Your daughters progress report is followed with a meeting with teachers. You will have received information about how to make appointments electronically. I advise you to make appointments early and ensure you receive confirmation of the times available. If you encounter problems or have no access to the internet then telephone our school office and ask for assistance to make the appointments.
You will have received the first of our school reports for the year and no doubt noticed a change. We intend to send you one of these twice per term. The report consists of two parts – one a record of work ethic, and the other of assessments achieved and intended for the year. The report provides some information to guide interpretation, but more importantly provides you with information to prompt discussion with your daughter to assist her progress.
The NCEA results were extremely pleasing at each of the three levels:
NCEA Level 1 88.7%
NCEA Level 2 91.3%
NCEA Level 3 84.3%
To achieve Level One, Two or Three NCEA endorsed with excellence or merit, students had to achieve at least 50 credits at excellence or merit. Our students performed extremely creditably with the following percentages of endorsements:
Level One 22% excellence, 43% merit
Level Two 18% excellence, 36% merit
Level Three 14% excellence, 32% merit
Our students gathered nineteen scholarships in total, five of which were outstanding scholarships.
Apurva Kasture gained four scholarships – English, Chemistry, Statistics and outstanding scholarship in Biology.
It’s now time to settle back into the work routine and I trust that your daughter has been inspired by her achievements from last year and has returned to work more determined than ever. Regardless of the messages your daughter conveys, education is important for her and we expect that our young women will continue at school until they have completed their Year 13, and they have acquired the qualifications and maturity they need to enter the post-school destination of their choice.
