  We are rapidly approaching the end of another very successful term.  Staff are busily preparing reports on students’ progress during the first half of the year.  The importance of these reports is both to provide a record of achievement and also to provide some feedback on where students might work to improve their performance in the second half of the year. It is always important that students consider the feedback carefully towards continuing to find success in the second half of the year.

 As always the feedback is particularly important for senior students currently producing work for their NCEA qualifications. Feedback is provided to ensure that students are focussed on “striving to be the best that we can be" in our studies. It is timely at this stage of the year that senior students begin their focus on external assessment with practice examinations scheduled for the middle of next term.

 At the beginning of next term we are opening our enrolment for entry to the College for new entrants in 2018.  With the College roll at capacity we will be limiting our intake to the College. It is important that applications to the College are received as early as possible and to avoid any potential disappointment once our application processes close. Further information about the process will be supplied early next term.

 We are looking forward to concluding our term with a number of important events, year 11 Retreat, Inter-House Swimming Sports and our Inter-House Music Festival over these next two weeks.  

God Bless
