A Fun Mission Day

On Friday we and our whanau celebrated Mission Day.  On Mission Day we raised lots of money for the orphans in India.  Orphans are children who do not have parents.  

First we went to Mass at church and then we came back to school and sat quietly while Father Matthew blessed our new playing area.  

Then we had playtime while the teachers put all the activities out.  Some activities were outside and some were in the classrooms.  After playtime I bought a traffic light flavoured ice block, an orange drink and some yummy lollies.  Then I went To Room 8 and had my face painted.  I was Penny Wise from the movie called 'IT'.  I looked really cool.  

Next my brother Xavier, my cousin Cameron I went to the library and sang Karaoke.  My friend Sione we won a prize.  It was a jar of lollies.  Then we went on the library computers and played some games.  They were reading games.  

After that we went to Room 2 with Miss Craig to watch a movie.  It was called Cat in the Hat, and we ate salty popcorn.  Later, before home time, we went to the new play area for the raffles to be drawn.  Then we went home by walking in the school walking line.  I had a fun Mission Day.

My Mission Day

On Friday we and our whanau celebrated Mission Day.  On Mission Day we raised $1,003 for the orphans in India.  

First we went to church to celebrate Mission Day.  At church we sang some songs, listened to Father Matthew read from the Bible and prayed to God.  

After church we went to our school's new play area so Father Matthew could bless it.  When the bell rang it was morning tea, and we played while the teachers set up the activities.  

When the next bell rang we could buy stuff and do the activities.  I bought an ice block for $1.  Then I went to Room 6 and bought a chocolate cake.  Then I bought some candy from Sister Evalesi for 20 cents and 50 cents.  

Next I went to Room 8 to have my face painted.  I got a love and hate design painted on my face.  Then I had another face paint.  It was a beautiful butterfly with sprinkles on it.  I loved it!

Later we had lunch time and I had a hot dog.  Then we went back to our classroom and watched a movie while we ate popcorn.

Before saying prayers and going home we went outside to draw the raffles.  There were three food hampers and my brother Siu had bought a ticket, for our dad, to try and win one of the food hampers.  My dad wanted to win the rugby ball but he didn't win.  Maybe we will win a raffle next year.  I hope so!

Having Fun On Mission Day

On Friday we went to church because it was Mission Day.  After church we went back to school and Father Matthew blessed our new playground.  Then my Mum, Dad and sister came.  

Next it was playtime and I played with my friends.  After playtime my sister bought some plants from Mrs Mansfield and a box of cupcakes from the Room 7 boys.  The box of cupcakes was $5.  I didn't to eat them because they were for my mum and my sister.  My sister also bought some lollies from Sister Evalesi.  I think she bought six boxes altogether.  I got to eat some of the lollies and so did my twin brother, Willietony.  

Then it was lunch time.  I ate two sausage sizzles with tomato sauce and they were yum.  My brother also got two sausage sizzles.  After lunch I watched a movie while we ate some popcorn.  The popcorn tasted salty and I liked it.  

Before going home we had the raffle draw.  I didn't win anything but my brother Willietony won two Lego Ninjagos.  I helped him to fix them and he shared one of them with our younger brother called Cosma.  I wanted the Buzzy Bee, but I didn't win it.  Maybe I will win something next year.  I love Mission Day because I had fun.  We raised lots of money for the orphans in India.

Mission Day

On Friday we had Mission Day at St Patrick's school.  We had Mission Day at School to help raise money for an Orphanage School in India.  An orphanage is a place that looks after children who do not have parents.  

First we went to church and then we went back to school where Father Matthew blessed our new learning area.  After playtime there were activities and things to buy.  I bought a necklace and a bracelet from Phillamena's box.  They were white and they sparkled.  I also bought a drink.  In Room 8 I had my face painted.  I got a black and yellow butterfly painted on my face and I looked pretty.  After that I got an ice block and some lollies.  My ice block was red, green and orange.  It's called a traffic light ice block and it tasted delicious.  

