Dear Parents and Caregivers

Senior Learning Conferences

You will have received notification either by email or letter that the senior learning conferences will be held at School on June 29 from 2.00 - 7.00pm. In the communication you are asked to indicate which hourly time slots you would prefer.  Students will be dismissed from school at 1.00pm.


During these conferences, discussions will cover learning and achievement to date and the steps needed for the remainder of the year. This is an opportunity for parents, students and teachers to work together and support achievement and personal excellence by students. Please indicate your preferred time slot as soon as possible.


Lions Supporters Learning Inquiry

From Tuesday, 20th to Thursday 22nd, Year 10 students as well as some Year 8’s from Tainui and Amisfield Full Primary Schools worked in groups to develop a supporters’ package for visiting Lions supporters. Teachers, Martin Ash and Rachel Toy organised and managed the activity. Students had to develop effective teams, use their imagination, have good research, problem-solving and time management skills. We noticed extremely high levels of engagement in learning and it was an opportunity for students to develop future-oriented learning skills. The activity culminated in a presentation and awards evening last night.


Netball Success:

Congratulations to Bernadette Te Rore-Hose and Shuntay Daniel on their selection in the Cambridge/Putaruru/Tokoroa Cluster Under 15 Netball Team. Other players in the Under 15 and Under 17 groups were unlucky to miss out. Thanks must go Taneta Riki for her hard work re-invigorating Forest View Netball and creating opportunities for players to develop their talents. Thanks also go to the many parents supporting the team on Saturdays.


Parent Consultation Evening:
