Transition to Tertiary Whānau Evening

You are warmly invited to the Transition to Tertiary Whānau Evening on Wednesday 26 June at 6.30pm in the Library.

Mrs Crawford (Careers Advisor) will discuss applying for University, Polytech and Private Training Establishments, applying for Accommodation, Student Allowances, Student Loans and Scholarships.

This will be followed by a ‘Question and Answer’ session and then a cup of tea where we can discuss things more informally.

If your child is intending to study at a Tertiary Institution in 2020, then this would be most beneficial to both you and your child.

If you and your child are able to attend please email Mrs Eileen Crawford on ecrawford@kerikerihigh.ac.nz or text 021 134 9838 with confirmation of attendance.  We look forward to seeing you there.

Ball Supper

A major event in the calendar of our school is the annual Senior School Ball which is happening on Saturday 27 July.  It is an important and formal event. As in previous years the PTA will be preparing supper for the evening and rely on generous donations from parents and caregivers (of all year groups, not just those attending the Ball) to make an amazing supper possible.  Any home-made sweets such as coconut ice, fudge, truffles or slices would be greatly appreciated.

Baking can be dropped off to Reception on Friday 26 July or to the Library on the afternoon of Saturday 27 July.  The PTA are also grateful for any volunteers willing to help out on Saturday, either by helping with food preparation Saturday afternoon or during the Ball on Saturday night. If you are willing and would like to help, please contact Shelley Ellicott by phone 401 6453, 0274 828232 or email shelleyellicott@gmail.com.  Thank you to all our parents and caregivers for supporting this wonderful event.

Kerikeri High School LEC Needs Your Support

A group of students from Kerikeri High School Learning Enrichment Centre have created a film to tell others about themselves and all the great things that they get up to even though they have a disability. This disability doesn’t stop them from having fun and participating in a variety of activities.  We’d like to share this video with you!!!

We entered into the Focus on Ability’s international film festival and were told we have made it into the FINALS!!!

The Focus on Ability (FOA) Awards is designed to encourage filmmakers to focus on the ability of people with a disability.

We have been selected into the final round along with 26 other countries and 245 films in total across the 6 categories. We have entered into the School Entrant Documentary.

This final stage is all about sharing it with our community, whanau and friends. It is an online voting category and we would love you to support us with a vote.

This is open from today until the 3rd of July but please don’t wait till then to vote.

You are able to vote for 1 film in each category but only one, so we hope you love ours and can give us your vote!!
