Dear Sacred Heart School (Dunedin),

These holidays, kids will receive FREE entry into Larnach Castle when accompanied by a paying adult. We’re writing to you in the hopes that you’ll help us keep school kids busy these holidays! This both helps us and the wider Dunedin tourism industry – as well as keeping kids interested in our local heritage and culture! You can help us out by putting a small blurb in your newsletter, or alternatively, the provided ad! Just download the ad at the bottom of the email!

The promotion is valid for an unlimited number of children when accompanied by a minimum of one paying adult. Note: child of age 0-14. Please feel free to contact us regarding any queries that you may have.

Warm regards on behalf of the team at Larnach Castle!

Feast of the Sacred Heart

Kia ora te Whanau

Last Friday was officially our school feast day. Because Mr Tili and I were attending the Catholic Schools Convention in Wellington we have decided to observe the day on Thursday of this week. We will be attending special Mass of the Sacred Heart at 9:30am and will then have a shared morning tea in our Charism whanau groups. In the afternoon we will gather in Nga Maara Hall for some music and dance activities. You are most welcome to join us at any stage during the day.

Ka kite

Paul and the team
