Principal's Pānui

by Principal

As we come to the end of Term 2, I wish to thank all of our students for their leadership and for their service to our school. Not only did we celebrate a service day earlier in the term, but since then, groups of students have continued to help in the wider community by giving of their time and of their skill. Thank you to my colleagues also, who continue to give so much of their time in order for our learners to be better than before so that they can continue to make a positive difference where they stand.
