Education Manager, Jeff van Zyl is feeling positive about the autumn term as the school prepares to welcome back all pupils, as well as upwards of forty new students across the full age range (3-18 years).
Jeff said "I am so proud of our students who have demonstrated real resilience during this unprecedented time in history; they have generally shown a real commitment to our distance learning programme and engaged well".
He went on "For our Upper School students, their hard work has allowed them to continue accruing points towards their NZCSE qualifications, throughout the lockdown period. This has provided reassurance at a time when the mainstream qualification system has left so many young people feeling anxious about their future. We are delighted to see many of our Upper School graduates heading off to the universities of their choice, varied employment and also for gap years, after receiving their Level 3 qualification”.
