Kia ora tatou, and welcome back to 2020!

It has been a very unsettled start to the year with our unexpected closure. Although we understand why parents would find this frustrating, schools must follow the advice of the district council and bus contractors when making decisions about closures. Apologies for any inconvenience caused throughout the first week.

Unfortunately, this also led to our Mihi Whakatau being postponed. We have rescheduled for Thursday, February 13th at 11.20 am. The families of new students to the school are encouraged to attend, supporting their child. Please assemble at the steps to the main office. Later the same day (5-6.30pm) we will hold our Welcome BBQ for all parents and students - this is a great opportunity to meet the staff in an informal setting.

In our first assembly of the year, we congratulated our senior students on their fantastic NCEA results from the external examinations. Ka pai ki te katoa! We took some time to reflect on our TCAS Way values of Tenacity, Care, Achievement and Service, as well as considering things in our life that we can be grateful for. Later, we welcomed our new Head Boy and Board of Trustees Representative, Robbie Jackson. He will be supported by two junior leaders from Year 10 - Nicole Sinclair and Korban Craigie as well as our House Captains. The 2020 House Captains are: Brayden Michie (Nora), Shannon Gordon (Surat) and Dannielle Mason (Manuka). We also acknowledged our Student Representative on the Owaka Going Forward Committee, Charlotte Pitts. Congratulations to all our young leaders.

We're sure everyone is looking forward to a much smoother, and more productive week 2!

Whāia te iti kahurangi ki te tūohu koe me he maunga teitei!
