The end of the year is approaching fast and for both our Senior and Junior school and the emphasis needs to be on finishing 2013 in the best place they can be in to allow their future to be successful.
In the Senior school I would urge all our students to aim for as many credits as possible, not to settle for “just enough”. And for the Juniors , ensure that their performance allows them to make the choices they want for their senior subjects.
A significant event for the College since the last newsletters has been the agreement from the Ministry of Education that we have no need to maintain an enrolment scheme. This means that the zoning is gone and that we are open to enrolments from all locations no matter where people live. There were two main drivers for our quest to remove the zone: · The chance for all families to chose Wairarapa College so that their children can benefit from our excellent education · Our desire to grow the student population slightly (+10%) which will help us continue to offer the full range of options that exist currently.We have done what we can to publicise this fact but I would ask that you, our community, spread the word on this change.
The Board and Senior Management have almost completed the Strategic Planning process including the consideration of the feedback we received from our stakeholders including you and we will have a final version soon.
We do welcome feedback at any time so if you have any suggestions or concerns, then get in touch. Our email is email@example.com
