Holy Cross School Henderson

I have just been to Room 5's class Mass. It was AMAZING. There were 25 children who are year 1 and 2 and they sung and spoke so beautifully. It was a very moving celebration. I felt very privileged to be a part of this beautiful time!

Hi from Holy Cross school in Henderson, Auckland

Hi, today I have Demariss and Michelle with me writing on the blog.
In our school we have a lovely Principal called Mrs Moy-Low. We have 17 classrooms. We have lovely teachers and an awesome playground. We have a bottom field and a top field. There are loads of caterpillars and chrysalises in our butterfly garden. We have a green team garden and a garden patch. Today we are making 3D posters in the computer suite with Mrs K, Louise and Eka!

Auckland here we come....

Today Louise and Eka flew up to Auckland. Eka got to travel with the host serving coffee and later they both got up to the cockpit and even got to sit in the Captain's seat. The sunset was amazing above the cloud and we got an awesome view of the tip of the South Island...
