Term Two Week 1

Teachers' Only Day Monday 9 May 2022

This Monday's nationwide Secondary Schools, Teachers' Only Day, has been set aside to support teachers with the implementation of the changes to NCEA and the wider strengthening of place based curriculum.  If a student requires supervision, please contact their House Dean.  All students are encouraged to work from home.

Ākina Group Photos

Over the next few weeks, Ākina Group photos will be taken during Ākina Time.  Students need to check the notices daily to find out when it is their turn.  Please ensure uniforms are perfect on the day. Further information will be available on how to order photos.

Year 13 photos

As the Ākina Groups come through for their photos, we will also be taking the Year 13 individual photos, which will be used to update Kamar and in the school magazine at the end of the year.  We plan to take the group Year 13 photos later in the term, once the Ākina Group photos are completed. We will let the Year 13s know closer to the time.

Concussion Management Pathway 2022 - Parent & Teachers Pre-Season Briefing

As part of New Zealand Rugby’s Community Concussion Initiative, on Wednesday 11th May 7pm, NZRU will be hosting an online briefing session for Parents & Teachers ahead of the new rugby season. This session will provide some insights towards potential signs/symptoms of a concussion, as well as the necessary actions to take to ensure a player’s safe and timely return to learning and sport. This event will be ideal for parents/teachers who want to understand more about concussion related injuries, and the most appropriate recovery process for their children/students. 

The session will commence at 7pm and last approximately 30 minutes. Please register in advance through this link: https://nzrugby.zoom.us/meetin...
