Kia ora koutou katoa


It has been a long term with some challenging conditions but we have made it through! Students quickly settled back into the routines of school after lockdown and it is pleasing to see they continue to take advantage of the many opportunities on offer here at the college.  Students have embraced learning in the classroom, have been out on field trips and our netball team is back in action! It was great to see the girls come away with a win last weekend. With the support of their coach Whaea LeeAnn Samuels and support of staff, the girls worked hard and deserved their well-fought win.


Congratulations to all our students who continue to receive a range of certificates and awards for positive contributions to their learning and for reinforcing our positives values at Whangaroa College. Although academia is a primary focus here at the college, we also place great value on developing social skills that empower students to contribute to society and the broader world in a positive way. 


You will see through the articles in this newsletter that students have been involved in a wide range of learning experiences as they continue to extend their knowledge and understanding of important skills that will benefit them in the future.


Please join with me in thanking our staff and students for the way they have supported each other after returning to school from the Covid-19 lockdown. Staff and students deserve a well-earned rest and they are looking forward to spending quality time with family and friends over the holidays. 


Remember to continue with good hygiene practices such and regular hand washing and if you do feel sick, then please limit your contact with others to ensure they do not fall ill as well. Be good to each other, be kind and I look forward to catching up with you all in the very near future.
