloud Evening"
even the teachers wore their PJ's!
We enjoy 3 stories read to us by a selection of teachers, parents, grandparents and friends of St Joseph's.
It was great fun!
Next week Friday 31st we are having a Sausage Sizzle to help raise money for a little boy we know, so he might be able to get an assistance dog! The dogs are very expensive to train and thought we would like to help.
This is a photo of Jensen and one of the assistance dogs, that belongs to another child.
Thanks to your wonderful efforts we are able to send $1000 to help Jensen. You are AWESOME!
We also have children preparing to make their First Communion this November.
And of course we have shifted into our 4 new classrooms.
