The theme for this year's competition was 'Home for Good' "linking in with the Caritas 2019 resource focus of South Sudan and the issue of displacement and the challenges faced by millions around the world who have no home".  www.caritas.org.nz

Congratulations to the following students for their success in the Senior section of the competition:

Well done girls, we are proud of your abilities and success.


Feast Day Artwork

Following Mass, which was celebrated by Cardinal John Dew, our Feast Day artwork was unveiled and blessed.  This year this is a set of Rosary Beads which were designed and created by Nikki Payne.  Each form class was assigned a bead and together they made the Rosary.  We are so pleased with the result and the beads hang proudly on the wall in the Lawson Foyer.  They will be a constant reminder of Mary our Mother and her love for us.
