As a school there have been many things to celebrate this term.
For instance, I think, the transition to high school for our Year 9's has been one of our best. I know speaking to them and observing them in the grounds, they show an exuberance and spirit for adventure that we will be able to harness in the future. Their challenge, as with all of the school, is to focus that energy into the academic experience that examinations will bring next term.
There are too many student achievements to name individually, but I did want to acknowledge our 5 Students of the Term: Salesi Takataka, Sofa Fesolai, Reuben Cook, Walter Savage and Rocko Jarvis-Child. These boys have displayed tremendous work ethic and a positive commitment to their learning. This award has been one in which I think we are able to show what success looks like currently at Otago Boys' High School.
I hope that you will have time with your son over the holidays to connect with him on his learning to date and to explore what opportunities he might like to take part in next term.
