Principal's Weekly Review

On Tuesday we held the last senior combined assembly for the year. Important information in relation to the external exams was presented, as well as the procedures to senior sign out on Monday the 3rd  of December.   This also provided a chance to thank the senior school as a whole for their contributions to their 2018 school year, and to acknowledge Year 11 and 12 students who will not be attending prize giving, but are leaving at the end of this year, all the very best for their future.

 

On Thursday we had the International Students’ Farewell.  This was an opportunity to acknowledge and thank our home stay families, and also to present leavening certificates to a large number of international students, some of which have been with us from three to five years.

 

Next Monday evening we look forward celebrating the Senior Prize Giving and Year 13 Graduation.  This evening celebrates the success and talents of our students, and I invite all family and whānau to join us at 7.00pm at the Horncastle Arena in Addington.
