Dear Parents

It is hard to believe that Term 1 is nearly at an end. It has been very busy with swimming and athletics, and I wish to thank all parents who have been able to assist in some way this term. Please have a safe and happy holiday and we look forward to seeing you all in Term 2.
As part of our Holy Week preparation, please assist your child to take part in our Lenten Offering.
Well done to all the children who took part in the Southland Athletics last Saturday and ‘good luck’ to Eric Cahill & Sam Thornbury who are taking part in the Southland Swimming Champs this weekend.

Welcome
To Sarah Phillipson and Ethan McIntyre who joined the children in Room 2 this week. We hope they enjoy their time with us.

School Easter Liturgy
Parents and families are welcome to join us as we tell the Easter story next Thursday afternoon beginning at 1.30pm in the hall.
We look forward to sharing the story with you.

Thank you for your support of our Lenten fund raising effort. The children have suggested some of the following ideas: Mow the lawns for aunty and uncle, have a car wash at home, do jobs around the house, do the washing instead of my sister doing it, sweep up leaves, do jobs at home like folding the washing, sell stuff you’ve grown out of, a garage sale, do the cobwebs, clean outside of house with hose, do the gardening, clean the windows, hang out the washing, help my aunty at work….. There were many other ideas!
Some money has already started to come in, so well done and thank you! Wednesday next week is the final day to bring the Lenten Offerings in. We should be able to let everyone know how much we have raise for the “Holy Childhood Association” at the Easter Liturgy.

Reconciliation Rite 2
This will be celebrated in Sacred Heart Church on Tuesday 30th March at 7 pm.

Interviews
These will be held on Tuesday 27th & Wednesday 28th April. School will close on Tuesday at 12.30pm.
This year we are trialling a new system for interviews/reports, especially in Rooms 1 – 6. The children from these rooms will have received a note requesting a 15 or 30 minute interview. This is so we can have the usual 3-way interview to discuss children’s goals and an additional parent/teacher session to discuss progress and achievement. Forms will be in the junior corridor on Tuesday for you to book a time that suits you best.

Activity Fee
Thank you to the parents who have already paid the Activity Fee and compulsory books. We are able to write ‘donation’ on the receipt, for parents wanting to settle this before the 31st March for tax purposes.

Fun Athletics afternoon for Rooms 5, 6, 7
Rooms 5, 6 & 7 are planning to have a fun athletics afternoon on Tuesday, March 30 at 1:30pm. We require some parent help please.

Next we downloaded the photos onto the computer and made a slideshow. Then we went onto comic life and made a page of a comic book. My title was ‘close ups’ and my partners title was ‘colours.’ We got to choose the colour of the background. We had morning tea and lunch there. It was really fun ~ By Jake

Dear Parents

We have had a very exiting week with the Ranfurly Shield at school on Wednesday and Room 6 at Enrich today.
Congratulations and good luck to all the children who are representing the school at the Southland Athletics tomorrow at Surrey Park. I am sure you will all have a great time.
I look forward to seeing you all at Mass on Sunday and the PTA picnic afterwards.

Welcome ~ To Kade Phillips who joined the children in Room 1 on Monday. We hope he enjoys his time with us.

Prayers ~ Our thoughts and prayers are with Mrs Buxton and Mrs Stanley at this time.

SUNDAY MASS – THIS SUNDAY – 21 MARCH 10.30AM
As stated in the last three school newsletters, our school will be joining in the parish Mass this Sunday, followed by the school picnic. All Sacred Heart children are expected to attend. Once a term we come together to share in a Sunday Mass. This is an opportunity for the children to see that they are part of both the school and also the wider school/parish community. The children are to line up in mufti (due to the picnic afterwards) in the school foyer by 10.15am. Thank you for your support in this.

For the final two weeks of Lent leading up to Easter, we would, with your support, like to encourage the children to take part in some fund raising activities to raise money to send to the “Holy Childhood Association”. This Association is a “Pontifical Mission” under the auspices of the Pope. The Holy Childhood Association uses funds to help missionaries to spread the Gospel of Jesus and to provide food, clean water, clothes, books, medicine and schools for those in need, due to either poverty or disaster. Their motto is “Children Helping Children”.
Between now and Easter, we are suggesting that the children make an effort to do something to earn some money which they would then donate to the Holy Childhood Association. There may be some jobs at home or for Nana/Grandad/ Aunty/Uncle/neighbour…Some suggestions are:
Clean the family car, vacuuming, clean windows, do the dishes, dusting, stacking wood, tidying the yard, weeding, donating part of their pocket money or money they may currently get for doing their regular chores….

We would like the children to think about some jobs they could do and on Monday at assembly, they can share some of their ideas.
The note at the end of the newsletter could be used to show any person the children may offer their services to.

School Blog
As most classes have or will have blogs running to show students work, can you please let me know if you do not want your child’s photo published.

All Bus Children ~ On Tuesday 23rd March the buses will leave school at 12.30 pm, due to the PPTA High School Union stop work meeting. Parents will need to organise alternative transport for their children on this day. Please phone the school if you would like your child put on the bus at 12.30 pm.

In Room 8 we have been doing art. We have drawn gardens. They are all going perfectly well, except for the red dye spilling on the ground…Woops!!!
By Bree

In Room 8 Mr Herrick, the policeman, came in. He taught us about road safety and what the kerb Drill was. By Bree and Jessica

Here is what the Kerb Drill is…..

STOP
• at a good place to cross
• one step back from the kerb
• and stand up straight
LOOK
• all ways (traffic can come from)
• for traffic
LISTEN
• as we are looking
• for traffic that is hidden
DECIDE
• to cross – without hesitation – cross straight, not diagonal – take two careful looks as we cross
• to wait – if you decide to wait you will need to start the Kerb Drill Again.

