Principal's Comments

Dear Parents and Caregivers

Mai Biz:

Congratulations to all the students that took part in the Mai Biz programme. This was a business simulation exercise mainly for our year 12 students. The budding entrepreneurs made a big impact on the judges and they felt sure that a future Bill Gates may be among them!


Congratulations to Shenell Poturu-Kawhena on her appointment to the Careers and Guidance position. I am sure that the students will be well served by Shenell’s enthusiasm. Shenell has already organized for all our students to attend the careers expo at the Tokoroa Events Centre.


On the 5th June there was an unfortunate accident at the school which resulted in Mr Haines and Lucas Takhar being seriously injured in a fall from a scaffold tower. Both Mr Haines and Lucas were admitted to Waikato Hospital with moderate to serious injuries. We wish both Mr Haines and Lucas all the best as they undergo their recovery. 

As a result of this accident and the subsequent closure of the auditorium we have had to cancel our school production “Robin Hood”.

Senior reports and Learning conference:

At the time of writing school reports are being prepared by our teachers for our senior students. These reports will detail your child’s progress to date and the next steps they need to make in their learning. Reports can be collected at the Senior Students Learning Conference (2.30 – 6.00) on the 28 June.
