The last week of school was also a time to celebrate and learn about  Matariki and the importance of this event to the people of Aotearoa. We celebrated with presentations and performances by a large group of students from around the school.

Our final assembly of the term is always a special one as each class celebrates the Student of the Term – someone who is diligent, kind and who goes the extra mile. Other awards were given by the Board of Trustees and staff for outstanding performance and contribution to school life.