On Wednesday Alex Ryan and Matt Saunders came to school to show the Ranfurly Shield. Alex and Matt are from the Southland Stags. At the end all of the classes had a photo taken with the shield, here is ours. By Renee C

PTA

At SACRED HEART SCHOOL we are trying to earn some money to send to the Holy Childhood Association. This is a worldwide association which uses funds to help missionaries to spread the Gospel of Jesus and to provide food, clean water, clothes, books, medicine and schools for those in need, due to either poverty or disaster.
We would appreciate the chance to earn some money doing some jobs. All money earned would go to this fundraising effort. Thank you.

Swimming
I am learning how to swim with my Aunty. I can make my arms turn in big circles and kick using a board. I am learning to do freestyle. I am enjoying swimming because I am getting better and better. Antony

Painting
I have learned how to make paint darker by putting in a little black or purple to make a shade. We learned to make tints by adding a little white. We painted green apples using shading and tinting. It was fun. They look
great on our wall. Finley

Athletics
Clap! People’s arms were pumping. People were running so fast that you could hardly see them. I was running as fast as my legs could go. With the finishing line coming up it felt like I was a train that had travelled a thousand miles. Kayne

Bean Seeds ( Inquiry)
We are growing bean seeds. They have sprouted leaves, stems and roots. The tallest plant is 21cm and that’s Caelan’s. We grew them in cotton wool and watered them. They have grown with the water and food from inside the seed. Now the leaves are collecting sunshine to make food to grow. My seed is now growing in the ground outside Room 7. I hope that it grows and we can eat the beans next spring. Kayla

Room 9 Class Happenings

The Sharks
Today’s the day, the day they come!
Today the Sharks are coming to teach us some skills about basketball. The Sharks are the new Southland Basketball Team that is competing in the NBL. Today we meet one guy, his name is James and he comes from the North Island.
When the Sharks came, we were ready to go until Richard started picking on Keegan and Georgia. You’re probably wondering who Richard is. He is the coach of the Sharks and is the Southland Development Officer. When we had to dribble back and forwards he said silly stuff like goat or boy.
When we were shooting we had to imagine that there was a transformer or fairy on top of the hoop. James is really tall. He is as tall as the hoop at our school.
There is a game where you have to be on the painted lines and you aren’t allowed to go on the concrete. We had to go back and forwards and we were not allowed to walk or run [it was really hard for Keegan and Georgia]. By Keegan, Tom and Jack N

FitnessRun
Zoooooooom!!!! Where did Keegan come from?

Everyday Room 9 does a run around the school, we call this a fitness run. We do a run everyday to get fit for the Saints Zones Athletics Sport. Keegan is the fittest in the school, he’s good at running long distance and he wins most of the time.
At the end of the run Mrs Lieshout tells us our times. When we get back to our class we write our times in our maths books and graph it (Keegan’s time is under 4 minutes for 2 rounds). We use line graphs to record our times from our fitness run.

We have to train for relays, long distance runs and sprints at All Saints Day. When we run we try to beat our personal times, if we beat our time we must be getting quicker by seconds. By Braedon, Sam H and Ronan

PTA
PTA oyster raffle, please remember to keep selling this raffle. This is our major fundraiser for this term and this raffle should appeal to lots of people.
Some ideas on where they could be sold: dad’s /granddad’s/ nana’s / mum’s work, sports practice / sidelines at rugby/ touch etc.
Get the kids together and knock on the neighbour’s doors. It’s a great way to meet people in the community around us. Please make an effort to sell these tickets, we don’t often have raffles and it’s for all our Sacred Heart Children.

Self Defence Course for Girls yr 7, 8 &9 by registered instructor Sarah Anderson.
Sunday 14th March, Sacred Heart Hall, 10am – 4pm. $20.00

CALLING ALL PARENTS AT SACRED HEART SCHOOL ROOM 9 NEEDS YOUR HELP

In Inquiry we have been learning about rules, what are they and why we have them?
We are trying to make the car park a safer and problem free place. We will need to take photos and videos of what is happening in the car park between 8:15 and 8:55 in the morning and between 2:45 and 3:15. We have made a survey on Survey Pirate.com to see what people think about the car park.
We need proof that there is a problem so we can report on what the problem or problems are.

We have made videos of the car park to see what we need to act on and improve on in our car park to make it a safer place for kids and parents.

If we have proof that there is a problem, we will need a solution to try to fix some of the problems in the car park. Then it will be a better place for years and years to come.

By Emily, Meg and Ashleigh

Please help us gather information about the car park by doing this online survey at the following web address.

http://www.surveypirate.com/Survey.aspx?surveyid=12250&hash=6fXSCJSZ4ysTL7dmacauzA%3d%3d
If you don’t have the internet we have some hard copies of the survey in Room 9, or you can come in and use a classroom computer.

Room 5 Class Happenings

As a class we have been learning how to write recounts.
This week we have been writing about times we hurt ourselves.

When I was seven I was helping mum and Brent with the wood.
When we had finished I got wood stuck in my eye. I felt sad because I couldn’t open my eye and I started to cry. I had to go to the hospital to get the wood out of my eye. ~ By: Claire

When I went to Nana and Pop Pops we went to the river. When I was at the river I slipped. I hurt my knee on some rocks. I didn’t cry but I got a bruise on my knee. ~ By: Ethan

When I was 4 years old I fell off my bike. I got stone stuck under my knee. I was screaming because it hurt so much. I had to get a cold ice pack on my knee. It was not fun. I was bleeding, it was running down my knee. Mum got the stones out of my knee. ~ By: Jakobe
