It’s hard to believe we are at the end of term three. It’s been a busy term with a lot happening. The winter sports season has ended, we have competed in annuals, had more sports exchanges, restaurant evenings, parent teacher interviews, school trips and more. Much of what has been happening is included in this newsletter. A huge thankyou to all the staff who have been involved in organising and supporting all that has happened this term.
A few reminders of upcoming events, we have both our Sports and Performing Arts and Senior prizegiving in the first half of next term, we look forward to welcoming you all to these events.
We also are looking forward to our Jubilee celebrations over Labour Weekend.
Aside from extra curricular activities the senior students have also just completed their Derived Grade Exams, by the time you receive this you will have received via email a Senior results update report. These are also available through the school portal. If you have any queries about any information in the reports please contact your child’s teacher. I encourage the students sitting NCEA exams next term to start preparing for these exams over the holiday break.
Hopefully early next term the beautification of the area outside the café will be complete. This will provide a fantastic area for the school to use both as an everyday eating area and as a venue for more significant occasions.
Today I have also had official notification that McKenzie Highman have been appointed as master planning architects for the refurbishment and rebuilding of the school. I look forward to sharing with you progress as we start this new chapter of the school’s history.
As we approach warmer weather, I need to remind you all of our uniform requirements. The school website has details about what the students are required to wear. Sports hoodies are not part of school uniform and should not be worn to school. We do allow sandals, however we do not allow slides to be worn to school.
I wish you all a great holiday break and look forward to seeing you all next term.
