BOOK OR BOX
Congratulations to Boston who was drawn out of the "smiley" box by the Peer Mediators. Boston received his "smiley" for making good choices in the playground. When his name was drawn he choose "BOX" and received a magic cube. Well done Boston. Thanks for setting such a great example to your fellow students.

BOARD OF TRUSTEES UPDATE 
 
Another chance for us to update you about what we have been involved  in as a Board. We are currently negotiating with the Ministry our property priorities for the next 10 years. We are in the next 12 months aiming to…
  • Upgrade our water supply and treatment system.
  • Remove the old pool and return to the area to grass.
  • Redevelop  the multipurpose room to include a full kitchen and an arts area.

In the next 2 years we aim to also create some additional learning spaces in room 1, 2, 8 and 3 to enhance these areas.

You will see our old pool area slowly being demolished as our students recycle and reuse materials from it for learning projects.

The Board would like to thank the Parent Group for their amazing organisation and preparation for our upcoming Quiz Night. This is always an outstanding evening and we would encourage you to get involved either by entering a  team or as a helper.
