This Tuesday we will be visiting the Kumeu library. There we will have a lesson from the librarian on how to locate books and information in a library. Students will also have an opportunity to take out a book for their personal projects. Please note that if a child takes out a book on the school account they will be responsible to ensure it is returned to me undamaged on a specified date.
Please send a $2 coin with your child on Tuesday as a contribution towards travel to and from the library.
Next Sunday is the festival occasion of the appearance of Lord Chaitanya (known as Gaura Purnima. Gaura Purnima is one of teh most exciting festivals of the year and is very significant because our philosophy and movement is based on the pastimes and teachings of Lord Chaitanya. Lord Chaitanya is the Supreme Lord Krishna himself who descended specifically to give the mercy of the holy name in this age of Kali. He started the sankirtan movement of congregational canting of Krishna’s holy names.
Gaura purnima will be celebrated in school this coming Friday.
