Catholic school's Day

 On Tuesday, the 28 of May it was Catholic Schools' Day.  St Pius X wore red uniforms and St lgnatius wore blue uniforms.  They came to our school in buses. St lgnatius and St Pius were gathered under the canopy. We were going up to the church with the other schools. Church started and near the end children from St Pius did a Liturgical dance.

Then after Mass we ate our lunch in our classroom because it was raining but the other children ate under the canopy. Mr Bell was taking photos of the school and some kids went on the big kids park in our school. They all left early because it was too rainy to play sports. What a great day we had.

I show Tika, Pono and Aroha

We have been learning about how Jesus respected the tapu (sacredness) of people. Jesus was walking home to Galilee and then he saw a Samaritan woman. Jesus knew he shouldn't talk to her because Jews weren't allowed to talk to Samaritans, but he did. He also healed the man with leprosy who wasn't allowed to be near people. He shows us that we need to treat people with Tika, Pono and Aroha.
Tika means to do the right thing. I do the right thing by not being in people's fights but trying to help them make peace.
Pono means being true and always doing what is tika . At home I try not to tell lies. Aroha means to show love to each other and even to the people I don't like all that much. I show love when I hug my  brothers and my sister.
