We look forward to welcoming people back to school for the start of the new term on Monday 21 July.
Students and staff are currently enjoying a break from the regularity of the school day. But I’m sure there is reading, research and much creative activity taking place.
Our Annual Quiz night was a great event. Families, parishioners and friends joined us – a fun way to raise some additional funds for our school ! Thank you all for your support, especially our PTA organisers.
It’s a busy time as we head towards the end of the term. We’ve had our Prayers for Pentecost, been brushing up on our hockey skills with reps from Wellington Hockey in preparation for the upcoming WZ Hockey Tournament. We have three teacher trainees from Hong Kong with us for five days to get a taste of NZ schools. As this coming week is Technology Week, it’s a great opportunity for some real “hands on” experience.
Again this year as part of Leadership Week, our Year 7-8 students had the privilege of a senior public sector leader speak with them about leadership and the abilities that each of us has in shaping our lives. We were fortunate to welcome and spend time with Amy White, Manager Special Projects, Ministry of Women’s Affairs. Fascinating!
