As part of our 2014 Mandarin Classes we’ve been very fortunate to have two calligraphy workshops with Stan Chan. The first was primarily concerned with Chinese Characters and the second a little more pictorial. Room 5 also did some further work with Mary R and their stunning results are on show in the admin area. We are very fortunate to be allocated a new Mandarin Learning Assistant for 2015 to enable us to keep learning not just the language, but also aspects of Chinese life and culture.
We are encouraging students to take books home from our school library for “keeping on reading” during the holiday break. The last day for borrowing is Tuesday 16th from 8.30 a.m. Parents are welcome to browse with their child/ren.
Thank you to the students and their families who have donated food for the Food Bank or St Vincent de Paul and small gifts for those less fortunate than ourselves. Senior students have wrapped the gifts and they will be sent away next week.
Congratulations to our students from Otari Parish who received First Communion on Sunday: Marie-Claire , Lily , Isla, Rachael, Isabella , Ben , Darcy, Jimmy and Ciara. Many blessings to you and your families.
Our team participated well in the recent meet at Newtown Park, Well done to Zoe and Alyssa representing us and the WZ at the Wellington event Tuesday 25th. Many thanks to the adults supporting our athletes on both days.
