Dear Parents
Welcome back to Term 2 at Level 2, it has certainly been an interesting couple of months as the country has dealt with the fall out from the Covid-19 pandemic.

School has returned to normal with some minor changes. Some are temporary, others we hope will continue into the future.

  • It has been a good restart to school but we have noticed we have a lot of very tired and increasingly stressed children which is very understandable. Getting back to the routines of school will help with this and  the occasional sleep-in  if needed.

  • Contact tracing is compulsory at present – all parents / visitors are to sign in and out of school.

  • Use of sanitise and rigorous hand washing will continue as will sending home any children coughing, sneezing or with runny noses. 

  • Drop off and pick ups before and after school is working well and we will continue this until the end of the term at least.  This is why we have asked all children to stay off the playground equipment after school.

  • At present we don’t know what the future will hold for any school sport or cultural events but it is presumed most will be cancelled in the interim.

  • There will be a Teachers Only Days on Friday 19th June.

  • We will hold parent interviews on the 29 & 30th June. There will be an online booking  system for this.

Please look at this article from the Catholic Education Office, there are some nice photos of our school and a request for contact details from the Office for all our families.

Brett Hamilton – Board Chair
Hello everyone, I hope you and your family have come through lock down ok and are doing as well as can be expected, Unbelievable in this day and age that we would see the world struck down with a pandemic that man kind could not cure. Thanks for supporting Peter and the team with the policies that the school has in place to reduce the risk of spread within the school should there be an unlikely outbreak of Covid 19.  Thanks to Peter and staff for setting up and persevering with the distance learning content, the board have received only positive feedback on this was rolled out.

The Sacred Heart School Board has considerable ambition with the grounds around the school and have had a couple of attempts at working bees to spruce up and development the outdoor environment however these haven’t eventuated due to either weather or lack of interest. Going forward if you have an  interest with the development of this environment please text your number to 0274323018.

A couple of days prior to undertake a task we will send a group text out as to what we are doing and if it suits you will be welcome to participate. Some of the tasks the board have in mind are securely fencing all the school boundaries, creating a fitness track around the perimeter of the east field which will also double as a dry track for those family’s accessing school from Northwood, fitting new basketball hoop back board. The list goes on! Keen to hear from those wanting to help.

Take care out there and which catch up in the future.
Many thanks Brett

Laudato Si 
It is an inspirational letter from Pope Frances that calls for us to examine our hearts, transform our social values and take action for global solidarity. The encyclical captures the interconnectedness of social, economic and environmental justice in building and protecting Our Common Home.

Dear Parents
It has been an interesting week with the first case of COVID-19 in Invercargill and a lot of uncertainty around how the border shutdown will affect our economy going forward. In the education system there has been a lot of discussion around the pros and cons of closing schools to help prevent the possible spread of the virus. At this point in time there has been no move to do this which I agree with.

Most schools have been discussing how to provide online or home based learning in the advent of school closures and I would ask ALL families to please complete this survey to give us some information about home networks. The link is below:

Distance Learning Survey

COVID-19 Update
Here is the latest information from the Ministry in Invercargill about COVID-19.

With so much information and misinformation swirling around about COVID-19, I wanted to share with you what will happen if we were to have a case in our school community. We have been planning for this and are in a position to respond quickly.

As soon as a case is confirmed in our immediate school community (eg. a student, staff member, or member of their household), the Medical Officer of Health and Ministry of Education will inform me about this, and we will work together to get quick and clear messaging out to you

  • If there was a case confirmed of someone in our school, we will likely be asked to close temporarily by the Medical Officer of Health. This will allow time for close contacts to be traced, appropriate testing to be undertaken, and a careful clean of the school to be undertaken.
  • If our school does need to close temporarily, we will have a plan in place to support student’s learning.

We know COVID-19 feels scary and of course people are concerned for the wellbeing of our children. Please be assured that with no case confirmed in our school, your children are safe here.
 
Good hygiene is a priority at our school, and we are reinforcing this regularly with all students and staff. We know that practicing good hygiene is still the best thing we can all do to prevent illness.
 
We are getting the most up to date advice and guidance so that we can confidently make informed decisions about the safety and wellbeing of our school community.

The Gospel for the Third Week of Lent John 4:5-42
Jesus reveals himself to the Samaritan woman at the well.

In Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman, we learn about the fullness of God’s mercy. The woman is a Samaritan, and Samaritans were people with whom observant Jews had no contact. She is also an outcast in Samaritan society. Yet Jesus reaches out to this woman and brings her hope and a new knowledge God.


Let’s pray for the outcast in our society. May we and others have the courage to reach out to them and like Jesus bring mercy and hope.

Jesus heals the man born blind and reveals himself to him as the Son of Man.

Young people today are often bombarded with so much stimulation that it is easy for them to miss what is right in front of their eyes. This Sunday’s Gospel reminds us that Jesus helps us see what is truly important in life.

Pope Francis 2019 The courage to take a risk for God’s promise
“The Lord’s call … it is the loving initiative whereby God encounters us and invites us to be part of a great undertaking.  … Every vocation is a summons not to stand on the shore, nets in hand, but to follow Jesus on the path he has marked out for us, for our own happiness and for the good of those around us.”

