    Dear Parents/Caregivers

    Kia Ora Tatou

    It never ceases to amaze me the opportunities offered to students at South Otago High School. Across all year groups there is always something to do or try and I would encourage students to make the most of these chances.

    Year 10 Camps

    The reports from these camps has been fantastic and uplifting. The students are having a great time and really growing as people. The leadership being shown is justification alone for running the camps. A special thanks to Mr Palmer and Mr Thomas for all their work on organising the camps as well as all the staff who go on these camps and help make them the special experiences they are.

    Drive to Survive

    One of the skills most needed by our young people is road safety awareness. The Year 11 group had the opportunity on Tuesday to head to Dunedin to get an insight into why driver awareness is so important. This is something I would encourage you all to follow up at home.

    Methamphetamine Awareness Campaign  

    Just as a heads up on Sunday 24th March at the Memorial hall starting at noon there is a chance to get along and learn more about how to help people caught up in the tragedy that is meth use. There will be speakers and activities to help raise awareness.

    Student Achievement

    I would strongly recommend to all students and parents to be actively using the KAMAR parent portal to keep a track of how students are progressing throughout the year. This was kicked off last week with a great turn out at conferencing. However, this is a year long approach to supporting your children and having regular conversations about how school is going can only help. Much of the research we have done indicates that the more aware both students and families are of a persons goals and progress the far more likely they are to reach those goals.

     

    The entire staff are here to help and assist in this so please do not hesitate to make contact with the school so we can work together to reach those goals.
