Principal's Weekly Update
RAISE Goal: to celebrate everything that I have achieved this year
Te reo phrase of the week: haere atu ki te wharepaku (Go to the toilet)
While attending the Year 8 Dinner on Wednesday night, I could not help feeling a sense of pride in our year 8 leavers and also our school in general. This year’s group of year 8s is the largest group that we have ever had. The students’ passion, memories, and gratitude that they shared with the audience through their speeches and comments throughout the night was truly heart-warming. A big thanks must go to Miss Rawcliffe for organising such a wonderful event and the whanau in attendance who adhered to all of our Covid requirements.
Next week is our last full week of school. Next Friday your child/ren will receive their Term 4 written report and they will also spend a session with their 2022 teacher and classmates. It’s always a great way of ‘breaking the ice’ before the start of the new school year and ensures our students are set up for success from the beginning of the year.
Kia pai to wiki (have a wonderful weekend).

We should work together for the wellbeing of everyone.
We also were busy using the laser cutter and then decorating some super special ornaments to bring home. It was very exciting to also use a power tool and drill some holes!
