Jade Te Rure, the first-five for the Turbo's answered a long line of questions that ranged from the path he has taken to achieve what he has achieved, to his views on fashion, to how he develops the mental strength required to be a professional sports person.

BOARD OF TRUSTEES UPDATE 
 
As we draw near to the end of what has been  another busy term, we would like to thank the students and parents/caregivers for the wonderful, diverse learning and support you have all shown. With the winter season behind us many are looking forward to summer season sports and challenges.
 
We would like to keep the learning community up to date with the process of appointing a new Deputy Principal and Year 0-1 teacher for 2015. We are currently finalising the appointment pack and will be advertising over the next month. We have a strong appointment panel that will be leading this process.
 
Our teachers are also learners and as a Board we have been excited to see the growth in our teachers so far this year. Of particular note has been  their on going development of reading expectations for all year groups, the school wide inclusion of environmental education within our classroom programmes as well as the identifications and strengthening of what effective teaching and learning looks like. Staff have been all sharing in the leadership  and learning  within these areas.
