Welcome to Term 2!

Kia ora everyone and I hope that you had an excellent holiday break with your friends and whanau! We are off to a great start for Term 2. We have started off revisiting our expectations and what it means to be 'ready for learning'. A big part of this means that we have all of our gear each day.

Things we need to remember to bring are:
- chromebook (charged!)
- charger
- PE gear (Tues, Wed, Fri)
- proper school uniform
- pencil case + supplies
- books to class

7/8 Bh have also been talking about the word integrity and what it means to do the right thing even when teachers aren't watching. I have challenged our class to show integrity both at school and at home. Sometimes the hard thing and the right thing are the same.

We had a very successful Cross Country race on 3 May and are proud of TJ (Year 8 Boys), Jesse (Year 7 Boys) and Tasharn (Year 7 Girls) who all placed within our school competition. Well done to these students and everyone who tried their very best last week!

Upcoming events:
- Winter Sport competition starts Week 3
- Year 7/8 Rugby Competition 7 May
- New Passions starting on Wednesday 8 May

I look forward to a very busy term!
