2022 starting arrangements for new families

Kia ora new students and families,

We look forward to your arrival in 2022.

The best ways to hear from us are:

SchoolApps, where we publish any urgent or official messages.
Our website, where we publish information such as the newsletter.
Email, where official information will be sent, as well as any communications from individual staff.
Information is also often available on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Key dates to be aware of for students starting in Term 1:

During this meeting, you will select your subjects and set up your timetable. This will give you an idea of what stationery you will need as well as how your time will be organised.
