Reminder of upcoming events

Kia ora koutou,


We hope that you and your whānau have had a smooth start to Term 3.   We are pleased with the progress that is being made on the demolition of our old buildings, with the site almost cleared and ready for the landscaping to begin. Term 3 is a busy term, especially for our senior students as they start to prepare for their external exams. This email is to remind students and whānau about the following:


3 Way Conversations:

Thank you to all those families who have joined us either at school or online. We enjoy the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with you. To help us ensure these conversations are effective and useful for whānau to support students learning from home we are conducting a short survey. Your feedback will help us to make continued improvements to our processes: 3WC Survey  


NCEA Information Evening for Year 10 Families:

We are holding an online NCEA information session for Y10 students and whānau on Tuesday 16 August at 6.30pm. The meeting can be joined at the following link via google meet


Accord Teacher Only Day:

Wednesday 24 August is the second Accord Teacher Only Day for secondary school staff professional development. There will be no classes running on this day.


Hoodies for Hope mufti day:

A reminder that on Friday 26 August we are having our Hoodies for Hope mufti day to raise money for the registered charity ‘I Am Hope’ that supports mental health for young people. We ask that students who wish to participate, wear mufti that includes a hoodie (hooded sweatshirt). We will be collecting gold coin donations, with all funds raised donated to ‘I am Hope’.


Options Selection:

Students in Years 9-12 are currently selecting their options for 2023. Students can see what is on offer for 2023 through the Academic Programme and department videos on the school portal. Students need to complete their option choices and hand these to their kaitiaki by Wednesday 24 August.


Senior Exam Week:

During Week 8 (12 – 16 September) we will be holding our Derived Grade Exams. All senior students will either have an exam or a workshop for each of their courses during this week. All senior students will be on study leave during senior exam week, further details about this will be sent to whānau of senior students next week. In the event of a student being unable to attend their end of year external exams for an NZQA approved reason, the derived grade result may act as a ‘predicted grade’. It is vital that students attend all their exams or workshops during this week.
