Māori and Pasifika Whanau Hui

We would like to invite all of our Pacific and Māori whanau to a Hui to talk about how we can support you as a School.  The evening will start with Kai.  You are most welcome to bring your tamariki with you.  

Waiho i te toipoto, kaua i te toiroa

Let us keep close together, not wide apart 

2023 Intentions

A reminder for any families who know their children are not returning in 2023 (and have not already let us know) – can you please do so ASAP.

We know all the Year 10 students will be leaving but it is very important that we know of anyone else who is not intending to return in 2023.
