Junior School Palm Sunday Presentation
Thank you to the junior school who enacted Palm Sunday for us in mass this morning. Palm Sunday is when Jesus arrives in Jerusalem and is welcomed by the crowds who proclaim Him as King. This is only a few days before He is arrested and crucified.
The dramatic events of Holy Week lead up to the centre and most important feast in Christianity which is the Resurrection on Easter Sunday.
During this week the children will be enacting several aspects of Holy Week:
- On Wednesday at 2.30 pm the Year 6s will be performing their Easter song followed by the Year 5s presenting "Washing of the Feet" and the Last Supper at 2.40pm.
- On Thursday at 2.30 pm the Year 8s will lead the Stations of the Cross in the hall.
We welcome all families to these remembrances. As these are very solemn events re-enacting the time before Jesus died, we will leave the hall in complete silence on Wednesday and Thursday. Please help us by also maintaining this silence.
Congratulations to our year 5/6 Rippa Team who won last week's North Otago Rippa Tournament
The team will progress to the regional tournament.
It was great this morning to spot Hannes, Andrew, John and Levi playing a good old fashioned card game before school.
God bless and aroha
