Senior School Update

Term 4 is always a bittersweet time when we bid farewell to our Year 13s.  The Class of 2023 have been a wonderful group and will be missed.  We also bid farewell to a small number of Year 12s and wish them well.  It has been a busy term focused on preparing for, and completing, NCEA examinations.  I wish all senior students a restful holiday break.