At lunchtime I ate a sausage sizzle and then later we watched a movie with Sister Evalesi and Miss Craig.  Before we went home we did the raffle draw.  I did not win the prize but I had a good day.

Happy Mission Day

On Friday we had Mission Day at St Patrick's school in Panmure.  We had Mission Day to help to raise money for Mission orphanage in an Indian village.  

First we went to church to pray and  Father Andrew read from the Bible.  After church we went back to school and Father Andrew blessed the new play area with holy water and holy incense.  The incense had smoke coming out of it.  Then we had a normal playtime while the teachers got the activities ready.

After playtime the first thing that I did was go to Room 8 to have my face painted.  My face was painted like Flash.  After I had my face painted I went to Room 7.  In Room 7 we danced.  Then I got a surprise.  The surprise was that I got some lollies because I was good at dancing.

Next I went to Room 6.  In Room 6 I bought a cake and then I went outside and bought a raffle.  When the raffle was drawn Mrs Foden chose me!  Then Mrs Dines chose me too!  After the raffles had been drawn we said a prayer and we went home.  I had a happy Mission Day.

The Best Day Ever

On Friday we and our whanau celebrated Mission Day.   On Mission  Day we normally go to church for Mass.  Then Father Andrew blessed our new play place with incense.  Vaughn held the pot of incense and swung it from side to side.  

When the bell rang it was just a normal playtime because teachers were setting up the tables for the activities.  When the second bell rang everyone went crazy!!! 

First I went to Room 7 to do the dancing and I won a ball.  Then I went to the library to do the karaoke.  My friends Sione, Jacob, Sonasi and I won a jar of candy.  When the next bell rang I dashed into Room 8 and had a Tongan flag painted on my face.  Then we went to Room 2, with Sister Evalesi and Miss Craig, to watch a movie.  It was called The Cat In The Hat.  While we watched the movie we all had some fabulous popcorn.  I gave my friends Matthew and Leonie some money so that they could have some popcorn too.  Mission Day is a very good day.

Mission Day

On Friday we celebrated Mission Day with our friends and our whanau.  On Mission Day we raised money for the orphans in India.  We are able to wear any clothes to school on Mission Day.  I wore a black dress, black shoes and a black jacket.  

First we went to church.  We sang and people read from the Bible.  Next we went to the new area of our school.  Then we sat down on the floor.  I saw Father Matthew and he blessed our new area. 

After Father Matthew blessed the new area we had a normal morning tea.  During morning tea time we waited for the bell to ring so that we could spend our money.  

I was so happy when the bell rang.  Ellma and I had an idea!  We shared our money so we went to eat popsicles.  Ellma's popsicle was traffic lights, and my popsicle was lemon flavoured.

Then I bought some candy from Sister Evalesi.  I saw my brother, he said, "Go to Room 7", because he wanted me to spend my money in his classroom.  So I did.  There was dancing, but I didn't play that activity.  Next I went outside.  I went to Room 8 because I wanted to have my face painted.  But there were lots of people so I went outside again and bought a drink.  

The bell rang and we went to Room 2 with Miss Craig and watched a movie.  The movie was called The Cat In A Hat.  While we watched the movie we bought and ate some popcorn.  It tasted good.  

After watching the movie we went to the new area to draw the raffles.  Cheska won the two balls and the buzzy bee on the first raffle.  She won everything on that raffle.  Next it was the raffle for Lego.  My friend Matthew wanted the Lego but he didn't get one.  So it was the next raffle and I had my fingers crossed for Ellma to win but it was not Ellma.  It was someone else.    

Then I saw my Mum and I said, "Hi" and she said that it was time to go home.  So I went to my Mum and said, "My favourite activity was the face painting even though I didn't have a chance to get my face painted.  Maybe next year I will get my face painted.  I love Mission Day because there are lots of things to do and to buy that will help the poor orphans India.
