Dear Parents

The countdown is on to our school fair next Sunday 25th November. I attended my first fair meeting for a while and a big thanks must go to the organising committee for all their hard work. The list of parents who are running events, assisting, sponsoring or providing goods and services is truly humbling and I thank you all on behalf of the children at Scared Heart School for this. I have decided to send out another newsletter solely focussed on the fair later today.

Faith Facts

Week 5: November 12-16    16th St Margaret of Scotland (1045 – 1093)
Margaret was prayerful. She gathered women together to study the Scriptures and to embroider vestments and altar cloths. She was always surrounded by beggars, and she gave them money and clothes. She set up homes and hospitals for those in need. She and her husband would go to church during Lent and Advent. On the way home, they would wash the feet of poor people in need and give them money. At home, Margaret fed nine orphans who were brought to her daily. She brought a love of the arts and education to the people, and they loved her in return. Her children are believed to be primarily responsible for two centuries of progress and peace in Scotland.

Week 6: November 19 – 23 November 26-30   21st The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary
On this Feast of the Presentation of Mary in the Temple by Joachim and Anne. They of course are the grandparents of Jesus. Jesus was also presented in the Temple.

25th  Christ the King Sunday
This is the last Sunday of the Liturgical year and is a feast day that focuses on the authority of Christ. Jesus Christ King of the Universe.

Congratulations to James Hillman and Dean Lindsay who received the Charism Awards for the last fornight, and to all the children who received certificates.

PTA Uniforms – Many thanks to the people who have dropped off 2nd hand uniforms. We appreciate these, as they can be handed down to other families.

World Toilet Day
This Monday the 19th November is World Toilet Day. We, Liam & Harry Rippingale, rather enjoy a great deal of toilet humour. We’re 10 and 8 year old boys, so there’s always plenty of talk of butts and poo etc in our house. We’re lucky that we can laugh about these things. Did you know that 2.3 billion people don’t have access to toilets, latrines, or acceptable sanitation? This leads to disease and hundreds of thousands of deaths each year around the world. We have decided to raise funds and awareness for this cause by selling emoji poo cupcakes for $1 each this coming Monday at break times. All money raised will go to our page we have set up at: https://www.usefulgifts.org/community/pages/950178136-seth

By Liam (Rm 9) and Harry (Rm 3) Rippingale

Room for One More
There are children and young people in our community who need the support of Foster families. Family Works are seeking people (couples or singles) to welcome children and young people into their homes. Care may be needed for regular respite, temporary short-term or long-term. Family Works will support you with training, ongoing guidance, and foster reimbursement. If this interests you, please contact: Nicky Bode: nbode@familyworkssld.nz or phone 211-8226.

Class Happenings

Room 3 – Week 3
Room 3 have had a busy start to the term. We have been working on creating advertising posters for the School Fair.
We have been looking at language and images that stand out and make people interested.

Last Friday we were lucky enough to have a visit from James from the Tour of Southland. He spoke to us about bike safety.
We also got to watch part of the race as they passed our school on Monday.

Room 8 – Week 5
Room 8 had a Ki ō rahi lesson with a local expert last week.  Ki ō rahi is a traditional Māori game which is based on “The Legend of Rahi”. If you would like to find out more about the game the legend and instructions are on YouTube.

Writing

Earlier in the term we read a great book “The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors”. We then wrote our own legends; they explained a battle between objects we would find in our home or at school.

The Legend of  Scissor, String, and Rubber
Once upon a time in a wonder land there lived 3 things called scissor string and rubber. One day scissors was in her junk draw minding  her own business when she saw something at the corner of her eye. It was a pencil it was ready to battle. Boom! Boo!! Wow!!! Chow!!! Scissors is victorious.When string was in the study she saw a roll of sellotape she looked at it with a weird face then the sellotape awoke with a shock and said. “What you looking at little skinny thing?”  then the string said “what did you just call me?” “LETS BATTLE!!!” Ok lets do it. Boom!! Bow!! Boo!! Wow!! String is victorious. When rubber was in the boys desk he saw something in there that was bright. He looked at it up and down wondering what it was? Then it was up and looking at the rubber and said with a big voice “LETS BATTLE” “Ok” said the rubber.

Boom!! Boo!! BOW!! Wow!! Rubber is victorious.
Then at the end of  grandpa’s garage they all meet up, scissors string and rubber. Scissors cuts string; string covers rubber; then rubber sits on scissors boom!! Bow!! Wow!! Then they fight and fight and fight and fight till the are all so tired. “Man I am tired” said scissors “me two” said rubber “me three” said string.
They were all so sleepy so they went back to where they came from. Scissors went back to his junk draw, rubber went back to the boys desk and string went back to the study. THEN THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER.   By Holly Robertson

