Operation Christmas Child
Thank you to all the families that have kindly filled one or more shoeboxes for Operation Christmas child. We had more than 30 boxes go out from our school, and our school and Renew Church combined managed to send 95 shoeboxes this year! A tremendous effort. Thank you to everyone. Many young lives touched and made glad, being shown that they are significant and hearing the gospel at the same time.
You are once again invited to attend our annual awards ceremony on Tuesday 11 December and be seated in the auditorium by 7pm. We love to acknowledge the achievement, effort and diligence of students. We will farewell our Y13 students, many of which have been here since Y1. The last day for students will be Wednesday 12 December as Staff will be engaged in Professional Learning on the 13th.
Current concerns- we have had recent scarlet fever and chicken pox cases in students. The meningococcal disease immunisation program will start early December targeting 13-20 year olds. This will not be done through schools. Information is on www.northlandhb.org.nz
Start dates for 2019
All students start school on Wednesday 30 January next year. I will give you the school terms and dates when finalised.
These finish Friday 30 November. It has been another successful season of running an Exam Centre here at the school. We have hosted students from two other local schools for these.
Some classes have been enjoying some different activities for the end of the year. Y9/10 groups have been learning to surf. Primary classes have visited the fire station and will visit St. Johns. There is a fund raising event for SPCA and also some fun days. Y12/13 students have an end of year camp tenting at Whananaki.
