Week 2 Term Three

Benchmark Examination Timetable

Please download the latest Benchmark Exam timetable here:

Please carefully check:
- when and where your exam is taking place (subject codes are the first three letters of that subject - i.e. Level 1 Samoan = 1 SAM on the timetable).
- if you have any clashes (two exams on at the same time) - if you find a clash, please email or talk to Mr Pera directly ASAP!

Then sign up for the space you would like to be in when NOT writing an exam on this form:

When not writing an exam, you must be in one of the classrooms shown on your exam timetable for that day and block. When there, you will be expected to be working on internal assessments or studying for your next exam. There is no study leave during Benchmark Exams.

Closer to the time you will get more information, tips and tricks to help you succeed. In the meantime, please contact Mr Pera with any questions you may have (email: pe@hastingsgirls.com).

Period Products have arrived

We are pleased to share that the Free Period Products initiative from the government has arrived. As of Monday students will be able to access free period products whenever they need them. Students can come to the student centre where the products are freely available from the cabinet outside Miss G office. Help yourselves.

Social Media Alert

We only have one Facebook and one Instagram account that is officially connected to our school. It has come to our attention that there are some fake accounts out there. We want you to be careful as they are asking students to send photos to use via social media. This is not ok and a breach of your privacy. Please be safe and if you have any concerns please come and talk to us.
