Star on the guitar!

I do guitar lessons at school every Thursday. My teachers name is Leigh.
I have learnt songs and chords like C, E7, EM, A, F, D and G.
My favourite song is Roar.
Today I got 10 lollies for good work.
I enjoy learning the guitar, it is fantastic.

The Magic Tree Book

A brave pirate, a snooty fox, an excitable dog, a sleepy lion, a kind washer-woman and an i-pad “freak” are the main characters in St Joseph Catholic School’s latest production, “The Magic Tree Book”. These characters will be recognised from well-known NZ stories by authors Joy Cowley, Gavin Bishop, Margaret Mahy and Lynley Dodd.
The story was written by Mrs Jemma Van Eijk and is about the importance of keeping a town library open even though children are always playing on their ipads rather than reading books.
All of the students are involved in the show and have been working hard dancing, singing as well as painting props. Three exciting shows are being held at St Joseph’s School hall starting Monday 15th September until Wednesday 17th September at 7pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, primary/intermediate students $5 and pre-schoolers are free. You can pick them up from the school office or there will be some available at the door. It’s going to be an amazing show – we hope you will come along to see!
