Its a Term 2 Wrap!

Kia Ora Parents and Caregivers

Thank you for your support in the running of all our programmes this term.

We have now concluded our Year 8 camp programme and would like to once again acknowledge and thank all camp helpers who have made these events possible. The experiences at camp have certainly built resilience in the students. With the focus on personal excellence, that is being the best you can be, it was pleasing to see all students striving to overcome their challenges. 

We have had an exciting finish to the term as all classes attended the large ball festival at the Edgar Centre.  It was a hive of activity with class teams playing futsal, volleyball and netball. Sport was definitely the winner on the day, with all teams displaying enthusiasm and teamwork.

The beginning of next term is extremely busy with high school visits, either in the form of head teacher presentations, open evenings or open mornings. We understand that this can be an unsettling time for students, and parents, who are unsure about their secondary school options. A newsletter will come home early next term on which you can indicate the open mornings you would like your child to attend.
