Welcome to 2022!

Kia ora koutou katoa,

As the school year begins, it has been a pleasure to welcome our new and returning students to school. After a very disrupted end to the year for all in 2021, our students have returned to school with a sense of positivity and enthusiasm about learning onsite. Our Year 9 students were welcomed to the school with a virtual pōwhiri, and were supported to familiarise themselves by our Year 12 and 13 peer support leaders.

During Term 1 we will continue to provide you with the ‘Traffic Light’ engagement reports which we commenced during lockdown last year. In addition to any communication you may have with subject teachers, these reports will give you an indication of your student’s engagement in their subjects. Our priority for this term is to ensure that our students are in-class, engaged in their learning, and making the most of every opportunity that our school
offers them.

This year we have introduced a ‘Hauora Habits’ class for one hour each week for our year 11 students. This class will focus on providing academic mentoring, well-being, and life skills support for students as they enter their first year of NCEA. We know that the transition from being a junior to a senior student is an important time, and this class will provide a further opportunity to support students to be healthy, happy and successful young adults.

Ngā mihi,
Rachel Hamlin
(Acting Principal)
