Dear Parents

This has been a busy week with the many activities and it continues tonight with the disco and our final term assembly tomorrow afternoon.

I thank you all for your support this term.  We have had lots of parents helping with sports, cultural and other school events and I wish to thank you again for your work with our children.

Thank you also to the parents and community who have supported the class Masses this term. It is always great to have you join us.

Unfortunately we farewell Ms Hoskin today. We thank her for her input into our school and children and wish her luck with her new venture.

Our prayers are with the O’Connor family.

School Mass ~ Thank you to Mrs Winders and Fr. Jacob for our school Mass last Sunday. A special thanks to all our great readers and singers who contributed.

Room 6 Mass ~ Thank you to all those who were able to attend the Room 6 class Mass yesterday.  It was lovely to have you all there.  I am sure you are all as proud as I am of the children.  Their readings, singing and general behaviour are a credit to you.  Many thanks ~ Mrs Buxton.

Mercy Day ~ On Tuesday we celebrated our family order of the Mercy sisters with a prayer liturgy followed by a sausage sizzle. Thank you to the PTA for providing this, and thank you to the children for donating cans to the Southland Foodbank.

Convent Cup ~ Well done to all the teams and coaches who took part at the Convent Cup on Monday at Verdon College. All teams played well with our basketball team placed 2ndand our rugby and netball teams in 3rd place.

FAITH  FACT FOR WEEK 9  ~  People of God

A biblical image for the Church popularised by the Secon Vatican Council.  The image of the People of God emphasises that we are saved, not as indivicuals, but as a community – laity, religious and clergy – share in the three fold mission of Christ as prophet, priest and king.

Room 1 Class Happenings

On Tuesday we finished off our final science rotation.  Here are some children’s recounts of the day.

I made pudding yesterday, and I felt happy because I went to Room 2 and broke ice cubes.  I did dancing raisins and it was fun.  We got a coke bottle and put lollies in it.  It went up to the tree and it was very fun.  Oliver 

We did some science, we went with our house teams.  My favourite thing was making the bag explode, and I made coke explode.  The less mentos you put in, the higher the coke goes.  The more mentos you put in, the lower the coke goes.  I felt happy.  Alex 

We did science in the classrooms.  We exploded coke bottles and we made pudding, and sherbet and we made dancing raisins.  My favourite thing was exploding the coke bottle because it went higher than the tree.  Rohan 

Yesterday to finish off our science week rotations, we had  ‘Kids Can Cook’ come and show how science can be in the kitchen.  It was great to see the children giving things a taste.  Tyler from Room 2 made an excellent sous chef, and I can see that we might have some budding chefs in the making!

FAITH  FACT FOR WEEK 8 ~ Rituals

The word ritual generally means set ways of doing things.  In religious terms therefore one of its meanings is virtually identical to that of rite.  Ritual can also mean the whole body of rites in use in the church.  Thus there is a text called the Roman Ritual which lays down general principles for worship in the Catholic Church.

Lost Jersey ~ We are still looking for Shaun Clapperton’s lost jersey and urge parents to check their child is wearing the correct one.
FAITH  FACT FOR WEEK 7 – Social Action
Social Action is correcting the structures that perpetuate the need. Another name for this is Social Justice. Through the lens of social justice, we begin to take a look at the problems and issues facing us in our own communities, the nation and finally the world, and we begin to ask questions such as, “Why is there so much unemployment in our area?” “Why are there so many poor in our community?” “How will the deforestation of our rain forests affect our global climate?” etc. Very often when you are performing social service, you also become involved in solving the problem which created the need in the first place, and the two are closely related and often blend together. An example of this would be, someone comes to your food pantry, and tells you he/she has no food, because he/she lost their job recently. You may know of an employer looking to hire someone right away for a job requiring little or no skills. You give that person food, then place that person in touch with the employer. You then would have solved both problems for that person. (a) The immediate need of food through an act of charity (social service) and (b) you would have corrected the problem, which created and perpetuated the need. (social justice).

Funny Dad
My Dad gives me kisses,
And he hisses.
I like going to the shop,
We brought a balloon and it went pop!
He has blue eyes,
And he has a little bit of hair dye.
He is fun,
And shares his bun.
He gives me hugs,
And we find bugs.
He is cool
And he takes me to the pool.

