Awards and Leavers

We had a moving Awards Ceremony last evening. The turnout was magnificent, as we scrambled to provide seating for everyone. I want to honour our parents/caregivers for their partnership with the school to produce such fine graduates as we saw last night. Congratulations again to all our award winners. Kia mau koutou ki nga kupu o Te Atua. Holdfast to the Word of God.

Uniforms

As we look to the beginning of 2020 there a few things that should be noted about uniform and purchase of new uniform items.

Firstly, please note that while we have changed the logo and name students can wear uniform with old logo/name until it wears out.

There have been a number of girls that appear to have shortened the skirt (or rolled the waistband). It should sit at the knee and we want to see this standard maintained, so it may be necessary for some to purchase new skirts.

It should also be noted that the shoes are to be entirely black, without logo, or white/coloured soles. A number of students have been wearing incorrect footwear and we would like to see the standard maintained.

Thanks so much for your help with this as it makes life easier for staff and students and reduces unnecessary conflict.

Start Up

The first day of school for students of all levels is Wednesday 29 January. Please check your transport arrangements and whether they will be running by this date, particularly if you use the school bus service.

Ko matou te whanau e tiakina i o  tamariki. We are one family, caring for the children.

Merry Christmas and a blessed and prosperous New Year to all
