We celebrated the annual College Prizegiving on November 6 this year. Our guest speaker Daniel Faitaua from TVNZ provided an interesting speech that set the tone for students and families acknowledging our successful students.
Thank you to all our hard working, committed senior management, teachers and support staff – fantastic leadership of learning, sport and culture. We are continuing to push our boundaries to establish new curriculum that will give purpose, meaning and cultural foundation for our students.
This year the AimHi awards went to Pearl Lene for Outstanding service, Vaainga Ah Mau and Priya Dalana for Excellent teaching.
Thank you to parents and supporters for assisting us push on to higher achievements. The rebuilding of SCC is happening – Stage two – two new two-storied classroom blocks including administration, gymnasium, staffroom, café and library relocating our main frontage back onto Buckland Road opening in 2018.
There are three aspects of character I hope we provide you with:
Values, Respect, Attitude to work
1. A belief based on your spiritual values.
2. Respect for your fellow human beings – an understanding of good relationships
3. Attitude to hard work and the qualification you need to go on from here to make the most of opportunities
All these combined will make you rise up.
This years’ Year 13s have set a new standard with the best ever results this school has ever achieved depending on the NCEA externals – but we again expect that next year the current year 12s will be even better!
It is important to have goals but remember:
Be clear about what you believe
Use your own culture to relate to others of different cultures
