    Dear Parents/Caregivers

    Kia Ora Tatou 

    Welcome to the first newsletter of the third term. I trust that all students had the opportunity to relax and make the most of the free time. I would also expect that students would have caught up with missed work and for senior students started their planning and preparation for the school examinations in a few weeks time.

    Senior School Examinations

    With these fast approaching I do encourage all students to take them seriously. The work completed during this time may be used as the final result for students if they are unable to complete the end of the year examinations due to illness or other exceptional circumstances. The examinations do have immediate value and should be undertaken with the same level of commitment as the final end of year examinations.

    SNOB

    This great event is now just a week away. Preparations are being finalised and I am sure that it will be an enjoyable event. This week Year 13 students have been issued with a letter to parents as a final reminder of the rights and responsibilities. I am looking forward to an enjoyable night for both staff and students.

    Principal’s Lunch

    At the end of last term I hosted a lunch for students who had excellent attendance rates and who had demonstrated the school values of:

    • Persistence
    • Excellence
    • Respect
    • Caring
    • Honesty

    The students who attended were; Kobe Thomson, Hania Coll, Bradley Jessop, Emily Cook, Bax Colley, Chrystal Wrigley, Jacob Hutton, Paige Win, Reid Johnstone and Sophie Morrison. It was a pleasure to meet such positive students and acknowledge their contribution. I intend to invite another group of students at the end of this term too.

    Finally

    I look forward to a positive term and would remind parents and whanau that we are continuing to set high expectations not just for students in class work but also behaviour, uniform and attitude around school. Your help and support is vital for our young people.
