The term continues at a busy but positive pace. We have celebrated a very successful production of Joseph. It was a marvelous display of talent and hard work. School productions are always a major endeavour and the standard of this year's production was outstanding. Some of the big lessons for students involved are how to work as a team and having the confidence to commit to a high risk venture. The team work and camaraderie demonstrated by students was so pleasing to see. There were some outstanding performances throughout the show, however, the leads in particular deserve congratulations for their outstanding contribution. There were also many students behind the scenes involved in lighting, music and staging assisting those “up front” to shine. I congratulate you all on your efforts.

I would like to thank Alan Menzies and Jan Brown for their efforts in putting the Production together. We all appreciate the hard work and level of dedication required to make this event a success. Thank you also to those that sponsored the event. Your assistance in enabling us to put this Production on is greatly appreciated.

As a College we are focused on working in partnership with families to achieve the best results for the students of the College. A reminder to parents that if you have any questions or queries relating to your son’s or daughter’s progress or well-being we are always happy to hear from you. Year level deans and the College Counsellor, Mr James Mackay are available as your first port of call to assist with any queries that you might have and they are also only too happy to help you in any way.

The College is looking to set up a regular format for meetings with our Maori and Pasifika families so as a community we have a forum for the College to receive feedback on how we can best meet your needs. Families will receive information about these meetings in the near future. I am very much looking forward to working with whanau within this co-operative framework.

God Bless
