SCC Newsletter - 27th September 2019
Dear Parents, Caregivers & Whānau
Thank you to all the families who have produced their daughter’s immunisation record from either their Plunket book or the GP. This could be proof for your daughter to be able to attend college next term, if we end up with a measles case here. As the newsletter sent on Monday explained, measles has been diagnosed at a local secondary school. We will endeavour to keep everyone safe and that includes students, staff and our families.
Mercy Mass was held on Wednesday at St Patrick’s Church. Mass is always a wonderful time to share and be together. One of our students, Jingki Eduarte received confirmation from Father Ephrem, which made the Mass even more special. We thank Mrs DeVos, who once again made this not just a joyous occasion, but one of pure spiritualness.
Mad Hatter Tea Party!
This was also held on Wednesday at Break 1 in the Food Room. It was hosted by the Year 10 Food class, who made some amazing food and shared their new knowledge of cooking and baking. There were so many yummy treats, it was hard to pick anything. We thank Ms Graham and the Year 10 Foods students.
We had 4 amazing students running for the position of the BoT Representative for 2019/2020. We would like to congratulate Brereton McKee. Well done to all the candidates for a very close race.
