Good morning, everyone! What a beautiful start to the week with the sun shining bright
Yesterday, our teachers were back in the classroom as part of the Ministry of Education's initiative to support the implementation of Te Mātaiaho - Curriculum Refresh Training.
And today, it's all about our amazing students! Our Year 8s are off on an exciting camp adventure, creating memories and experiencing new adventures together. Meanwhile, our Year 7s are getting stuck into their EOTC (Education Outside the Classroom) week, exploring, discovering, and learning beyond the classroom walls!
