Senior Whanau Tutor Afternoon/Evening

 

DearParents/Caregivers

Kia ora koutou, Talofa Lava

Due to the PPTA (Post Primary Teachers Association) organising a Paid Union Meeting on 10 April, we have been obliged to move our Senior Whanau Tutor afternoon, which I have already written to you about.

We have attempted to gain an exemption from this meeting so that this does not inconvenience you, but unfortunately the Regional PPTA Executive has not granted our teachers this exemption.    We are therefore obliged to change the date of this Senior Whanau Tutor afternoon.evening to Tuesday, 15 April 2014 between 2.00pm and 6.00pm

Thank you for your understanding

TERM 1 WEEK 11

On 7 April, the School was visisted by Wiiiie Apiata VC, an ex-member of the New Zealand Defence Force and S.A.S and winner of the Victoria Cross for bravery in Afghanisan.    He spoke with the Services Academy about his life and what he is doing currently, working with Youth and touring NZ with his medals.    Following this he had a 45 minute session with our student leaders.  While his presentation was low key, he conveyed some very important messages about their responsibility to role model exemplary behaviour, values and standards to junior students.    It was a tremendous priviledge for both our Services and Senior students   to spend time with this humble, yet inspirational individual.

WELCOME TO ARANUI HIGH SCHOOL


Aranui High is very proud of its students and their achievements. Our mission is to be the best possible community secondary school and to provide a broad pathway for all of our students.  We have a reputation for innovation and flexibility in supporting student outcomes. The recently released Christchurch Education Renewal Plan significantly impacts on our school and its future. The Board of Trustees has been working with three other schools in our area, as part of the Aranui cluster. The Board of Trustees supported the Minister's proposal for the establishment of a brand new single -site community campus in 2017. We will continue to work co-operatively with the other schools in the cluster, to ensure that this concept is developed into an exciting plan with further details, so that the youth of the eastern area of the city have an educational hub that all sectors of our society  can be truly proud of. The vision of our Board of Trustees  also includes important roles for pre-school, tertiary, and Adult and Community Education.  

As part of the planning for the new Community Campus, the Ministry of Education formed a Community Leadership group which submited a proposed plan to the Minister at the end February.  Our BOT chairperson Haneta Pierce was also the chairperson of that Group.

The Minister has now progressed the plan with a process to appoint the Establishment Board for the new Community Campus, with nominations recently closing.  We look forward to the annoucement of the identifies of the individuals who have been chosed to lead the new campus through the early stages of its development.

In Term 1 2013, the School had a visit from the Education Review Office. The report is available on this site.  The Board of Trustees is extremely pleased with the very positive outcome of the report and its favourablecomments about student learning and achievements.
