Graeme Dingle Foundation Waikato Excellence Awards

There was a fabulous turnout from Forest View High at the recent Graeme Dingle Foundation Waikato Excellence Awards.  The Waikato Excellence Awards were held on Thursday 21st September at the University of Waikato Gallagher Performing Arts Centre. We were all humbled and honoured to hear about the 14 winners from our Kiwi Can, Stars and Career Navigator programmes - how they help and support their schools, their communities, their whanau and their peers. The winners inspire those around them to be the best they can be - so all our youth are connected and contributing members of our community.  Congratulations to Cory Gurr and Monique Limmer.

Calendar App

We are pleased to be able to provide to you the Parent Teacher Calendar App. - we believe this will be a most valuable tool for communication between your school and parents.

To download the App, just search your Play Store or App Store for the Parent Teacher Calendar App or  This is a free download.  Ensure that if asked, you accept Notifications, as this enables the ‘Push’ Notifications feature.  Once downloaded, select your Region (Waikato), then your school.  Next, tap on the calendar tab and wait a few seconds for your school information to load.  (This is also how you ‘refresh’ the calendar)

For your convenience, PTC App. pulls your own dates from your personal calendar and combines these with school dates so you can view them all at once.  Please don’t be alarmed if you notice your personal calendar entries displayed alongside School events.  School entries display as red dots on the calendar, and these are publicly visible. Your personal calendar entries will display as blue dots, and are only visible by yourself, on your own device.
