As we approach Holy Week we remember those in Vanuatu, the victims of the cyclone and those there to help. Our prayer service for Holy Week is on Tuesday at 9.15 in St Thomas More Church.
This week our Year 7-8s have been taking part in the first series of their Technology programme at NIS. They have been developing their skills in four technology areas: food, hard materials, art and digital technologies. Feedback to us indicates positive attitudes from our tamariki towards their work and application of knowledge and skills in classes.
As part of our commitment to the arts, over this two weeks all classes are attending Capital E Arts Festival performances. The Juniors were hugely impressed by their three shows, Carnival of the Animals, Squaring the Wheel and Guji, Guji !
This term’s “Walk to School Day” coincided with the wider “Walk to Work Day” so we were a part of something community wide. Thanks to those who made the effort to take part in walking all or part of the way to school; also to the many people worked long and hard on their beautifully whacky or gorgeous hats.
Andrew Chinn’s day with us was a great success. As always, we were impressed with his enthusiasm, his amazing facility to actively involve students throughout the day and to remember their names; but even better was our engagement with his mainly scripture based songs and music. Thanks Andrew.
