Notices for week commencing 10th December 2018:

At the end of the week we have our annual school disco. Let's hope for fine weather.

This week we held our Graduation Ceremony for our Year Six students. This is always a bitter sweet moment because whilst we are celebrating their six years at Kauri Park School we are sad to farewell them. The evening opened with a movie from camp and finished with a slideshow of images from their early days at Kauri Park. It was very enjoyable to watch our students seeing themselves as much younger students.

One student from each class gave a short speech on behalf of their peers and without exception delivered some moving words. Well done Ethan, Lewis, Shanti & Lily. We are extremely proud of all of our graduates and look forward to following their future successes.

We also presented the senior awards at this ceremony. Congratulations to the following recipients:

Talaic Art Award: Esme Reynolds

Gasson Cup: Cara Baard

Ashcroft Cup: Lily Foster

Cochrane Cup for Boys’ Sport: Jett Jamieson

Cochrane Cup for girls’ Sport: Maddi Galvin
