YR 13 Study Blocks
At this stage Yr 13 are to remain at school for their study blocks. You must report to the allocated classroom for attendance purposes and then you can go to the Library. This is to ensure that the students remain on the path to gaining their qualifications.
Yr 13s are allowed to leave at lunchtime but you must sign out at the Student Centre before leaving and sign back in when you return for Health and Safety purposes.
IMPORTANT - Wet day interval and lunch procedures
Normal (dry) Days:
No food may be eaten indoors at morning tea or lunch.
At the start of lunch, two bells will ring, which will mean that you are allowed to eat inside the corridors for lunch only. Even on wet/cold days, soup, etc must be eaten on the decks outside classroom blocks and not inside.
Futureopoly - Careers Expo
All Yr 12 students will attend the 'Futureopoly' Careers Expo event Tuesday 31 May. Te kaupapa of this event is to show you the careers/pathways that are available in industry in Te Mātau a Māui and beyond. It will help you make a more informed choice about what you want to do when you leave school. You will get to interact and ask questions of employers and get a more in-depth understanding of what is out there.

Concussion Framework Project
On Thursday 2 June at 7pm, there will be a 30 minute online information session about concussions (see link below). No registration required. Parents/staff can just log on at the appropriate time with the link. 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, University of Otago and Auckland University of Technology (AUT).

Sports Guidelines & Code of Conduct
All HGHS students involved in sports are reminded that academic achievement is our highest priority. Sport is not a right, it is a privilege. All students involved with sports are expected to attend school with a positive attitude and committed effort towards their studies. This guideline is to provide a tool for teachers in charge (TICs), managers and coaches to use when selecting players for game day. The following things should be taken into consideration, but not limited to:
- students should have an acceptable attendance level in order to play. If you are not at school on the day of your game, then you will not be able to play.
- students should be attending training. No training, no game time (unless a valid reason is provided e.g. tangi, or the student only able to attend one training per week due to choir practice commitments).
- students' sports fees should be paid. No fee, no play (unless a payment arrangement is in place). We also have a financial grant available that students can apply for, so fees should not be an issue.
- preferably, all students should have some game time, or at least a rotating substitute system to ensure that everyone gets a game.
- students should be communicating with their TICs, coaches & managers if they cannot make it to training or the games. They should not be relying on other students to pass on these messages. The student must take responsibility for themselves.
- students' behaviour both within school and in sports should be acceptable at all times. Any student causing any issues for a team manager or coach should be addressed with the TIC and/or Director of Sports.

Thanks to our friends at Apollo Projects, we have a grant available for students to apply for financial assistance with sports fees. The Sports Committee will make a decision based on the reasons outlined in the application. Please note your application will be anonymous. Click here to register: https://app.smartsheet.com/b/f...
