Principal's Weekly Review 25 June 2021

Kia ora, 

I would like to start by acknowledging and congratulating the students who attended the senior formal last Friday night at the Wigram Air Force Museum.  Our students showed the utmost respect for the occasion, and were outstanding ambassadors for our school.  They 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, reflecting the genuine interest they have in the students, and share in the occasion.

We have now completed Week 8 of the term.  With only two weeks to go before the end of term, our students continue to be very busy both in and out of the classroom.  Over the next two weeks a large group of Year 12 students will be involved in a mountain bike and camping experience at Hanmer Springs, a group of students will travel to Dunedin for the ‘Brain Bee’ Neuroscience challenge, the Year 12 Leadership group will attend a conference at Christ’s College, and of course the large number of students involved in our sell-out production of ‘Grease’. 

Over the weekend a number of our students and staff will be supporting the thousands of people from around the country who will be taking part in this year’s World Vision 40 hour famine.  At the combined assemblies earlier in the month, a guest speaker from World Vision spoke at the about who World Vision is raising money for this year. This is the first time money is being raised for a region, and that is how dire the situation is in Sub Saharan Africa due to the Covid pandemic.   This provides a great opportunity to think of others, and contribute to their welfare and wellbeing. 

I would like to remind parents and caregivers that if you need assistance with items of winter uniform for your child, please contact Miss McConnel, our Assistant Principal email:  [email protected]
