June Update

NEWS FROM SCHOOL


The School year is progressing well and fast. Senior students are on study leave for their Latin Cambridge Examinations and all students are in preparation for their mid-year examinations, which are already only one week away!

The Netball Team raised money for their registration fees by selling chocolates.

Other fundraising events included a cake raffle which was drawn on the Feast of Corpus Christi.

Corpus Christi Procession

The Brothers prepared an altar for benediction on the school verandah.


Senior girls arranged flowers to adorn the altar.


Both the Secondary and Primary Schools assembled in Church for the start of the procession with the Blessed Sacrament.




The procession made its way to the girls' school where we had Benediction.



CONVENT NEWS


The Sisters at prayer.

We now have both the back drive and music studio completed! This meant that we began looking for pianos. We put a notice in the parish bulletin and received three offers of pianos the same day. Aren’t traditional parishes wonderful?


The completed driveway.

Novitiate lectures

During all the excitement Mother manages to keep Novitiate classes going.

Lovely pictures. Your seniors look so serious and focused. (reminds me of my high school days that happened far too long ago)
Nice for you to have so many novices.
I enjoy visiting your site.

Love the photos but why do you wear your cappas under your guimpe and not over?

Très jolies photos, compliments de France

In response to Moniales:
We wear our guimpe over our cappas
because it has always been the tradition within New Zealand. Please refer to the photos on our NEW "Our History" page.

The more I look at your website, the more I think I should consider teaching in your school, which EXACTLY corresponds with what I am looking for. They all wear a mantilla, the mass is traditional, how beautiful!!
