2017 Kerikeri High School Prizegiving Highlights

Tuesday’s Senior Prizegiving was a celebration of our students’ success, an acknowledgement of all who have made it happen and a chance to say a huge thank you.

Mrs Forgie commented “We walk in the footsteps of many students, many families and whanau and members of our wider school community and we are proud to be able to say that Kerikeri High School is going from strength to strength.” Student leadership is powerful with our role models at Peer Support, Tuakana, Librarian, Kiwi Buddy, Prefect, Keri Reading, Student Council and a strong volunteer ethos from Work Day to Daffodil Day to the Great Art Exhibition she said.

Our Teachers are leaders – in New Zealand with raising achievement for Maori students and in their curriculum areas, as well as in our community.” Mrs Forgie concluded her speech with this challenge from the great Sir James Henare.

Kua tawhiti ke te haerenga mai, kia kore e haere tonu

You have come too far, not to go further

He tino nui rawa ou mahi, kia kore e mahi nui tonu

You have done too much, not to do more.

Thank you Kerikeri High School.

Kai Kaha. Kai Manawanui
