Catholic Schools’ Kapahaka / Pasifika Festival

Oh wow – what a day on Friday June 16th – we took part in the annual festival for Catholic Schools in our area this year help at Hato Paora College.

It was great to see everyone up performing and seeing all the practice come to a wonderfully exciting completion.

Thanks to all the Mums and Dads for your support and to Iva and Faiao for your leadership in preparing the children. Well done Ian on organising the music and introducing the item.

Lastly “Good job” to all the boys and girls – we are proud of you – very well done!



It doesn’t get better than this!

My recent post about the Year 7 and 8 children winning our local schools 7 aside soccer section of the Quad tourney has a sequel – (what a mouthful) – the Year 5 and 6 children went out and did the same on the Thursday tourney.

It was a true highlight seeing all the kids going so hard and enthusiastic all day – just great sport.

One of the most pleasing aspects of the day was the support the senior children supplied with Ian and Ethan coaching the team and the other 4 Year 8 children supporting.

CONGRATULATIONS ST MATTHEW’S CATHOLIC SCHOOL – this has never been done before by our school and it was just 21 kids from our class getting the job done! Outstanding!

An amazing week – thank you everyone and especially our wonderful supporters.
