One of the great advantages of our Year 7 to 13 School is the interaction between the oldest, mature and caring students and the youngest newest students to the school. We talk about “eyes up” to the senior role models and believe this is one of the keys to the very high retention rate we have at Kerikeri High School right through to the end of Year 13.
Kerikeri High School Year 13 students were straight out at Waimate North this week taking part in a two-day Leadership Camp and beginning their planning for the year. The Camp was organised and run by Deputy Principal and Peer Support Leader Mr Mike Clent, Year 13 Dean Miss Kate Crawford, Mrs Eileen Crawford and the Year 13 Form Teachers.
The Leadership Camp is always a huge success with students training to be warm, knowledgeable Peer Support Leaders for our new Year 7 students.
Peer Support at School begins soon with our Year 13 students supporting the Year 7 students in their transition to Kerikeri High School in an enthusiastic and caring way. The organisation is also well under way for the Year 7 Camps which will be held at Urupukapuka Island again this year.
