The second term this year has been even more action packed than usual. In nine weeks students and staff fitted in a huge amount of activity: the variety concert (Hayley a star on drums and the long poi); our stage challenge entry in New Plymouth was vibrant, exciting, professional looking and robbed of a place; Manu Korero/Pae Rangatahi for Taranaki was held at our place and the Kapa Haka was brilliant; the sports exchange to Taita was held at Taita (Lower Hutt) over two rain soaked days; and the very successful school ball rounded off the term for the seniors.
And so to term three. I signalled to the students at our last assembly for the term that the study break leads into serious pursuit of academic achievement in terms three and four. In effect this means that for internal credits term three is the business end of the year (term four has the accent on external credits).
To all staff, students and whanau - have a great break and get refreshed for the second half of the year.
