Our Senior School Samoan Group helps local hospitals to celebrate Pasifika Week. The girls performed to a high standard at both Middlemore Hospital and at Manukau Super Clinic.
We pray for our Year 4 children as they continue on their journey of faith and prepare for their Confirmation and First Holy Communion this term.
Confirmation Date: Thursday 12th June
First Holy Communion Date: Sunday 15th June
Kia Ora, Namaste, Talofa Lava and Greetings to our Te Matauranga Whanau!
Our School Value for Term 2 is: COMPASSION. Please share with your child about how the value of compassion is shown in your family and at home.
We bring you our first syndicate newsletter online. All future syndicate communications will be posted here on our Te Matauranga web page. Watch this space!
Term 2 is short with only 9 Weeks and our children have been busy setting goals and working hard to reach their academic targets. This term our school reading incentive programme is well underway. Children who reach their reading target at the end of the term will be rewarded with an Icecream OR Subway Lunch OR Free Movie Pass depending on their reading level. So Parents, please make sure your child is reading every day at home.
CONGRATULATIONS to our Year 4 children who made their First Reconciliation on Tuesday 13th May. We pray for them as they continue their faith journey and prepare for their Sacrament of Confirmation and First Holy Communion.
In Week 7, we will have an exciting trip to the Auckland Zoo as part of our Social Sciences topic on Resources and Occupations. A trip notice will come home in Week 4.
A reminder about our school uniform policy – Please ensure your child is wearing the CORRECT WINTER UNIFORM and it is worn with pride! Children also need to bring their CORRECT PE GEAR to school everyday for fitness and gymnastics this term.
Yours In Christ
Mrs Anitelea (Room 10), Mrs Julius (Room 9), Mrs Jansen (Room 8)
