Most schools from the Western area of Wellington took part in the netball tournament at Hataitai Courts on Tuesday. Many thanks to Sarah and Barb for their team management and umpiring. It was a great day.
“Brr it’s freezing out here” I said while trembling off the bus over to where everyone was meeting. After going over rules, our exciting day began. There were a few tough games and then again there were some easy games. I had such a fun day. Lilly
The whistles blew, the balls bounced. There were some ups and downs, some nice teams and bad teams but no matter the whole experience was amazing, nothing can compare. My mind will never forget the start of gathering schools and the cheers as each school entered. Maddie
Our Book Fair is a great success.
Estelle and the student librarians have set the books out and decorated the hall and beautifully. Students and their families, and even a few parishioners have been browsing and buying from the wide range on display. Our book character parade showed style and creativity. Both the senior and junior book quizzes were a challenge for students.
As part of their current Social Studies topic, Rm 5 students at Cardinal McKeefry School have invited some people to come and share about the ways they help in the community. As a result of discussion following a talk from one of our parents who volunteers at the Catacombs Drop in Centre, Yrs 3-4 decided to donate a range of food and cleaning goods for use there.
Visits to and from really interesting people who help in our community are a highlight of the current topic of study for our Yr 1- 4 students. Dr Kim was a big hit with our Year 1 class!
Excellent to see some of our former students in the cast for St Patrick’s College recent musical, Guys and Dolls. It was another great show!