Welcome back to a new year at Sacred Heart School. A big thanks to the families who were able to join us last weekend for our Mass and school opening. It was good to have Bishop Michael here to bless the school for us.

We have started the year with 97 children which is down on previous years. While we advertise in local pre-schools and kindergartens,  parent recommendations count a lot when new parents are looking around schools.

Working Bee
The Working Bee planned for tomorrow has been postponed till further notice. Thanks to those parents who replied that they could help. We will let you know when another date has been set.

Patrick Joseph Moran was Born in Rathdrum, County Wicklow, Ireland in May 1823. He was ordained a priest in 1847 and served in Dublin until 1856. In 1856 he was consecrated bishop and sent to South Africa. At 33 he was the youngest Bishop in world at that time.

Week 8: December 2nd – 6th     1st Week of Advent – Hope
6th St Nicolas
On the first Sunday of Advent, the first purple candle (symbolising hope) on the advent wreath is lit. This candle is typically called the “Prophecy Candle” in remembrance of the prophets, primarily Isaiah, who foretold the birth of Christ.

Pope Francis Prayer That every country determines to take the necessary measures to make the future of the very young, especially those who suffer, a priority.

Let’s pray this week in the first week of Advent for those children who have nothing and suffer in slavery.

Yes there are an estimated 152 million children in forced labour throughout the world today. Millions of those children are slaves.

O God, when we hear of children and adults being deceived and taken to unknown places for purposes of sexual exploitation, forced labour, and organ ‘harvesting’, our hearts are saddened and our spirits angry that their dignity and rights are ignored through threats, lies, and force. We cry out against the evil practice of this modern slavery and pray for it to end. Give us wisdom and courage to reach out and stand up for those whose bodies, hearts and spirits have been so wounded, so that together we may make real your promises to fill these sisters and brothers with a love that is tender and good. Give them hope. Send the exploiters away empty-handed to be converted from this wickedness and help us all to claim the freedom that is your gift to your children. Amen

Lost and Found Clothing
Below is a photo of the huge amount of clothing in our lost and found bin. Please come and have a look to check if anything belongs to your child. Most items are unnamed, which makes it extremely difficult to find the owner. N.B All unclaimed items will be taken to the Vincent de Paul shop next week.  

Mission Fair
On Tuesday the 3rd of December, we are having an in-school Mission Fair. This is a child-focussed market. The purpose of the fair is to give the children the opportunity to follow the process of manufacturing something and then finding out how to sell and purchase items. Classes are in the process of preparing small crafts to sell during the afternoon. Items will sell for up to $1. The money raised will go to our Missions – including the World Vision girl we have sponsored for over 10 years now. 
The children are to wear their sports uniform and bring a small amount of change to purchase items. Thank you for your support with this.

Congratulations to Cookie Le who was our Charism winner last week, and to the children who received certificates. 

Basketball

A big thanks to the coaches and supporters, without your help we would not be able to field teams in these competitions. Your assistance is much appreciated.

Well done to our Year 5/6 girls, who were placed 3rd overall.

And to our Year 3/4 mixed team, who were unbeaten all season, then went down by 2 in the final seconds.

A Long Walk Picton to Bluff
Tim Adams fulfils his longtime dream of walking from Picton to Bluff to raise funds for the Cancer Society of New Zealand in honour of his grandfather. 
A walk as long as the South Island. I am Tim Adams and I am going to walk from Picton to Bluff to make a difference! I will walk the length of the South Island of New Zealand to raise funds for the Cancer Society of New Zealand.
I will be carrying photos given to me by family friends and strangers, of those affected by Cancer – they will be walking the distance with me. One of the photos I am carrying is of my Grandad who suffered from lung cancer and passed away when I was twelve years old.
I would love to carry a photo of anyone who has been affected by Cancer. I would also love to hear their stories of the loved ones in the photos and share them during my walk. I will be posting my planned routes on social media and inviting people to walk parts of the journey with me. I want to get my message out so more people can help support the Cancer Society with my journey.
Start date: Saturday, 30 November 2019 Duration: Approximately 23 days Distance: Approximately 960km Distance to walk per day: Approximately 41.7km
Why I am walking a.k.a Cancer sucks!
I am thirty five years old and I have been affected by Cancer. Since I was in my early twenties I have wanted to complete a long walk to raise money for the Cancer Society of New Zealand.
I served in the New Zealand Army for almost a decade. Being a soldier walking and marching becomes your bread-and-butter daily routine. You learn to dig deep and to carry on when the going gets tough. I have been training in recent weeks and I have built a substantial support system from my family and friends but also from partners and sponsors all over New Zealand who have become involved in a variety of ways, and the list of helpers is growing every week.
Like so many others in New Zealand who are affected by this disease, I have lost family and friends and I have been denied the opportunity to meet some really great people because they left us much too soon.
My first experience with cancer was when my Grandad had been diagnosed with lung cancer in his late fifties. I was only twelve years old when he passed. I am not alone in this experience; approximately ninety percent of the population is affected physically or emotionally by the big C.
“Late last year a very good friend shared with me about their family member who was struggling with this cruel disease. That person, who I was not lucky enough to meet, ignited a fire to get me off my arse and finally do the walk.”
This is the year! Together we are stronger and together we can help one another!
