Dear Parents and Caregivers

Please be aware that there will be a Teacher Only Day on Friday 8 March for NCEA  Alignment.  Teachers who are not involved in NCEA will have the opportunity to plan and moderate the school programme.

I have included the latest NCEA results which are once again impressive.  The Level 1 success rate is the highest we have had since NCEA was introduced.  The most pleasing  aspect for me is that the students now believe that they can achieve the levels the teachers are demanding.  I thank my teachers for their dedication and determination to work with the students to help them achieve.  As we move into the second part of Term One I look forward to another successful year for NCEA.
