The Middle School covers Years 9–11. Head of Middle School is Mikae Tuu'u.
Welcome back to a busy Term 3. I have really enjoyed catching up with the students around the campus and heard many wonderful stories about their holidays during the July break. Term 3 is one of my favourite terms, as we head into springtime and really knuckle down into our learning. It is also a term where we start looking into next year and make decisions about what it will look like. I would encourage all parents and students to carefully consider their options for next year. Overall, my advice would be to keep the pathways open, especially for those heading into Year 10.
Students have all received their 2020 Curriculum Book. It is essential that students think carefully about their options and keep the net open in terms of future pathways. All three Deans and I are available to discuss future options for your child. A reminder please that online selection forms open tomorrow afternoon and must be submitted by Monday 2 September.
This time of year brings on many events outside the classroom. The Year 9–10 production cast and crew are working hard towards their show, Peter Pan, in Term 4. Our musicians continue to shine in various competitions, and our winter sports teams are starting to come to the ‘business end’ of their season, with already having played in finals. With Winter Tournament Week approaching, it is important that students heading away are prepared in all areas so that they can focus on their sport during this time.