The Legend of Hot Coal, Bottle of Water and Tree
Many years ago there lived a strong hot coal in the realm    of the fireplace. He was searching for a worthy challenger. He searched far and wide in the cracks of the fireplace; finally he found a somewhat worthy challenger. “Come down from that crack you deformed piece of dust”
Coal said “oh ho ho I’m gonna get in your eyes and blind you and I’m not a piece of dust.” ASH VS HOT COAL hot coal wins. “Wow how pathetic I thought you were at least gonna be good. I’m leaving this place.” And with saying that hot coal left for a more worthy challenger.
He went to the little shrub by the door a little leaf fell off and coal said “Challenge me you veiny thing oh I’ll  come over there and will hurt you with my sharp leaf head!”
LEAF VS HOT COAL hot coal wins. “Can anyone beat me?”
Up on the high mountains of the table is a warrior so destined to be beaten his name is….. Water bottle. He searched on the table and found a bug he challenged the bug. “You disgusting animal fight me” “oh I’ll flap my wings and heat you up to get you!” WATER BOTTLE VS BUG water bottle wins! “Wow no challenging challengers wow I need someone hard.” So he jumped down and saw a piece of dirt. “Challenge me you thing what are you?” “I’m dirt oh anyway challenge me okay” WATER BOTTLE VS DIRT water bottle wins. “Even dirt cant beat me why can nobody beat me?”
Meanwhile in the realm of deserted garden a little tree was unbeaten right now he was challenging a stick TREE VS STICK how did stick w w w w  lose? “Well I’m very alike to that thing and I need someone to beat me!”
Tree found a stone “challenge me you hard gum thing” “oh I’ll beat you and hurt you.” TREE VS STONE tree is victorious.
Tree ran to the realm of under the couch. He found water bottle and hot coal fighting water bottle poured water on hot coal and put him out “yay finally someone can beat me” coal said “well I still can’t lose” “ahem” tree said “try fight me” so they battled tree absorbed water from water bottle “well no one can beat me”  “I’m still here” coal said.
So they battled and hot coal won and they battled so many time because they could all feel the taste of defeat one last time after that they returned home and lived happily ever after. THE END.   By Shaun Winter

Dear Parents

Faith Facts

Week 3: October 29 – 2 November
Pope Francis Pray intention for November. Peace: That the language of love and dialogue may always prevail over the language of conflict.
Hands Across the Divide in Londonderry, Northern Ireland

 

1st All Saints
All Saints’ Day is a holy day in the Catholic Christian calendar set aside to honour all the saints, especially those without their own special feast days. In the West, it is held annually on November 1
2nd All Souls
All Souls’ Day is a holy day in the calendar that falls on November 2. The Catholic church sets aside All Souls’ Day to remember those who have died.

Week 4: November 5 – 9
Pope Francis’ Prayer for Peace

Lord God of peace, hear our prayer!
Now, Lord, come to our aid! Grant us peace, teach us peace; guide our steps in the way of peace. Open our eyes and our hearts and give us the courage to say: “Never again war!”; “With war everything is lost”. Instil in our hearts the courage to take concrete steps to achieve peace.
Keep alive within us the flame of hope, so that with patience and perseverance we may opt for dialogue and reconciliation. In this way may peace triumph at last, and may the words “division”, “hatred” and “war” be banished from the heart of every man and woman. Lord, defuse the violence of our tongues and our hands. Renew our hearts and minds, so that the word which always brings us together will be “brother”, and our way of life will always be that of: Shalom, Peace, Salaam!
Amen.

11th November Sunday Armistice Day

100th Anniversary of the signing of the Armistice and the end of WWI

Dear Parents

Welcome to Coby Wanakore, Kellen Lau and Tyler McLean who joined our school this week. We hope they enjoy their time at Sacred Heart School.

Our prayers are with the Tippen family this week.  We were sorry to hear of Roger’s passing on Sunday morning.  Mr Tippen was the Principal of Sacred Heart School before Mr Forde.

Faith Facts – Week 1: October 15 – 19
Welcome back for term four. A term that is full of special Catholic events.

Feast Days
All Saints and All Souls Day
Advent the preparation for Christmas
It is all happening this term.
The month of October each year is dedicated to the Holy Rosary
The Rosary is based on the incidents in the life of Jesus and Mary.
Many are rediscovering the beauty and spiritual benefit of this meditative practice.
The use of beads or knotted ropes to count large numbers of prayers comes from the earliest days of Christianity. However, this way of prayer precedes Christianity. The development of the rosary as we know it today has gone through many stages. Christian Monks used this method to pray the Psalms. Today the rosary consists of in total150 Hail Marys, divided into three sets of 50, which are further divided into five sets of 10 (a decade). Many people pray 1 set.

Feast Days
17th St Ignatius of Antioch
18th St Luke
21st Missions Sunday

Week 2: October 22 – 26
21st was Mission Sunday
Pope Francis Message 2018

Every man and woman is a mission; that is the reason for our life on this earth. To be attracted and to be sent are two movements that our hearts, especially when we are young, feel as interior forces of love; they hold out promise for our future and they give direction to our lives. More than anyone else, young people feel the power of life breaking in upon us and attracting us. To live out joyfully our responsibility for the world is a great challenge. I am well aware of lights and shadows of youth; when I think back to my youth and my family, I remember the strength of my hope for a better future. The fact that we are not in this world by our own choice makes us sense that there is an initiative that precedes us and makes us exist. Each one of us is called to reflect on this fact: “I am a mission on this Earth; that is the reason why I am here in this world” (Evangelii Gaudium, 273).

We proclaim Jesus Christ, transmitting the faith to the ends of the earth, bearing witness to love.

22nd John Paul II Pope from 1978 to 2005.
Pope (Latinpapa from Greekπάππας pappas,[1] “father”), also known as the supreme pontiff (from Latin pontifex maximus “greatest priest”), is the Bishop of Rome and the leader of the worldwide Catholic Church.
