Principal's Comments

Dear Parents and Caregivers

What an amazing night we had on the 7th November as we recognized the achievement of our senior students. Many thanks goes to all the many people that were involved in putting the whole show together, but in particular I would like to thank, Kathy McGovern, Ann Deihl, Sally Cribb and Aarti Menon. Logistics was never my strong point yet the massive logistical exercise that was involved in organizing the evening was amazing. Well done to you all.

Our Guest speaker Ezekiel Raui delivered a highly entertaining and thought provoking korero. In it he gave us some insights into overcoming adversity, making good choices but above all forgiving ourselves for mistakes and learning from them.

For our students there were many highlights. Not least was the announcement of our Dux for 2018, Monique Limmer and Proxime Accessit Lauren Hoskins.

The announcement of our new head students Renee Hurliman and Ryan Hall was received with much excitement. I look forward to working with you next year and I am sure that you will be well supported with our Deputy Head Students, Grace Waldon and Kirsty Parker.

To our outgoing head students Monique Limmer, Cory Gurr and  Deputies Jaimee Cameron and Angel Ward, thank you so much for the hard work and leadership you provided this year.

2018-2109 Head Students

To our school leavers, I wish you safe journey on your chosen pathways. It won’t be without bumps and potholes no pathway is smooth but my hope is that the school values of resilience, striving for Excellence, Innovation and whanaunatanga will continue to serve you throughout your lives.
