Kia ora, it has been a busy few weeks.
A big focus this term has been ensuring our senior students have gained all the credits they can before getting prepared for exams. It’s been really pleasing seeing many students take ownership of their learning, making study plans and complete last-minute internal assessments.
In Week 3 there were three big celebrations: our Sports Awards, Hui Whakapūmau (our Year 13 graduation) and Senior Prize Giving. It was fantastic to see so many of our ākonga up on the stage receiving awards and acknowledgement for all the mahi they have put into their studies and extracurricular activities this year.
It was really exciting to see the number of students receiving University scholarships next year also, there were so many they barely fit on the stage! Again, a great reward for all the hard work these students have put in with the support of our Careers Department and their teachers.
With the seniors now focusing on their NCEA exams, the school is a bit quieter. Our juniors still have plenty to look forward to with field trips and activity days planned for later in the term. It’s great to see the warm sunny days return to support these activities.
