Air Force Museum Trip 2018

Hello everyone,

On Monday Hillary hub traveled to the Christchurch air force museum to dive deeper into our current atomic bomb research and to visit the Anne Frank Exhibit. Many students didn't know Anne Frank or her story but were interested in her hiding, daily life, and her book... Which some students are interested in reading in the next few weeks. We had some students from Rangi Ruru to escort us around the Anne Frank exhibit after We read out some stories about being an immigrant as Ann was an immigrant herself. Afterward, we went into the classroom to watch a video and discuss our new learnings.
Thanks for reading, there's more history to come!

Leadership Day.

Last Friday the Year 7 & 8 students attended a leadership day at Cathedral College. The goal for the day was to gain a better understanding of what it means to be a leader and to understand that we can all be leaders in some way or another. The students had the opportunity to listen, participate and learn with other students from other Catholic schools.The day ended with a mass led by Father John.

Swimming Sports 2018

Tuesday was the 2018 swimming sports at OLA. For some who may not know, swimming sports is a competition for years 5-8 to find the best swimmers to represent the school at zone competitions. The races available were: freestyle, butterfly, backstroke and breaststroke. All races for years 5-8 were 50 meters (two lengths) while year 4's took part in a "have a go"  25 meter kickboard, freestyle or backstroke swim.

The event took 4 hours, 44 races and quite a lot of waiting. As per normal, a relay was held for all the school houses. Congratulations Francis house for winning the school swimming relay!
Here are some pictures of everyone on the day:
