Summer uniform – we have been fortunate with the weather, and the warm temperatures have made for very pleasant weekends. For student comfort, we are allowing students to continue to wear summer uniform for an additional two weeks. The changeover date this term will now be Monday 30 May. From this date on girls will be expected to be in full winter uniform. Please note that the options until 30 May are full summer, or full winter uniform and not a combination of both.
All is excitement in Year 7 this week as we begin the final countdown to Motutapu camp. This experience is a game changer for many of our girls, as they learn to take risks and push personal boundaries in a safe and supportive environment. It is the stuff life long friendships and memories are made of.
Last week saw the Auckland heat of the Lit Quiz 2016. Our teams did a great job and held their own in a very tough competition. The girls were very enthusiastic.
Winter sports kicked off this week with some exciting hockey and netball games. The unseasonably warmer weather definitely makes for a more enjoyable spectator experience and it is great to see so many of you on the sidelines supporting the girls and their coaches. The ski racing team have also had their first training at Snow Planet on Sunday and the girls were excited to be getting underway for the season.
The Year 7 and 8 team are planning Careers Day (June 14) and we are looking for energetic and enthusiastic parents / friends to come in and talk to our girls. Please do let us know if you could come and share your career experiences or if you think of anybody we can contact.
