Senior Study Leave
Letters have been sent home today, to a number of Senior students, that are eligible for study leave. Friday 12 November will be the final day of regular school for these students. With one week remaining in our regular timetable, students still have time to achieve the number of credits required to be granted study leave from this date. Students will be working closely with their Ākina Coaches next week on their individual learning goals.
From Monday 15 November targeted catch up workshops, tutorials, study spaces and mentoring will replace our regular timetable. Students will need to check our website each day, in order to make the most of the time remaining.
Change of date for the Senior Prizegiving
Due the new exam timetable we have moved our Senior Prizegiving to the morning of Friday 10 December. This event will be students and staff only and live streamed on our Facebook page for our whānua.
Year 13 Leavers
We have finalised our Year 13 Leavers event. After gathering student voice we have decided to have a farewell afternoon tea and presentation following our senior prizegiving on Friday 10 December. This will take place outside Te Rourou. As we are at Level 2 restrictions whānau will be unable to attend.
