Principal's Weekly Review 14th December 2018

On Friday we finished off the year with two wonderful Junior Prize-Givings, and I would like to thank the family/whanau members who were able to attend. We have had a very successful year, and it is important to note that we are making a difference for our students and they are doing very well. 

This school is full of many wonderful and talented students, who have contributed in a very positive way to their academic achievement, and co-curricular involvement.  They have a strong sense of social responsibility, and I am very proud of what they have achieved, and the manner in which they have conducted themselves.

I would also like to acknowledge and thank our parents, whanau, and the wider community for sharing in the responsibility of educating our young people.  Without your support we cannot achieve and give the students the opportunities they deserve.

Equally, I would like to thank and acknowledge our students and community for supporting our fundraising for charitable organisations this year.  In particular Ronald McDonald House.

I wish the Papanui High School community a safe and happy Christmas and holiday period.  I look forward to 2019 in the knowledge that, as a school and a community, we will continue to work together to provide our students an education that is supportive, caring, and developed in a “forward thinking” way.
