Kay’s Community Newsletter Friday 7th July


The IEM booking calendar is now live on the school website, here is link to it. There will be no classes the first two days of term, Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th July.  These days are set aside for IEM’s. All students are required to have an IEM with their home base LA.

National Standards Information to parents

All year 7 and 8’s have been handed their National Standards information over the last two days. Please make sure they hand this to you or let us know if you didn’t receive it. If they have been away then your home base LA will have the information in your IEM.

Connecting Before Electing

Kia Ora, 

I am writing on behalf of the the Christchurch Youth Council (Rūnaka Taiohi o Ōtautahi) who a group of young people ( aged 12- 24) dedicated to advocating for a strong youth voice in Christchurch. We aim to provide young people with the avenue to have their say. We aim to create a community where the youth voice is as valued as all others in the community. 

On Tuesday the 11th of July we will be hosting an event called Connecting Before Electing. This will be aimed predominantly at first time voters who would benefit from more information about why their vote matters and what each major political party stands for. There will be an opportunity for each political party to share their visions, views and overarching policies. As well as opportunities for young people to ask questions to particular parties. 

This event will be non-confrontational, and is run predominantly by other young people. There will be free food and opportunities to ask questions and mingle with others attending.

Community Trip Term 3

After talking to some students we have decided that we will have a community ski trip next term. This is just a heads up as it is a bit more expensive than the normal trip. We are really hoping that if we go as a whole community then we can encourage lots of students have a go for the first time. We will send as many LA’s from our community as we can to support students. We would also love parents to join us. This is a heads up as the cost is $50  plus transport. Students will also need to try and find or borrow some ski clothing. All other equipment is hired at Mount Hutt. 

Happy Holidays!!
