On behalf of the Board of Trustees, welcome back (or just welcome if it is your first time) to Wairarapa College for 2014.
As usual, the summer weather has arrived just as school starts!
The beginning of the year is a busy time and students settle into a study pattern as well as a full programme of summer sport so time management is very important to ensure that they don’t get behind early and never catch up.
I attended the Prefect’s Camp dinner in the past few days and it gave a chance to reflect on the opportunities for leadership in the college. The Prefect’s are an obvious vehicle for senior students but there are many other ways that students at all levels can show leadership in both the curricular activity as well as in the many sports and cultural activities. I would urge all of us as parents and caregivers to encourage our children to take these opportunities when they arise as it is a great platform for the future.
The rest of 2014 is looking quite busy for the Board as we move through the site master plan concepts (which will be out soon) and into the detail of planning the staging of the building projects to maximise the benefits with the least amount of disruption.
At the end of last year we have ERO conduct their regular review of the College and we are pleased with their assessment of the school and its performance in educating our students. The full report can be found here
