Principal's Weekly Review 16th April 2021

Kia ora,

As the term draws to a close, I want to thank you all for your support and understanding in what has been somewhat challenging term with the return to Alert Level 2 in February and March which necessitated in the school actioning its Emergency Response Plan, and the postponement or cancellation or a number of events.  

Moving into Term 2, the school will look forward to hosting such things as:

· Senior Parent/Teacher Evening - Tuesday 11th May, 6.00pm - 9.00pm

· PPTA Accord Day - Thursday 13th May (school closed for instruction)

· Open Evening on Tuesday 25th May from 6.30pm, which provides an opportunity to showcase the school to potential student enrolments with guided tours and displays. 

· Senior Formal - Friday 18th June

· School Production 28th June - 3rd July 

I would like to acknowledge and thank our wider community for your support during the term.  Whether this is in relation to student classroom learning, attending student performances, coaching or managing teams or groups, being part of the PTA etc, your help is greatly appreciated.  It has been a very busty term, and there have been successes and much to celebrate.


Sadly we will be saying farewell to a number of long serving staff members:

Ms Sue Brydges-Jones, Mathematics 

John Hill, Assistant HOD Technology 

Mrs Robyn Haseman, Library Assistant

Mrs Alex Bryant, PE, (maternity leave)

As a school and a community we would like thank them for their dedication, valued service, and contribution to our school and education in general.  Their contribution has been immense and we wish you all the best. 

The whole staff is committed to doing their best to help and support our students to achieve.  The holiday period is an opportunity for both groups (staff and students) to balance out some school work with a bit of a rest and relaxation.  We look forward to seeing everyone back for Term 2.

 Ngā mihi nui 

Jeff Smith
