From The Principal's Desk

Dear Parents

If there's a founding principle underlying our school vision, it is grounded in offering opportunities to rise to a challenge and strive to achieve new things.

Seeing the positive, mutually supportive sense of community that was evident at Camp Adair with the Year 6's last week was a perfect example of this. The students were energised by the experience, and excited to share stories of their many challenges and successes. For the younger children, our Junior School Fun Run was also an event characterised by fantastically positive attitudes, resilience and a sense of determination.

It's always hugely rewarding to see the children approach new experiences with such enthusiasm, but I am also always tremendously impressed by the level of encouragement that our students offer to each other. The willingness to rise to a challenge with the support and encouragement that our students consistently show is a measure of success that I believe any learning community can be justifiably proud of.

Looking ahead, we also have further challenges to look forward to this week during the Senior School Fun Run and Year 5's trip to Brikenhead Leisure Centre, which are sure to provide further opportunities to see our school values in action.

Screens Donation: Thank you to Cathy Tyler for organising a donation of 2 handy media display screens thanks to a refurbishment at Auckland University School of Business. The school office is looking a little more high tech than usual as a result!


Hi All

The Entertainment Book will be sent home with your eldest child tomorrow. As a VIP member of their group, we are allowed to take the books home to have a look at all the vouchers and options for saving money. If you do not wish to purchase the book, simply return to the school office. These books soon pay for themselves with plenty more bargains to boot. Take a few minutes to have a look.
