Principal's Welcome 

Thursday, 13th April 2017


Kia ora,

Term 1 has been a very busy term with lots of school events, co-curricular activities, camps and trips all taking place. 

Tonight, the first of our international trips heads away as approximately twenty of our senior students travel to China.  I wish the students and staff (Ms Rothbart, Ms Harduar and Mr Liu) a safe journey. 

Thank you to everyone involved in providing the many other opportunities for our students through term 1 ….. staff, parents and volunteers.  Our students enjoy a wonderful range of opportunities in and beyond the classroom, thanks for your support.

I especially thank the Senior Leadership Team – Mr Robertson, Mr Chand, Mrs Hewetson and Mr Singh – for their wider leadership of the college.

As students now head away to the holidays, I encourage them to find some time to relax and recharge – reading a book, watching movies, etc. This is especially so for the senior students who may also have NCEA internal assessments to work on over the break.

These holidays are also a good chance for you to catch up with your child(ren) about their goals for this year – academic, personal, co-curricular. 

How do they believe that they are going in class?  Are they getting the grades they are aiming for?  Are they in the team or group that they wanted?  What are their goals for next term, and how can you help?

Our students are amazing, talented young people.  With their energy and your support, it is great to see them succeed as well as they do at Glendowie College – in and out of class.

I wish you and your family a relaxing time together over the Easter and holiday break.
