Otahuhu Rotary Dictionaries

Each year members of the Otahuhu Rotary donate a dictionary to every Otahuhu Year 4 student, we can keep our very own copy to use every year!

Thank you very much

Field of Remembrance

 

On Monday we felt very honoured to have Sergeant Major Mark Mortiboy, Lance Bombardier Vaivevea and Lance Corporal Danni Pardoe of the New Zealand Army to share with us a "Field of Remebrance" service where we laid crosses to remember soldiers from our area who fought in WW1.

Please see the lovely photos taken at the service on the "Field of Remembrance" page.  It was both a lovely and moving time.

On Friday we held our Anzac Service, V & A Awards and at 2pm the Boys Choir sang wartime songs in the hall.

   

There are more photos of our special day on the V & A, R.E./ Mass and Music pages.

 

On Friday 27th we held the official opening of our Mercy Block.  We enjoyed a very special day with invited guests and friends of St Joseph's and many of our families.

The children enjoyed responding to the speeches through cultural dance and singing.

 

Please see the photos in the "Mercy Block Opening" folder.
