Congratulations to Lucy Scrivener who was awarded 1st= at the Manawatu Secondary Schools Woodwork Competition. Her work was highly praised by the presenter Leilani Krans-Tunnage from the TVNZ design show 'Design Junkies' and owner of Design Pilot in Wellington. Lucy’s success in this competition is a testament to her hard work in Wood Materials this year.

Year 10 Camp Week

Year 10 Camps run from Monday 26 November - Friday 30 November. A gentle reminder that some may still have a balance owing for camps. If this is you, or if you are unsure, please contact the office. Students have been issued with camp letters outlining full trip details and permission forms - please return these as soon as possible. A reminder, camps are a privilege, not a right, and that the school reserves the right to remove a student from their selected camp. If you have any questions regarding Year 10 Camps, please contact Mrs Newton by phoning 06 356 4817 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
