On Wednesday night as a school we supported Mr Aberhart and our Pasifika students at the launch of the Talanoa Project for our cluster. Special mention to Sam, Tara and Yasmine from our class who performed special Samoan songs that they have learnt during their Samoan nest. So impressed with the students who came along to support ... We were so graceful and represented OLV well!

So far this term we have been learning more about the Holy Spirit within our R.E. programme. We have learnt a lot about the Holy Spirit and the importance of it when we are baptised. As a family, maybe you would like to discuss at home what we know about the Holy Spirit and an important part it plays in our Catholic faith.
Being ANZAC day, we realised as a class that we needed to find out why it is an important day to commemorate and the history behind the day. From here, Room 7 picked a particular part of World War I they would like to know more about went about researching their key questions which related to their topic. Topics researched included transport, soldiers, the animals and Gallipoli. We then chose the best way to share our research back to the class, videos were made as well as posters. Overall, we learnt more about our country's history and loved guiding our own research.
On the 25th of April we celebrated ANZAC day was a parish community. We were lucky enough to have members from the New Zealand Army to lead us in our liturgy. This included Liam's mum Nicky and even Miss K-Henry's dad. Here are some pictures from our liturgy and our class with our school's crosses.
