Mufti Day
Yesterday in Takitimu, we looked at how the people in Fiji are coping after
cyclone Winston devastated their homes. We thought about how they are
beginning to adapt their old, everyday routines to their new surroundings,
and were thankful that we were able to donate money to help provide
food and water, and to help them rebuild.
Well done to the students who wore mufti yesterday, and who donated
their gold coins. The total amount we raised was $161. Thank you.
Bike track: A big thank-you to Stuart who
has painted a new bike track around our
school field. It has been utilised well over the
past week and is a lot of fun.
South Wairarapa Swimming
Road Patrol: Just a reminder that the
Road patrollers are there for a reason—to
help the students cross the road safely.
We would like to remind you to use the
pedestrian crossing, and to encourage
younger students to use it as well. Thank
you.
What a fantastic day we had on Friday at the
South Wairarapa Swimming Sports. Even
though the water was cool, the sun was shinning and the day was very warm.
All of our swimmers did their very best, and their behaviour was outstanding! Well done everyone!
A big congratulations must go to the following swimmers who were successful in making it to the next stage of the swimming competition, the
Wairarapa Championships in Masterton on Wednesday the 16th March:
Julia O’Driscoll, Brian McCarthy, Tegan James, Shoshannah Bryce, Peter
O’Driscoll, Summer Culkin, and Dylan Pugh.

Movin’ March
This month is Movin’ March. The students at St Teresa’s are encouraged to bike, scooter, walk or run to
school for the entire month. The teachers will be giving out spot prizes, and the students will go into a draw
to win a brand new bike, helmet, and drink bottle. Parents/caregivers can also win prizes for their family by
taking photos of their child/ren on the way to school, uploading them to their Facebook page, and
tagging #movinmarch. By doing this, they will
go into the draw to win a family pass to one of
seven locations, such as Wellington Zoo and
Pukaha Mt Bruce. Check out these super
movers…
From The St Teresa’s Parish, Featherston:
Featherston Community Board member and banjo player Peter Jackson and Trinity
Roots band front man Warren Maxwell are putting together a CommUNITY Concert
and Picnic in Cherry Tree park on the main road in Featherston on Saturday 19 March
from 3pm. The event is to help promote goodwill in Featherston after the division
and ill-feeling created in the community following the recent tragic deaths of
teenagers Hoani Korewha and Pacer Willacy-Scott.
Check out our blog to keep up to
date with what is happening in Takitimu:
St Teresa's Church is going to have a stand at Cherry Tree park at which we will give
out hot cross buns and bookmarks which the students from St Teresa's School will
make. The bookmarks will have messages emphasising the importance of love, forgiveness and hope. These messages will be very fitting with Easter the following
weekend celebrating Jesus rising from the dead and promising us eternal life. They
will also help to spread the message of mercy, forgiveness and love which Pope Francis tells us is so important for community to grow.
Students and parents would be most welcome to join people from St Teresa's Church
at the park to help give out the hot cross buns and bookmarks. Just come along!
