    Dear Parents/Caregivers

    Kia Ora Tatou

    Welcome back to the start of the third term. I hope that you all survived the wild weather that the region encountered during the break and that you managed to find some warmth whilst you sheltered from the elements.

    This term is the last full term for senior students before many will start their study leave in the fourth term. This means that there is less than 13 weeks of class time available to senior students to complete their internal assessments and prepare for the external examinations. Now is a good time for senior students to start to consider a study plan as there are the school practice exams due to start on 11 September, immediately after tournament week.

    These school exams are important and should be treated as seriously as the NZQA exams. Students who are incapable of sitting the end of year exams may rely upon the grades awarded in the school exams as evidence of their achievement.

     Year 9 and Year 12 survey

    This week surveys have been issued to Y9 and Y12 students and their family/ whanau to complete and return by Thursday 10 August.  The feedback that you provide is helpful as we plan for the future.

    Lockers

    In the last week of last term the long awaited school lockers arrived and the preparations started immediately to prepare these for installation. They have now been fitted into the top corridor of D Block. Most have a power supply to enable students to charge chrome books, lap tops and cell phones.

    The lockers are available for rent for $5 per term and the payment of a refundable deposit of $10. There is an agreement for student and parents to sign. Lockers will be allocated upon receipt of payment of the fees for the remainder of this year, the deposit and signed agreement.

    RYDA Road Safety programme

    This week we have also been offered places for all Year 12 students to participate the RYDA Road Safety programme on 26 September. This is for all students regardless of whether they are learning to drive currently or not. Having seen the benefit of this course I know that it is well worth while. I anticipate that I will be able to confirm the details and any cost in the near future.
