Liston College PTFA and staff were pleased to meet families who attended out new student BBQ on Monday 20th February.
After being postponed due to weather, the welcomed sunshine set the tone for a relaxing evening on our school fields. Our Principal, Mr Dooley and Deputy Principal, Mr Girven addressed students and their whanau before students eagerly introduced their loved ones to their new friends, classmates and teachers. It was a fantastic opportunity for our Liston College staff to meet new parents and to reconnect with Liston Old Boys, and perhaps most importantly to connect as a community beside our young men.
After spending time together and playing games with the prefects and their friends, students finished the night in the music department. Mr Davenport and Mrs Pascariu alongside KBB Music provided a “Give it a go evening” for students interested in joining the Beginner Band. Students learnt about what is involved in joining the band and were able to try out the different wind instruments on offer. Information regarding beginner band has been sent to students and caregivers via email.
We were also grateful to capture a special time, the beginning of the year 7s journey, by photographing each class with all members of their aiga. We’re sure this will be an image we look back on and reminisce. We look forward to fostering these new and strong connections, and encourage parents and whanau to continue to keep in touch with your son’s form or subject teacher.
After being unable to hold this event in recent years, we were very thankful for the lovely evening spent with the newest members of our community. Thank you to all families who were able to attend on the night and for providing a salad or dessert for everyone to enjoy. A very big thank you to our team of prefects and Liston College PTFA who worked tirelessly behind the scenes. The night wouldn’t have been possible without your efforts.
