School Life: Welcome to Spring! School activities continue at a frenetic pace. I seem to daily hear about outstanding results from all age groups. I also hear and participate in stunning community activities put on by our campuses. Well done everyone.

Thank you to the parents at our Mt Albert Campus who hosted myself and our Board Chairman Mr Chris Bethwaite for a cottage meeting this week. The Golflands Campus Fathers’ Breakfast was phenomenal and is now such a wonderful tradition at our school. It’s also the season of Cross Country and with our school and interschool events happening.

Over the first seven weeks of this term we have hosted many students from overseas and I wish to thank so many parents for hosting, our International Department for organising, staff for teaching and our students for being the best buddies ever. Of particular note, I wish to congratulate MAC for holding an amazing powhiri for each of our international groups. Thank you Mrs Sellar for your leadership.

Growing: We have been holding ‘Expression of Interest’ Tours at GC and MAC all year and we’ve now held open days at all three campuses. Our LifeFM promotion has come to an end but we continue to promote enrolments for our Mt Albert Campus. We are currently conducting enrolment interviews to fill spaces we have available for 2019.

Requirements: We have a renewed emphasis on (1) wearing the right uniform (2) clearing lost property (3) fixing lateness to school and (4) clear the grounds by 3.30pm. Thank you parents in anticipation that for all of these areas we will see a continued improvement. Well done Mt Albert Campus for helping us to clear the grounds so well by 3.30pm on a daily basis.   This now has to become the norm at Golflands Campus.

With our ARISE PM operating, staff attending meetings and doing preparation, we have a health and safety situation at Golflands Campus. From Monday 10 September Golflands Campus grounds must now be cleared by 3.30pm. We value you help with this  requirement.
