Outstanding ICAS Success!
Congratulations to Indigo Tomlinson (Rm 20) who has achieved an exceptional result in ICAS Writing. We recently received confirmation that Indigo has been awarded the highest score in New Zealand and the Pacific and that she would be eligible for a University of New South Wales Medal. She has been invited to attend a ceremony that will be held at The University of Auckland in December. We are very proud of her and her achievement!
The school is trialling some significant changes to the timetable for the remainder of this year. The changes have come about through suggestions from the student, staff and whanau reviews that were completed in Terms 2 and 3. (Please see our Newsletter 24/10)
