Community Message from our Principal
Kia ora koutou
Welcome back to Term 2. With the lifting of restrictions we are looking forward to being able
to connect again with our community face to face. Whilst being in the Orange setting allows
more school activities to take place, students are reminded that they still need to wear a
mask when travelling on school buses. Masks are not compulsory indoors at school but they
are still strongly recommended.
It has been fantastic to see the majority of students back at school. If you know of any
student or family who is still hesitant around returning, please encourage them to reach out
to us so we can work together to remove any barriers and concerns.
We celebrated our first whole school assembly last week with an acknowledgement of some
of our students’ successes and a remembrance of ANZAC Day. I would like to thank all the
students, staff and whānau who attended the dawn services during the holidays. Your
participation in these occasions is greatly appreciated by our wider community.
I would like to take the opportunity to remind you of some key events that are taking place
over the next few weeks:
Thursday 12 May - Parent and Teacher Interviews
School closes at 1.20 pm. Any students requiring supervision are to report to the College
library. Buses are running as normal.
Parent and Teacher Interviews begin at 2.00 pm. Years 7 & 8 Homeroom teacher interviews
will be held in B2 and B3. All other interviews are in the Hall and Drama room, which is just
off the Hall.
Friday 13 May - MOE Teacher Only Day
The College is closed on Friday for a teacher only day. We do have a few other teacher only
days later in the year. These days are NCEA accord days.
Monday 16 May - Pink Shirt Day
Students are encouraged to wear pink in order to promote anti bullying within the school and
Friday 20 May - Cross Country
Cross country is held at Moore Park on Friday afternoon. We are also making this day a
nonuniform day, but please ensure clothing is appropriate for running. Cross country finishes
in time for students to walk back and catch their buses.
Please continue to read our newsletters for important dates and any further information.
I would like to welcome Miss Melanie Cunliffe who joins us in Year 7 & 8 and Ms Donna Cox
who is joining us in English for the rest of the year.
As a staff we are looking forward to what will hopefully be a more “normal” term. I look
forward to seeing you at school, supporting our students in their sports and cultural activities
and in the wider community
