Pourerere Tides and Rock Pool Trip

The two Great Outdoors Hubs recently visited Pourerere Beach. While exploring, our girls patiently observed the rock pools, finding and identifying lots of interesting wildlife including kina, paua, hermit crabs, sea stars and even octopuses. At the end of the day, the only thing we left behind was our footsteps and beach art....


Level 3 Kete have been learning about buying cars this week including how to change a tyre and check the oil and water. Thanks to our School Gardener, Jason, for your expertise.

Universities Visiting HGHS

This is your chance to hear about what courses they offer and what the entrance requirements are, etc. Even if you're not sure what tertiary study you want to do when you leave school, come and listen - it may give you some ideas you haven't thought about. Even if you don't get your UE, many universities now offer bridging courses to pathway you into a degree. There are also lots of scholarships on offer and other information sessions so please put the below dates on your calendar:
