Holy Week Story

On Holy Thursday Kereru Class presented the story of Holy Week to the rest of the school.
It was a huge responsibility and the students rose to the occasion.
They were reverent, mature and very respectful.
Ms Hampson was super proud!

Jesus prays alone
Jesus is crucified
Jesus is buried and rises from the dead
Jesus talks to his followers

Swimming Sports

The day started out sunny but very cold in the morning until you swam.  Everyone did at least did two strokes. It ended out to be a very fun day.
By Lydia

I found it fun because I was in a great group of ten year old girls. To me was not about the placing, it was about the fun in it .
By Hannah

There were two groups, one for the year 0 to 4 and the other for 8 years old to year 8s. I had a great time because everyone was supporting and clapping for each other.
