2 Timothy 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline

Dear Parents / Caregivers

Included in this newsletter is the schedule of tutorials that are to be run during the school holidays for Year 11, 12 & 13 students.  This is one of the reason for our successes. The commitment of our staff to help our students achieve is to be admired. The holiday tutorial programme is a great opportunity for students to get extra assistance to prepare for NCEA exams.  Please click on the button below to take you to the schedule.

Work Day
Forms for the Work Day on Tuesday 16 September, should be returned to form teachers as soon as possible.  Funds raised will go towards freshening up the gym. Full details of requirements of the day are noted below and have been sent home with your son.  School will be closed on this day - 16 September.

Father & Son Brunch
The 2014 Father & Son Brunch is being organised by the prefects.  It will take place at the College on the morning of Saturday 6 September from 10.00am to 12.30pm.  This is a good opportunity for fathers, uncles, grandparents to socialise with their sons in a relaxed setting.  For the students it is a time to experience positive role modelling in an all-male environment. We are fortunate to have Kevin Biggar speaking on goal setting and achieving beyond your own limitations.  Kevin is a co-presenter of the television programme "First Crossings". This is open to all students, their fathers, uncles etc.

Enrolments / Interviews for 2015
We are continuing to process enrolment applications for 2015.  If you are intending to enrol your son for next year or you are aware of someone else in this position, please contact my P.A. Deirdre Auger and she will advise you of the next steps in the enrolment process.

God Bless you and your families.
