Catholic Character

Abina Pope —

Term 3 is a busy one with the focus for Catholic Character being Social Justice. The first project is a 'Can Drive' for Westport.

I encourage all of our families to send your son or daughter to school with some spare cans of food from your pantry. These will go to St Canice's Parish to be distributed amongst the community.

The Caritas focus for Social Justice week, is to “Be the Church”, this programme offers a lot of challenges for the students to reflect on, and be involved with.

Students from JPII will join in with the students from St Patrick's for the bi monthly Mass to be held here at school.

Fr Mathew has begun the Eucharistic Ministers Programme for our students, and it is great to see them getting involved with this.

Kia Kaha Kia ngawari kia hari nga wa katoa

Be strong, be gentle and be joyful always.

Ms Pope
