I hope everyone had a lovely holiday and has started this term well and rested.  It is a busy term as we gear up for the NCEA examinations in November and for our Carol Service and end of year Prize giving in December.   

Today the Year 11 Art students have completed their folios for NCEA. These represent many hours of dedication and talent and the students can be proud of the quality of work they have produced over the year. 

On Thursday, the school successfully joined in with the NZ Shake Out at 9.30am.  This week students have also discussed family plans for if, and when, an earthquake should occur at home and at school.  These are good conversations to have at home, around the dinner table, to ensure your child knows what to do in case of an emergency, especially if it occurs away from home.  I must do this again with my own children!

Many of you will know that Anne Winnall has been away in St Louis these holidays and this week.  We congratulate her and the Wellington City Chorus for their impressive gold medal at this international competition.  You can read more about this on Facebook and in this Update.   Have a safe and relaxing Labour Weekend break.  As temperatures start to improve, please remember all students need to be in summer uniform on Tuesday.
