Principal's Weekly Review 11 June 2021

Kia ora,

I am hopeful, that despite the inclement weather, that the extended long weekend provided students with a well-timed break, and an opportunity to recharge as we move into the second half of this term.

We have a busy week coming up. Our Diversity council are running PRIDE week where we acknowledge and celebrate with our rainbow community. Students are invited to wear rainbow accessories to show support for this event. The Diversity council have also organised rainbow-themed events each lunchtime.  We end the week with the senior Formal which is being held at the Wigram Airforce Museum and we are all looking forward to what is always a great occasion for our senior students.  Monday signals the start of Semester 2 for our senior students, where many of them will begin new courses for the second half of their academic year.  We wish them well during this transition, and encourage them to continue to achieve their personal best in all that they do, both in the classroom and beyond.  On Wednesday we will hold our final combined assembly for the term.  These assemblies provide the opportunity to celebrate student success, and have our various councils inform them of upcoming student focussed events.

Staff have been busy recently, writing and preparing Junior academic reports.  These reports will provide important feedback, progress, and next steps, for your child’s learning.  The reports will be available towards the end of this term.

 It’s only two weeks until we present this year’s production ‘Grease’.  It is one of the largest productions our school has ever done, with a cast of 75, a live band composed entirely of students (22), and a 20-strong behind the scenes team.  Tickets are now on sale through the school’s website.  The show runs from Wednesday, 30th June until Saturday, 3rd July nightly at 7.00pm with a matinee on Saturday at 2.00pm.  Tickets have already sold out for both the Friday and Saturday night performances.