Class Happenings
In Room 9 we have been researching and writing reports and persuasive arguments. Here are two examples.
We have also produced videos and news reports, please go to our blog and check these out. http://room9shsinv.blogspot.co.nz/
LIGHT POLLUTION – On a clear night, with no clouds to be seen, the moonlight shining, and no artificial lights to block the view, a Mum and daughter walk outside. They look up into the sky and see 40 billion stars in the sky. But then they look to their right and see thousands of city lights, too many to count! The whole city is lit up. It looks really pretty but don’t be tricked by this prettiness, because that’s light pollution. The daughter asks her Mum about light pollution and why they have it. The daughter asks so many questions because she doesn’t know much light pollution, and not many other people don’t know either! So the Mum tells her daughter more about light pollution. Did you know, Tekapo has the least light amount of light pollution, or that light pollution causes death for some animals? Turtles hatching depend on moonlight and starlight to guide them to water, but often end up heading toward lit up parking lots, beach houses and hotels by mistake!
“WOW Mum I didn’t know any of that!” “Is there any way that we can stop light pollution?”  “Well not completely but there is a way we can prevent some of it.”
Three easy ways to make your local sky darker is to close the blinds in your house to prevent interior lights from shinning outside, you can also turn off lights that you aren’t using, and if you’ve got outdoor lighting buy some shielding to prevent them shining skyward.
Then go outside and enjoy the view!!!   By Monique Nolan
Amazing Asteroids
Do you know that NASA is doing a mission to get an asteroid into a space bag but they don’t have the funds and the money?
Do you know what an asteroid is? 
Well we are going to explain what an asteroid is. It is a large rock in outer space. They can be as small as a grain of sand or large as a dwarf planet. They orbit around the sun in the inner solar system.
What does NASA do?
NASA is the U.S National Aeronautics and Space Administration, which is the U.S Government’s civilian space agency. NASA was responsible for the early rock testing of moon rocks and the first U.S manned missions into space.
How does the mission work?
They are going to go around the moon to gather speed. Then they are going to fly to a position where they have seen an asteroid. They will capture an asteroid and take a sample of it and fly back to earth to study it. They want to know what they are made of and where they come from.  
Why we should donate money to NASA.
So it’s easy to find out what asteroids are made from. This will help us know where asteroids come from and how they were formed. It might tell us if there is life elsewhere in space or they could discover new life forms or even new materials and minerals that we didn’t know existed. They might find something that can help us in the future. So that is why we told you about asteroid and NASA and why you should donate money to NASA!!!!  By Justin and Cory

Room 8 Class Happenings
Character Descriptions
Firstly we had to visualize our chosen person and think about the best way to describe them so that the reader may make a picture in his or her mind of our chosen person.  In the first paragraph we focused on the physical description and paragraph two was all about how that person acted and spoke.
Below are samples of character descriptions that were the focus for our narrative writing. 
Short, dark, brownish hair that hangs below her shoulders that sways side to side when she walks.  The smooth skin of her face shines from her foundation.  Skin soft like the stuffing of a soft pillow.  Little brown freckles that slowly fade away.  Brown sparkly eyes that sparkle like crystals on a winter’s night.  A small pointed nose that is just the right size.  She’s always got a nice cheeky grin on her face. 
A soft voice that can be deep when she’s angry.  Small, wavy earrings that shine at the top.  
She wears long tops and long skirts.  Paris
 White hair that looks like the foam of two waves.  Eyes that twinkle when he laughs.  A nose that looks like a mountain.  A smile with wrinkles on each side of his face. 
He likes to wear a brush cotton shirt and a pair of ruined old jeans that always have holes.  He always wears slippers around the house.  Josh
Short, brown hair covers his round head.  Brown eyes twinkling like diamonds in the sky.  He has a small button nose and his mouth is wide when he smiles.  The eyebrows on his face are big and bushy, and his neck is hairy.  The clothes he wears are always very dirty when he comes back from work.  Sarah
A shiny, round, bald head shone like the golden goose and his golden feathers.
Eyes sparkled like the big, bright sun or the sparkly night time moon.  His nose looked just right.  Ears poked out like branches from an old wobbly tree.  Mouth opened just like a whale trying to eat a shark.  A nice long neck that bends when he walked like a clown.  You could always see a nice straight back that looked as hard as a rock.            Benjamin
Shiny hair that curls all over her head, long when she does not have a hair tie on.  Eyes like diamonds.  Her face looks like silver when she goes outside because the sun shines down on it.  Her smile is really big when she laughs.  Her skin is smooth and shiny like a whiteboard, the colour of a light caramel.
                                                                                                            Kade
Curly ginger hair covers her head like stacked hay bales.  Brown eyes shine like diamonds in the night sky.  A strong clear voice echoes across the room as she speaks. Laughter fills the room when she is happy.  A smile that looks like a banana is always on her face.  A straight back when she walks. Tanned skin covers her body.   Enthusiasm always fills her body.            Breyah
