Dear parents and caregivers
The NZQA link below is a 6min video that explains how NCEA works.
We recommend you watch it if you haven’t seen before, or have some confusion around NCEA.
Senior students have been shown this video at school but if your daughter is in Years 9 or 10 you may suggest she watches it, in preparation for year 11.
Yesterday our Senior A basketball team played Craighead from Timaru. Craighead are one of the top performing south island schools. It was-great to see yr 10 – 13 girls playing in our team. Some good contributions from Heaven Samson-Loffley and Casey Kruishoop on offence and Riley Haugh and Louise Nicolson on defence.
A huge thank you to all those who attended Open Night – it was a fantastic evening and we loved meeting so many new faces. Also a huge thank you to all those who helped out – teachers, students, parents, board members, support staff. We could not have had such a smooth night without all of your assistance.
Author Michael Stevens visited us today after donating a book, along with Bridget Williams Publishing called ‘Tangata Whenua’. It is a beautiful book, and will be treasured and well used by our students. The Y10 & 11 Maori class listened to him talk and sang a waiata to acknowledge the gift. The Bridget Williams Publishing Trust have donated this book to school libraries across the country.
