On Wednesday the senior team gathered together in the hall for their annual scripture competition. Twelve participants, two representatives from each class, had practised for the competition by reading five scriptures in their own time.
Each participant randomly selected one of the five readings to read for the judges.
Father Terry and Mrs Fairweather had a very tough job deciding on a winner as the calibre of the readers overall was very high. Each reader was judged on their ability to proclaim the word of God to their audience using a select set of criteria.
Proclaiming the word is a lot harder than just reading the word.
The participants were Francesca Crichton and Ashley Ip from Room 18, Kadyn Serrao and Marina Chen from Room 19, Ruby Faulkner and Isabella O’Kane from Room 20, Marli O’Hagan and Samantha Avis from Room 21, Alessandro Zyzalo and Pania Henare from Room 22 and Sonya Yu and John Pieters from Room 23.
We are very proud to announce that Sonya Yu was the runner up and Marli O’Hagan was the winner on the day.
Both Sonya and Marli will be representing our school at the Catholic Inter-school event to be held on the 17th of September. We wish them well.
