Term Three started with the Yr. 7 and 8 Student Led Conferences. Thanks to the many parents who attended. During these conferences information on the academic progress of students was handed out. With National Standards no longer a requirement, we are now measuring students against the curriculum levels.
Students within the Year 7 and 8 Department have also been extremely busy over the first few weeks of this term. We have had a number of students taking part in extra exams, including the ICAS Maths and Australian Maths competition.
We have had the pleasure of hosting two student groups from China visiting our classrooms. Each Year 7 and 8 class had 2 or 3 students over three weeks. This has been a great opportunity for our students to learn about another culture and to help our visitors to learn about the Kiwi lifestyle.
Other highlights from the beginning of this term are listed below.
