Welcome back to the first term of what promises to be an exciting year. The first week back has been an orderly affair and for most students it has been classes as normal.

Senior students have been engaged in sorting their learning pathways to ensure that their timetables are meeting their future needs and aspirations. The large cohort of middle school students have been getting to know each other, their new teachers and their new environment. Taipuna students are working with their teachers to determine their learning pathways for this term and Primary School students are getting used to a more open and collaborative learning environment.

The school is strongly pursuing its vision of student centred learning - a journey that we embarked on last year.
