New Zealand Education
We often get variable messages in the press about the quality of NZ education whether it be related to achievement, new initiatives or student behaviour.
As we take student safety seriously, we have a few requirements around students leaving school during the day. We are not trying to delay you when you pick them up or cause any inconvenience but we do ask that you adhere to the following:
Welcome back to term four, a term packed full of final assessments, end of year reports, transition events and a few fun activities.
We start the term with great excitement as we celebrate the 2017 exhibition. Our Year 8 students are presenting a variety of very interesting and highly engaging inquiries. The exhibition is a culmination of all they have learnt as a student within the International Baccalaureate programme. Congratulations to you all. If you haven’t dropped in to see the exhibition it is open until 7:00pm today and until 2:30pm on Thursday.
It’s hard to believe that we are half way through 2016 and well into the winter months. With the holidays just around the corner we hope you have a relaxing couple of weeks with your children and enjoy the snow or sun if you are travelling out of NZ. If you are staying put in Auckland click here for some exciting activities happening in the holidays.
In the next few weeks we have a number of events and learning challenges planned – regular updates are provided through the weekly news (sent home on Fridays). Please also check the school website as it also has current information about events and happenings.
