Kia ora e te whanau
With our senior students on study leave and now only coming into the College to sit exams or attend tutorials, the school may feel quieter, but there is a lot left in the year for our students in Years 7-10. This week alone has seen our Year 7 and 8 students participate in swimming lessons at the MLT and Loving for Life evening sessions with parents. Our Year 9’s have also participated in Loving for Life sessions in their Religious Education classes this week. Our Year 10 students are out at Borland Lodge currently and I was privileged to be able to spend a little time with them last night. I was super impressed with the staff and parents help out there, which without, this amazing outdoor education opportunity would not be able to go ahead. This Saturday we have our Year 9 to 13 Southland Athletics qualifiers compete at Surrey Park in Invercargill followed by our Year 7 & 8 qualifiers the following weekend. We have four very full weeks of learning and activities to go so please support your children by ensuring they are at school every day taking advantage of all the opportunities we have to offer.
As always, we keep in our prayers our senior students taking part in the NZQA examinations. With our encouragement they will run their race with confidence and will cross their finish line with a sense of accomplishment. Let these words be a source of encouragement for all our young people -
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
