Princiapl's Weekly Review 29 June 2018

I would like to start by acknowledging and congratulating, the students who attended the senior formal last Friday week.  Our students are wonderfully mature, and socially responsible, and these attributes were clearly demonstrated on the night.  It was also very pleasing to see so many staff attend (over 50), reflecting the genuine interest they have in the students, and in sharing in the occasion.


This week has been another busy week for many of our students. 


We had a large group of Year 12 students involved in a Mountain-bike camping experience at Hanmer Springs, a group of Year 11 students travelled to Dunedin for the “Brain Bee” Neuroscience Challenge, eleven members of the Student Council represented the school at the unveiling of our sponsored Teenage Room at Ronald McDonald House, our final combined assemblies for the term, and House Indoor Football Competitions at lunchtimes.


Next week, our Music students will leave on Tuesday and travel north on the Nelson music tour, twenty Year 12 students will attend the “Emerging Leaders” conference at Christ’s College with a number of other Christchurch schools, and a group of twenty students will travel to Auckland on Thursday and Friday to perform in the SOULcircle project (an organisation that stands for Sources Of Unconditional Love, actioning female empowerment, and gender equality), they will perform a 5 minute piece that includes, dance, singing, spoken word, and visual projection. 


Finally, I would like to remind parents and caregivers of the upcoming Junior Report Evening for our Year 9 and 10 students, on Thursday 5th July from 6.00pm through to 9.00pm in J Block.  We would encourage all parents and caregivers to make interview bookings via the school interviews website.  We look forward to seeing you there on Thursday.
