‘Keep it real online’ campaign

The Department of Internal Affairs with Netsafe and the Office of Film and Literature Classification has launched a ‘Keep it real online’ campaign. The campaign will support parents and caregivers to reduce the risks of online harm such as cyber-bullying, inappropriate content, pornography and grooming. 

 Parents and caregivers can find information including tips on how to have conversations with their kids at www.keepitrealonline.govt.nz.


What’s happening?

The prefabs are here!

In a much anticipated event, four prefab classrooms were lowered in to place on the school field last weekend. These four classrooms will provide more space on campus and will be important as the school moves through the master planning process. There is still some work to do onsite and we anticipate that they will be in use from the first day of Term 3.


Outdoor Education

This week Year 11 students have been out on the water to Makaro (Ward Island). Students participated in a beach clean up and spent time looking at the habitats of Little Blue Penguins. The fact that students were able to observe seals and penguins on the rocks and in the water was a real bonus.

 


Art

    

This week we share stunning landscapes painted by Ms Peters’ Year 10 Art class.

    

Year 13 took advantage of the winter sun and fine colours to work outdoors.


Āwhina

Āwhina is our Thursday homework club which takes place in the Library every week. This popular, supportive environment is one where students can come for support with assignments and homework, thanks to the dedicated teachers who regularly give up their time after school each week.


MyKindo

As recently reported, the cafeteria has adopted the mykindo app to facilitate easy pre-order and contactless payment for food.

To support those using the mykindo app, the attached guide provides information on the different methods you can use to top up your account.

Virtual Careers Expo — 18-19 June

Even in unusual times like these, our students still have important decisions to make about their futures.

Next week, a number of NZ’s top providers come together to give you a Careers’ Expo experience, virtually! Attendees will have full access to the Virtual Expo Hall, where you can interact with exhibitors, ask questions, and access useful resources that will help you choose the right path.

Students only need to register once to be able to access the expo across the 2 days (and with you during the evening on Thursday night). They can access the expo at any time. There will be representatives from each institution during expo hours to chat to attendees. Outside of these hours they can still log in an access information.
