End of Year Prizegiving and Mass
We are celebrating the formal wrap-up of our school year this evening with mass, a leaving ceremony for the year 8s and prize-giving at 6.00 pm in the Basilica. All children in year 4+ are expected to attend in their summer uniform and should line up with their classes at the west end of the school playground at 5.45 pm. Junior children are most welcome to attend but we understand they are very tired and if they are not attending with older siblings, you could choose to keep them at home.
Our final assembly is on Friday at 12.00 pm where the year 8 leaders for 2017 will be announced. We will farewell our teachers Paul Cartlidge, Stephanie Mann-O'Malley and Jan Plieger, Tina Souness our Sports Coordinator and Ann Dooley who is stepping down from full time teaching to part time and finish with carols together as we end our school year for 2016. Assembly will finish at 12.30 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
I will write to you towards the end of the holidays to give you information about 2017. School starts on Tuesday 31st January at 9.00 am.
Have a safe and happy holiday with your families and enjoy the peace and love of Christmas.
God bless and aroha
Lorraine Frances-Rees, Principal
