Year 13 Magazine Photos
During Ākina time next week, on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, we will be taking the Year 13 individual photos for the school magazine. Please can all Year 13s come to the main office on a day that best suits them for their photo.
How are we doing survey
Earlier in the week, we emailed whānau seeking feedback on our communications over lockdown and our return to school plan. If you haven't already completed this survey, we encourage you to do so. We do value your feedback as it helps us as we move forward and refine our processes. To complete the survey, click here.
Security Cameras going up
To help keep our students safe and for security purposes, we have installed a number of security cameras in and around the school. Cameras which have been placed on internal walls monitor hallways and key areas such as traffic going in and out of the toilet areas. Students have been communicated with about this earlier in the year.

2021 Support Plan for Senior Learning Goals
Please see below our plan to provide students the best possible opportunity to obtain their learning goals. The plan shows four layers of support available to students in Term 4. Students will be placed into a group, according to the criteria outlined; this considers student, staff and whānau voice.
Students do not need to meet all criteria, as this is only a guide to help the decision-making process. Senior Reports will be sent out next week, with information to help with this process. By sharing the plan now, students have an opportunity to work towards Group 4 by 15 November, so they will be eligible for study leave.
