Kia Ora Tātou
It was great to see our students participating and enjoying the college Athletics Day last Friday. There was a very positive atmosphere and great turn-out for the many events. Thank you to the staff who organised the day, especially our Physical Education staff and Sports staff, and the Prefects who led their houses and fellow students.
Athletics Day marks a shift in the school calendar. The big whole-school events are now over for Term 1 and the focus starts to shift to field trips (for senior classes) and class work.
By now, most senior students should have one or more internal assessments (i.e. assignment) to work on. All students should have a course calendar or ‘weekly planner’ that lists when their assessments occur through the year. I encourage you to discuss these with your child(ren) and how they will manage the workload, alongside other co-curricular or out-of-school commitments they have.
Following on from the school Athletics Day, a number of our students participated at the Central Eastern Zone Athletics Championships. Congratulations to the students involved, especially Charles Devlin, Alice Webster-McNamee, Aimee Court, Hope Makiri-Hennings, Lila Baroumandi, Angus Monro, Sophie Court and Holly Harding who placed in their events. Our sports department have provided a fuller report on our students’ success later in the newsletter.
This week was Summerfest, a week-long celebration of the Arts at interval and lunchtime. It has been lovely to see live music performances, theatre sports, the college choir singing in the college Quad and other activities around the school. Well done and thanks to the staff and student leaders who organised this.
Student Strike for Climate
You may have read or seen in the media about a proposed ‘Student Strike for Climate’ on Friday, 15 March 2019. The proposed gathering in Auckland is from 12pm – 3pm at Aotea Square. The college will operate as per normal on that day with the expectation that students attend class. Any students not at school will need their parents’ permission as with any other absence and will be under the parents’ responsibility.
