Message From The Principal 04.06.21
Roadworks: Thank you for your co-operation during what is a disruptive time. The roadworks on Edwards Ave are scheduled to be completed in three weeks time. When completed the school traffic flow will return to normal and parents will be able to drop off and pick up students once more. Meantime, please continue to adhere to the restrictions during this time. The whole point of the roadworks is to ensure the safety of everyone at peak times.
Progress Reports: Progress reports will be out to parents shortly. Staff are working on a mid-year report which will be sent out before the end of term. Parent / teacher interviews will then be held in term 3.
Please support PTFA initiatives – Technology Raffle and Entertainment Book
Enrolments for 2022: Enrolments are now closed for next year’s intake. Preference enrolments will still be accepted, however will be on a waitlist. Once again, enrolments have been steady and we will have a full roll.
Long Term Absences: Unless an absence is unavoidable (i.e. sickness, bereavement), written approval must be sought from the Principal. eg. Planned long term absences, such as trips and short term absences due to family holidays or sports events. Please email my PA, Deirdre Bennett with your request.
Day to Day Absences: if a caregiver has not advised the school of an absence either by phone, email or through the College App, a note must be provided on the first day of their return to school.
Health and Safety Procedures for boys unwell at school: Boys who are unwell during the day must see their Dean and then come to the sickbay. If they need to go home, the office ladies will phone parents. Boys must NOT text/phone home themselves.
Samoan Language Week
This week we have celebrated Samoan Language Week with staff attempting to use Samoan greetings and phrases. We celebrated today by giving panakekes to all students. A suitable way to end the week.
Enjoy the long weekend.
