It’s hard to believe that senior examinations and end of year celebrations are already upon us. 
In preparation for the weeks ahead, the following information has been prepared to ensure you are familiar with the expectations and events that lead us through to the end of the school year. Please take time to read this information and diary dates relevant to your family.

Senior students sitting NCEA examinations or attending school for tutorials or meetings during exam leave are required to wear full summer uniform and ensure they observe the school dress code guidelines during this period.

Textbook and library book return for Years 11-13
All issued library/textbooks must be returned to the library before Wednesday 1 November.  If a book or text is required for examination preparation it can be returned via the book return crates outside the Chapel. If the text has not been returned by Friday 1 December the replacement cost of the outstanding item/s will be charged to your account. 

You will receive a notification about the ordering of the 2017 Yearbook, next week.
