Kia ora koutou
It was awesome to see the students from Te Anau Primary and Mararoa School visiting Fiordland College this week. I really hope that all of our future 2023 students were able to use the day to get excited about the next step in their learning journey.
With just 8 school days left in the year, I thought it was important to remind our community that we're not on holiday quite yet. These last couple of weeks are valuable learning time for our Year 7 through to Year 10 learners and exams continue for our Year 11-13 students. You can support your child by reminding them that they need to remain focused on their achievement, their engagement and the behaviours that support their learning. Arriving prepared, on time, appropriately dressed and ready to learn will help the final few days of 2022 continue to be successful ones for all our students.
