Remember it is Senior Mentoring Interviews this Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.  If you have not booked in an appointment yet with your daughter and her mentor please contact the school urgently to do so.  This means there is no usual school for Year 11-13 students, but school is usual for all Y9 and 10 girls.

A HUGE thank you to all the friends, family, staff, and students who supported the QHS Interact Club team at Relay for Life.

Many girls stayed for the whole 24 hours – with not many getting a lot of sleep!

To fundraise further for this causes the Interact Club is holding a purple mufti day on Wednesday, so don’t forget to wear purple girls!  
This was the biggest Rely for Life held in New Zealand ever, and after 24 hours there were some very tired, foot-sore and two slightly damaged students.

Relay for Life Fundraiser

muffins

Don’t forget the Relay for Life Fundraiser tomorrow at school! The Interact Group will be selling muffins and other yummy stuff tomorrow, so remember to bring some money to support the girls raising money for the cancer society, and if you have some time free on Saturday then head on down to the Caledonian and cheer the Queen’s girls on as they Celebrate cancer survivors and carers, Remember loved ones lost to cancer and Fight back by raising awareness and funds to support the work of Cancer Society.
