Start of Term 1 - 2015 is going to be a Supreme Year!

Tuesday 27th January 2015

Today was the first day back at school and we are ready to get back into learning. The day started with our lovely teachers introducing themselves and the students meeting new friends in their class for 2015.

We are excited that things for the Year 7 and 8 students are going to be done differently this year. We now have syndicate names - our syndicate name is called Kia Manawanui which means 'Be Big Hearted'. We will be learning more about the meaning of our syndicate name in the weeks ahead.

Another change for 2015 is our classroom environment. At the moment our class is situated in school hall as our new modern learning environment is yet to be completed. There are lots of builders around the school working hard to build our new classroom which we hope to be in by the end of Week 3. We look forward to knowing more about learning in a modern learning environment this term and we will be excited to share our learning experiences in this new classroom throughout the year.

Throughout the day we lots of fun team building activities where we got to know about our peers in the class and develop positive relationships.

We look forward to a new year of adventures, learning and inspirations - 2015 is going to be a supreme year.

  1. It's been a great first couple of days Aireen, full of flexibility, adaption and patience! We have the beginnings of a fantastic syndicate and I look forward to our learning journey this year :-)

    1. I agree Petra. Students have come back to school fired up for learning and have adapted well to the learning in hall. I look forward to a great year ahead with you, the students and teachers in our syndicate. I also look forward to our new modern learning environment.
