Principal Message

Kia ora koutou, Malo e leilei, warm greetings to you all,

The start of the school year is here and our wonderful new Middle School building, Aonga Ake, has been blessed by Ngāi Tahu and is now in use. We will be running tours for whānau and our senior students.

‘A’ Block demolition is nearly complete and then the new landscaping will begin. Parts of the school remain a construction site for Term 1, it is fenced off.

Important information for 2021:

Ka Ora Ka Ako – Free and Healthy School Lunch will be provided to all students beginning with Years 7, 8 & 9 on Monday 1 February.

Students may like to bring a snack. At this stage the school canteen will not be operating

Uniform from 2021

The uniform code remains except for one change; “one small, discreet stud is allowed in the nose, however it needs to be removed when safety is of a concern e.g. sporting activities”.

Cell Phone Policy from 2021

Mobile phones must be in bags and turned off during the school day. The Senior Leadership Team may give exceptions to this rule.


These will be issued to all students in period one on Wednesday 3 February
