Newsletter 3rd March 2017

Parent Student Teacher day interviews. We had 76% of our student body meet Whanau teachers with their parent / caregiver to set the scene for 2017. Year 7 students got to meet their Whanau teacher who will be a key point of contact over the next 7 years. Year 8 to 10 students talked about their academic and other goals and how they were going to achieve them. Year 11 students did this plus discussed NCEA level 1 and what is required. Year 12 students discussed their 2016 results and what they need to do for 2017 and finally year 13 students did the same as year 12 but looked at pathways to further education or employment post schooling. The key now is to continue to work with the parent / caregiver, the student and the teachers in a learning partners model so that we ensure all of our students are successful. We look forward to working with you all.

The Athletics Sports was another very successful event which students enjoyed. Congratulations to Sutherland who won the event and thank…
