Special Character

The Proprietors of Catholic Integrated schools and Christian parents who entrust their children to the school have the responsibility to ensure that the Special Character of the school is maintained and preserved. The Special Character of the school is defined in the Integration Act as “a Roman Catholic School in which the whole school community, through the general school programme and in its’ Religious instructions and observances, exercises the right to live and teach the values of Jesus Christ. These values are as expressed in the Scriptures and in the practices, worship and doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church, as determined from time to time by the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Christchurch.”

Upcoming Events

Term 2 is proving to be a very busy term.  Our senior students are busy with their Science Fair experiments and have thoroughly enjoyed the Science focus this year.  There is great excitement in the junior school with their Discovery Learning.  ”Is today Discovery day?” “Yay!” – both often heard by our 5 and 6 year olds.

At our last board meeting I reported on student achievement in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.  The quality of teaching and learning is high and the board expressed their pleasure at the results.

Congratulations to our Zone Cross Country Team who participated in the competition recently – 25% of our team has qualified for the Centrals Competition.

Our grateful thanks to Couplands for their kind donation last week of a loaf of bread for each student in our school.  Much appreciated by all who ate it.

Kindest regards

Suzi
