    Dear Parents/Caregivers

    Kia Ora Tatou

    This has been a short week but no less busy. On Friday we celebrated the success of students who sat NCEA endorsements at L1, 2 and 3 in 2016. It was pleasing to see so many students come across the stage to receive their awards. Details and a list of recipients are below.

    Uniform

    This year the school is focussing on maintaining the correct standard of uniform. Some of the common issues that staff are facing with students are:

    • Incorrect shoes, they should be ‘Black, low heeled, lace up, college style shoes with plain black laces (must be able to be polished); plain college style T-Bar shoe for girls, or brown Roman sandals..’
    • Girls with make up especially nail polish.
    • Jewellery. There should be no rings, a single plain stud in each ear is the only permitted piercing.

    The uniform expectations were reviewed last year to make this easy to follow. It would be appreciated if parents could please support the school in setting the correct standard of uniform.

    Finally

    It has been good to see students settled and engaged in class. This year we are working with students on a mentoring programme which aims to encourage students to achieve their full potential. Involvement of the home in the programme is essential to support the learning of our students. On 23rd February we will have our ‘Meet the mentor evening’. Please do put this date in your diary to join us to learn about this new initiative
