Waipawa Bus Meeting

We are hosting a meeting at the Otane Hall on Thursday 26 May for the families of students who travel by bus to school from Otane, Waipawa and Waipukurau.


We wish to bring to your attention the uniform expectations for jewellery.  Years 9-12 are able to wear one earring in the lower lobe.  We ask that this is a stud. By Wednesday we ask that you support us by getting your daughter to remove extra piercings which includes facial piercings.

Defensive Driving Course

Completing a defensive driving course knocks 6 months off getting your full drivers licence (1 year instead of 18 months).

We will be running a course at school over the last two weeks of term:

Tuesday 28 JuneSession 13.15 -5.15pm
Thursday 30 JuneSession 23.15 -5.15pm
Tuesday 5 JulySession 33.15 -5.15pm
Thursday 7 JulySession 43.15 -5.15pm

We have been fortunate to be given funding for this and the cost to you is $125.00 (normally $225 - this is subsidised by the school STAR funding).

Students interested should see Maxine in the Student Centre to pick up an information/permission slip.

Concussion Framework Project

On Thursday 2 June at 7pm there will be a 30 minute online information session about concussions (the link will be circulated in next week's Pānui). This session can be attended by all parents, coaches, managers, volunteers - regardless of the sport their children participate in. The purpose of the Concussion Management Guidelines is to provide school staff, coaches, parents/caregivers, and medical personnel with information on concussion management within the school setting. 

The aim is to ensure that all students who sustain concussion are well managed in their return to learning and activity. Hastings Girls' High School is currently participating in a Pilot project to introduce concussion guidelines within the school (including injuries across all sports, and non-sporting activity (accidents, etc). This will ensure that suspected concussions incurred by students can be managed in a consistent and appropriate way. The project is being delivered in partnership with New Zealand Rugby, The University of Otago and Auckland University of Technology (AUT).
