We come to the end of another term and it is hard to believe that time has passed so quickly this year.  This time is the beginning of a number of transitions at the College.  We begin the selection process for the leaders of the College for next year, our year 13 students have completed their applications for university and students at all levels are choosing their subject options for next year.

These transitions are both exciting and yet on occasions create nervousness about future. Our staff is always available to assist both students and parents in working through these transitions. My advice for students is that the best way to ensure successful transitions throughout their education is to continue to focus on outcomes that they can control such as continuing to focus in class and maintain a positive work ethic to ensure their success in the upcoming examinations. We have had a very positive year in terms of academic focus and students have developed a very pleasing base to their learning. It is now a matter for students to push themselves to their full potential and achieve to the highest level that they are capable of while striving for merit and excellence.

We have a number of special events in this last week; the Blues Assembly and our Interhouse Kapa Haka competition. I am looking forward to celebrating the success of our students at these two events. I would like to thank all those parents and coaches that have contributed to our students success in our sports and cultural opportunities over this last term. We are so appreciative of your assistance in delivering so many opportunities for our students.

God Bless
