St Patrick's Day

St Patrick, our Patron Saint... 100 prayers per day. From being kidnapped at 16 and taken to Ireland as a slave, to becoming a missionary and bishop who established monasteries, schools and churches throughout Ireland. What an amazing Patron Saint!

Hooray! We have a Sacred Space

On the first day back at school, we noticed that we had a brand new sacred garden. This is a special place where we can go to pray and spend time with God.
There are two metal benches with wooden seat for us to sit on. There are three concrete plinths and one has the RNDM cross on it. This is for the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions. On the middle plinth there is a beautiful painted tile which has green New Zealand hills and a koru sign (growth) with the Trinity.
On the third plinth there is our school motto - Fidelis. There are also three trees.
This sacred space was gifted to our school by the Mission sisters, when they celebrated their 150 year jubilee.
We are very proud of this beautiful place for us to visit. Thank you Sister Lorraine and all the other Mission Sisters.

Our Digital Footprints...

Here are our digital footprints...we wrote down EVERYWHERE we went online and then thought about whether it was a positive footprint or a one we needed to think about.

We were quite surprised at where we went on line.

Where do you go on line?
