Year 12 Study Information and Laptop Loans

During study blocks all girls must be in their timetabled study areas so that they can make the most of this time and also so that they can be marked present. We hope to allow Ākonga more control over their study time once good habits have been established so we will review study block attendance at the end of February before updating Ākonga and Whānau.

Devices can now be loaned through the library system. In order to do this, Ākonga must fill in the Covid survey here: https://app.smartsheet.com/b/f...

Then they can collect an application form from the Library and return it signed before loaning a device. Please remember that a phone is not a suitable device for school work.

Year 13 Study Information and Loan of laptops

As with Year 12s, all Year 13s must attend their timetabled study blocks until we review the system at the end of February. We hope to allow more freedom then, once good habits have been formed.

The Common Room is now open for use during interval and lunchtime, however we do encourage you to mingle with the rest of the school as well.

You are able to leave at lunchtime but you must sign out and back in before the start of block 3. This is a health and safety requirement for us as a school.

Laptops can now be loaned through the library system. In order to do this, fill in the Covid survey here: https://app.smartsheet.com/b/f... 

Then you can collect an application form from the Library and return it signed before loaning a device. Please remember that a phone is not a suitable device for school work

Message from the Finance Team

This year we have made a couple of changes to our finance operations at Hastings Girls’ High School.

New Bank Account

We would appreciate that any future online payments to the school are made to this bank account number.  Please include your daughters’ name as a reference. 

If you have an automatic payment to the school can you please update the account number.  If you have a large credit balance please consider stopping this payment as we can no longer use this money for Uniforms."
