New Families BBQ

Recently we had our BBQ for families of new parents. Thanks to all those who came - we had a very good turnout in spite of the mixed weather. It was a great opportunity to mix and mingle and put some names to faces. Congratulations also to the winners of our PTFA new parents raffle.


Congratulations to our four students who gained Scholarship in their exams last year - Gabriela Bantas (Biology), Jessie Kanapi (Geography), Bona Tao (Geography) and Gabriella Brayne in four subjects including Outstanding Scholarship in Geography, putting her amongst the very best performing students in that subject in New Zealand.
