Different seasons in life bring change and it is with sadness that we share with you Bud Christensen's decision to retire at the end of this year. Bud [Mrs C] is a remarkable person and teacher.

With a big push under the guidance of Nick Anneff, the Year 7 & 8 students have recycled most of the timber they will need for their soon to be constructed garden sheds.The Fashion group are now gathering their designs and moving into the next phase which will see them sewing their own unique hot-water bottle covers.

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.
