To our tamariki, teachers and parent help who performed so beautifully at last weeks Taiopenga, you were amazing.

To the year 9 – 10 and senior students who attended OPC. We had nothing but glowing reports.
To all of our students who have put their heads down this term and achieved their credits, goals or grades that they aspired to, well done. You are a credit to yourselves, your school, your family and your community.
