Kia ora koutou katoa

 It has been great to be out and about over the past few weekends watching the College sporting teams. It is always really noticeable the camaraderie and spirit with which our teams play and treat each other.  I am also really thankful for the high level of positive support of whanau that are always there to support our students’ endeavours.  We continue to have an impressive involvement in school sports which I believe is so important to the development of students of the College in so many ways.  The lessons learned about being a good teammate and dealing with the ups and downs of sporting success help teach and prepare our students for challenges that they may come across. 

 I continue to be really impressed with the hard work and preparation going into the Production “All Shook Up” and the work that went into the Stage Quest performance recently.  Again the students rise to the challenge of putting themselves out there and working as a team to deliver outstanding performances.  The bonds and friendship that are forged through these activities are really important for students and will underpin some great memories long after they leave school.

A big thank you to the staff and parents that supported the year 7 camps we really appreciate the time people put into supporting this event. I have had so much positive feedback about the students and the camps despite the challenging weather.

Please continue to keep in your prayers those in our community that are ill at the moment or have family challenged with illness. We pray for their recovery and that they feel the Grace of God at this time


God Bless
