Congratulations to all of our teams who travelled to their respective tournaments last week. Their results were outstanding, and the best that we have enjoyed at the college. The results were as follows:
Our First XI team won their tournament in Whangarei. A superb result.
Both our Senior Boys’ and Junior Boys’ teams placed second, and we were the Top School overall in the national tournament in Wellington. Jackson Godfrey was the ‘Player of the Tournament’.
Our First XI team came third in Pukekohe.
Our First XI team came 7th in Levin.
Our Premier Team came 13th in the ‘B’ grade at the Upper North Island Secondary Schools (UNISS) tournament on the North Shore. This is our best result at UNISS and reflects the girls’ continued development.
Our First XI team came 8th in Taupo, their best result in several years.
I had the opportunity to visit three of the teams and was proud of how well the students played on the field, and behaved off it. Many thanks to the coaches, managers and volunteers who travelled with our students to support them.
Good luck to all senior students in their exams this week and next. These exams serve two purposes. Firstly, they help orient students towards the NCEA exams in November next term. In that regard, an important outcome is that students (and parents/whānau) know how they are progressing, and have a clear idea of what to study before November. Secondly, we base any derived grades on these exams, i.e. if your child is away sick on the day of an NCEA exam, he or she will receive a derived grade, which is largely based on these exam results.
Work has now begun on the new Weights Room/Garages project, and construction of the Science Block starts next Monday, 16 September. Please be aware that Gate 3 will be the primary site access for contractors and staff. It would be appreciated if you could avoid using this gate.
