Head Boy Report

by Lucan Willis

Here we are, at the end of the 2018 senior school year and for a lot of us the end of our incredible Logan Park journey. The past five years that have made up my time as a Logan Parker have been packed to the brim with interesting, new and eye opening experiences and I been given endless opportunities to expand my worldview on life. I have such a deep love for this unique little school and although the realisation that I am moving on and out into the large and opportunistic world outside of school is a very exciting on it is also a very sad time for me as I move further away from this beautiful and quirky community.

Omimi House Report

by Jack Gilmore

This year Omimi has faced challenges and tribulations. It has been a different type of year for the house and its people. Some might call it an “off year”. But we’re still doing better than Toroa. The little stream has faced a bend in its triumphant journey. However we are still flowing strong with intent and purpose.

Head Girl Report

by Bella Rennie

It’s really quite hard to believe that I’m saying goodbye to this amazing school as I feel like I’ve only just said hello. It was only 3 years ago that I left behind a school which wasn’t even in the same universe as Logan Park. I was entering an unknown community, a school whose values and culture were completely different from what I had experienced prior. I was your typical awkward and insecure 15 year old, a spotty, brace faced girl who had no idea as to who she was and who she wanted to be.
