Kia ora tātou
With two busy and productive terms now behind us, I am sure that many of our students will welcome the next two weeks of holiday.
Our senior students have had a number of internal assessments, and will probably have some to work on over the holidays. The holidays are a good chance to catch up or get ahead with schoolwork. They are also an important time to relax and unwind. I hope that all students will find some time out over the next two weeks to rest and recharge. Similarly, our junior students work hard in their studies and it is important for them to get their minds off school and rest.
We issue school reports to all students today. You can also get more information about your child’s progress on the Parent Portal, which you can access via the college website. Please contact your child(ren)’s Dean(s) or Assistant Dean(s) early next term if you have any questions about your child(ren)’s report, or need help accessing the Parent Portal.
Farewell to Mr Singh
One of our Deputy Principals, Mr Singh, leaves the college to take up a position at Teach First NZ where he will work in their graduate teacher programme. Mr Singh has played an important role in the ongoing development of ICT at the college and led various programmes such as professional learning at the college. On behalf of the college, I thank Mr Singh for his contribution to the college during his time with us, and wish him well in his next role.
If you have reason to pass through the college, you will see the new Quad rapidly taking shape. We expect to start laying the new pavers, and then the Parents’ Association will plant the gardens. My thanks in advance for their generous and ongoing support of the college.
I wish you safe travel if you are leaving Auckland. Whether you stay local or travel outside Auckland, I hope that you and your family enjoy a relaxing two weeks of holiday.
Ngā mihi nui,
