Senior Celebration Matariki

During the last week of term 2 as part of our Matariki celebration we would like to invite you to attend a senior celebration of NCEA success from 2016...

Principal’s Message:

Kia ora Parents and Whānau

School resumes on Monday 24th July at 8.45 am. This has certainly has been a very busy term with a lot of work done by teachers, support staff and students, with some wonderful gains in student achievement being observed and reported on. I am presently reading individual student reports before them being posting to whānau.

It is very pleasing to see not only the effort being put in by a large number of our children but also the resultant gains that are made. As I have said before we are very lucky in having a Year 1-13 school were there can be seamless movement between the year levels. I am convinced this helps tremendously with supporting students in the teaching and learning programmes.

With regard to reports we choose to post them home to ensure that that reach the right audience. We can only use the most current address that we have been provided with. At the end of last year, a number of reports were returned to school with “not at this address” stamped on them. Please check with the office to make sure we have all the most current contact details for you and your whānau. This way reports will get to the right place but also should we need to contact whānau urgently we have the correct phone numbers etc. Your attention to this would be much appreciated.

As mentioned in the last newsletter we have a group of very excited students, whānau and staff who head off on their Battlefields trip this Saturday. We look forward to hearing of their venture on their return.

Have a great holiday break and we will see everyone bright and shiny at the beginning of term 3
