Opening Mass

Friday 10 February 2012, St Pius X school had their opening mass for the year. It was a time to welcome new pupils and their families, thank God for blessing us with another school year and to focus on working hard so we can achieve our goals. Room7 led the mass.

The mass was held at our parish church. Good thing our church is on school grounds, so it was only a few feet away from our school office. All the classes were gathered at the church. There were a lot of parents too.

I said the introduction, I was a little bit nervous but I got over it. Before I knew it I was finish.
It was now time to sing the entrance hymn. The song was called 'Rainbow'. The entrance hymn was sung beautifully and the mass begun.

During the mass Ofa read the 1st reading. From that reading, I learnt to not be lazy, and if I want something I need to work for it. It was a message for everyone.

After the reading the mass went on as usual.

But before Father Iosefa said the final blessing, he asked for all the teachers to go up to the altar. So the students and parents could bless them. Bless them for another year of teaching and to ask God to give them strength to help us succeed in our learning.

Everything about the mass was special and I was glad to be apart of it.

Tennis Experience

“I haven’t played that before. Have you?”

Full of excitement I grabbed a racket and a ball, and went to one side of the net. Marcel, our instructor, demonstrated a few basic skills. Everyone followed. I nervously threw the ball in the air and hit it softly with the racket. I felt relieved. I actually hit the ball and it didn’t go tumbling onto the ground. Like I expected.

I learnt the basic skills of playing tennis. I also learnt about a ‘fore arm hit’. I found it difficult to do at first but I practised a little more and I got the hang of it.

One of the games we played were ‘King of the court’. King of the court was sort of like the tennis version of handball. Although I wasn’t the best I still had fun. It was a great experience.



Welcome to my blog. On my blog you will see all my work I have completed. Not only do you read them but you can also post a comment and give me feed-back on what I need to work on.

So that's all for me right now. HAPPY READING :-)
