NCEA Examinations, prizegivings and farewells.

November already! It is incredible how time flies and that the NCEA examinations are upon us once again! The seniors are deep in revision with many of them making the most of the tutorials run in school by the dedicated WBHS staff. Even I have been busy doing some Maths tutoring and making sure we are all up to date in my favourite subject. All the staff in Carruth House wish all those sitting NCEA examinations all the very best.


This half term we have been looking at the school values of Tika and Pono. Tika is all about correctness, being true, upright, right, just, fair, accurate and appropriate.


At the school's senior prizegiving a number of Carruthians received well deserved awards (see photos, below). To all who received awards; WELL DONE! Your hard work and dedication to your studies have paid dividends.


Although the seniors have gone, we still have our Year 9 and 10 students until their prizegiving in December. We have been making very good use of the school pool and now with summer sports upon us, many are involved in cricket. Very soon we will be welcoming a new group of Year 8's for a sleepover - this is the group of boys who will begin boarding life in 2020. We always have some late applications, however, if you know of anybody who is thinking about Carruth House and WBHS for 2020, please tell them to get in touch with me ASAP!
