2018 Top House Activity Day – Friday 8th of December
On Friday 8th December Year 9 and 10 students will be participating in our annual top house activity day. This will be a normal school day (8.30am - 2.30pm).
The day will start with a form time in the Graham Condon Gym at 8.30am, then for the remainder of the day students will rotate (in form classes) around six 45 minute activities which include; Swiss/volleyball, a general knowledge quiz, tabloids, and a design challenge. For the first time Year 10 students will participate in the interactive Road Safety Road Show and Year 9 students will visit the Whare to learn Tikanga Māori, and the school song and Haka.
As students will be competing against other classes, and also other houses they are encouraged to wear house coloured clothing on the day. (It is important for health and safety that students wear appropriate clothing such as sports shoes for practical activities). Mr Whippy, hot chocolate and mini donuts will also be available for purchase at lunchtime.
PHS Workday 2017
Papanui High School Workday: 30 November 1.00pm to 2.30pm
This work day is for all Year 9 and 10 students to raise funds to support Ronald McDonald House. This is an incredibly important organization that supports unwell children and their families. Our school wishes to sponsor a room in their Cashel street building by raising at least $5,000 for this cause.
The target is for each student to raise a minimum donation of $10 total for the equivalent of one and half hours work.
Monies can be deposited through the School bank account 12-3147-0225793-00 with a reference "(Students Name), Workday" or the money can be paid through the school office. The closing day for payment is Tuesday 5th December 2017.
The Senior School also contributed a donation this term prior to being on examination leave through a mufti day. On Thursday 30 November teaching staff not involved with this event will be on site participating in professional development from 1.00pm.
If members of our school community know of employment possibilities for students for Work Day they can phone the school office on 03 3526119. We would greatly appreciate this support.
The Work Day gives students the opportunity to work in their community for the benefit of others, to learn new skills, to meet new people and for some this may lead to ongoing employment.
