Life Education

On Friday 15th March all Year 7 and 8 students will be working with Life Education. This will take place on the Discovery Campus as this is where the Life Education bus is parked.

This means students will need to make their own way to and from this campus. The address is 90 McMahon Drive, Aidanfield, Christchurch. Students need to arrive there around 8.45pm and will be able to leave between 2.30 and 3.00pm.

Life Education is part of our focus on Health and Well being and we will be doing a program called “What is an Upstander”. Parents are welcome to check out the  Life Education Website for more information.
