Catholic Schools Day

On a rainy Friday we weren’t sure if we were going to have the Catholic Schools Day. Suddenly we heard Mrs. Pole say we were going to have the Catholic Schools Day but we weren’t going to have the concert. Still we weren’t sure what we would do with all that practice. The only item was the St Pius choir. After morning tea we all had to line up in the hall. Room 4 was one of the first classes to go so we had to wait a while before the other classes arrived. When all the classes were there Mrs. Williams talked to us. Soon we went on the bus. We had to be careful when we walked to the church. But luckily there was a shelter just beside the church. When we had raced to the church we had to all line up in our classes. Soon all the schools were in the church and we started the lovely mass. In the mass there was singing, reading and Gospels. After the mass the St Pius choir item sang I pa la de se. Suddenly we heard St Patrick’s stand and start going out of the church. Also Eden and I saw someone start sending our classes to St Mark’s classes. The girls from Room 4 went to Room 6 and Room 4 boys went to Room 7. In Room 6 first we ate our lunch next we had a little play. Soon the teacher from Room 6 came in and put on a movie called ‘Madagasca’. Suddenly we all heard Mrs. Pole say, “ Time to go!” So we packed up and lined up on the deck. Out on the deck Mrs. Pole counted us. Once Mrs. Pole said, “ Okay everyone go to the bus.” Some people ran and some people walked. When we got on the bus everybody was singing happily. When we got back to school Mrs. Pole said all the things we were allowed to do. Me and Salote made cards for Miss Oldfield. When I got home I was so tired that I could hardly play with my friend Hannah. My favourite time was when we went in Room 6 because we watched Madagasca.

  1. What a wonderful recount of Catholic Schools Day Ana. It was a lovely mass and the singing was really good. It was an awful, rainy day but you captured the events of the day well.

    Keep up the great writing.
