Kia ora koutotu katoa

 Our very successful term continues in so many ways.  Winter sports competitions are winding up and our teams have again been extremely successful on a number of levels and in a variety of sports. Once again we have provided more teams than ever before in a range of sports and competitions. This  success and high level of participation is a tribute to the efforts of students getting involved but also all those coaches and managers that give so freely of their time.  Thank you for your efforts this year.   A big thank you must go to Lee Greig our sports coordinator who does so much hard work to support all of this sporting involvement.

 The arts endeavours within the College continue to be on a roll with the success of our students at the “Southern Jam Youth Festival”.  A big thank you to staff and parents who supported this great opportunity for our students.  Our success at Bishop's Shield was fantastic. I am most proud of how our students represented the College with their positive and friendly approach to interacting with everyone at the event, something commented on by a number of people attending the weekend. Similarly our House Drama evening was an enthusiastic and entertaining night as always. A big congratulation’s to all involved.

 Our Open Day was extremely successful and we have received a lot of positive feedback about the welcoming nature of the College.  I would like to thank all those students that made themselves available to welcome potential student and families to the College. We are receiving more interest in enrolment than ever before which is positive however, I would encourage all those with families and friends seeking enrolment at the College in 2018, to get their applications in as soon as possible. It is likely that  enrolment to the College will be limited and we would like to avoid any disappointment regarding lack of positions after enrolment closes.


God Bless
