After a true team effort the following girls scored goals throughout the day: Amelia, Jessie, Jaylene, Nikita, Erika and Ruby. Those who played in the goalkeeper position are also to be commended with Mary-Rose, Aarushi and Alexandra working hard to keep the ball from making its mark! Congratulations to both teams for their amazing positive attitude and fun! Thank you to the parents who helped transport other students and assisted on the day.
Faith in Action Presentation: This term, as a part of our school Mission Goal, each grade has had the opportunity to unpack the scripture passage John 13:34-35. Not only have the students been able to identify the key message of the passage but they have also been able to reflect the message through their actions. After Recess on Friday June 28, each grade will be presenting their response to the whole school. The children who are a part of our Faith In Action team (FIAT) will be leading this presentation with Miss Sharleen Espiritu (our FIAT leader). Everyone is warmly invited to this presentation to witness how each grade has responded to this Scripture.
Thank you to Stage 2 students for beautifully and reverently leading the school in our celebration of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

It was a great success!
