Congratulations to Ryan and Emily Ede who were baptised into the Waters of New Life during our All Souls' Day school mass.

NZ Marist Rugby team visit St Pats.

The NZ Marist Rugby Team, who were in Taupo to play rugby this weekend, visited our school this morning to talk to us about who they were, and how they related our school values to what their team does. Later on they threw a number of balls to the teachers, telling them if they caught them they could keep them for the school. Luckily the teachers managed to catch the passes. Several of the players lifted a couple of children and Miss Gribble in the a line out and they too managed to catch the ball. The team performed a waiata which the school responded to and then their was a mass touch game on the field. We wish them all the best for their game on Sunday.
