Principal's Weekly Review 26th February 2021





Kia ora,

The school marked the 10th anniversary of the February Christchurch earthquake on Monday.  There was a lunchtime musical concert, short acknowledgement, and a moment of reflective silence at 12.51pm.

At this week’s Board of Trustees meeting, the annual election of the Board Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson was held.  I am pleased to announce that the Board Chair for 2021 is Shane Watson, and the Interim Deputy Chair is Tina Barriball.

On Thursday we held our Year 10 – 13 ‘Meet and Greet’ evening.  It is important that families/whānau and caregivers have the opportunity to meet subject teachers, and get an overview of the year’s learning.  I would like to thank the community for supporting this event, and for the positive feedback.  

The cooler weather did not daunt the students participating in Friday’s inaugural full school Athletics Day. The major focus was to foster school spirit and PRIDE values. Year 13 Peer Support students worked with their form classes, and the day culminated with the staff vs students’ relay race.  Thanks to all staff and students involved.  The Year 13 Peer Support leaders continue to support the Year 9’s integration into their new school, and are doing a wonderful job.  It is important that school culture and values are clearly articulated to our new students so that we can build upon our growing reputation as a school that supports individual achievement through high expectations, positive work ethic, and a strong sense of social responsibility.

On Monday 1st March we will be holding our Academic Celebration Day.  This is an opportunity to celebrate the Merit, and Excellence Endorsements from the 2020 NCEA results.  

Ngā mihi nui
