WEST COAST SECONDARY & AREA SCHOOL PRINCIPALS’ ASSOCIATION
I met with the High School and Area School principals from across the West Coast on Tuesday. It was really good to share our stories and to support each other. The more we work together for our area the better!
If you need any support please talk to your mentor teacher, Dean, our Guidance counsellors or Bob or Shona. We all need some help at times and they are all working really hard to try and make Level 3 a bit easier.
If your family needs any extra support please contact Kiri Russell and she will do her best to help you, including delivering meals if you are in need.
You can call Kiri via the school office 768 0472, her cell 027 200 5666, or email her on email@example.com.
The Ministry of Social Development (MSD) has developed an online tool to help identify what types of financial assistance a person could be eligible for quickly and easily: Check out what you might get | Ngā āwhina tērā pea ka whiwhi koe
Please note, this is a guide and shows how MSD can help a person or whānau. Once the application form is submitted, MSD will be able to work out the exact financial assistance they will receive. This service is only available to New Zealand citizens and residents.
A reminder that Mummhg’s Kai are shutting up shop from the end of term 3. If anyone is interested in taking over the café please contact Raewyn on firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the school office.
We are delighted to announce that Ian Johnson from Christchurch is joining us on secondment as Assistant Principal, starting week 10 of this term. He has extensive knowledge of secondary education in large schools from his experience in Christchurch and overseas. His wife Lisa and their 2 dogs are also joining him, so as always, we are on the lookout for accommodation for them. If you know of anything, please get in touch.
