As another long term at South Otago High School draws to an end it is nice to sit back and look at everything we have done. Personal highlights for me include
- Powhiri for new staff and students
- Implementation of our Friday options
- Mentoring groups
- Y9 Green park
- Y10 Tautuku camps
- Student council selection
- Athletics day
- Y11 career taster day to the SIT
These are but a few of the activities that make a school what it is. None of this would be possible without staff and parents working together.
I would like to offer a huge thanks to all those who help to generate, manage and support the vast range of opportunities here at school. It is our young people who get the benefit and it sets them up for a bright future.
We sadly say farewell to two staff members this week. Christine Carroll has been with us this term teaching Social Studies. She is heading off to be a mother – best of luck Christine. We also farewell Max Hoegh. Max has been with us just over 2 years in the Mathematics department. Max is heading away to be a professional hunter and trapper – exciting times ahead for Max.
A final note is to wish everybody a safe and relaxed Easter break. We look forward to the start of Term 2 with fresh and enthusiastic students. Please drive safely and take care of each other.
