Dear Parents

It is hard to believe tomorrow is the last day of Term 1.
It has been a very busy term with swimming, athletics and summer sport.
Also for most of the term we had builders here working on the veranda.
Next term will be our school production “Moving On“ to be held on July 6 & 7th at Centrestage.
Well done to Conor Riley – 2nd in the 10 yr Boys Discus and Alex Wright – 2nd in the 8 yr Boys 100m at the Southland Athletic Champs recently.
Also to Rohan McKenzie who made the Southland Touch Team.

A big thank you to the parents, who have coached, managed, supported or transported children at sports, academic or cultural events during the term.
Thank you for your input into the school interviews this week.
The on-line booking system seemed to work ok and there weren’t a lot of hold-ups. This is really helpful, as some teachers had over 8 hours of interviews.
If you have any comments on how we could enhance them in the future, please contact me at principal@shsinv.school.nz

This week we welcome Keara Paraki, Cole Robertson and Antoinette & Margaret Mendoza. We hope they enjoy their time at Sacred Heart School.

Our prayers are with the Dawson family.

Room 2 Class Happenings

We have been learning to use the laptops. We have learned how to carefully carry the laptops, how to turn them on and how to log in to Room 2.

We have also learned that you only use one finger at a time on the mousepad, otherwise it doesn’t work, and you click the mousepad at the bottom. We practised using the mousepad in Photo Booth, and made some really silly photos. Some of them are up on our classroom door for you to see.

We have also been learning about talking bubbles and thinking bubbles, and we have used this knowledge to make a comic of ourselves. Here are some examples:
