Last Friday about 150 students, parents and teachers gathered at the Memorial Centre for our annual Leavers’ Dinner. The evening featured a few trips down memory lane with many old photos of our Year 13 students from previous years on display. The crowd were also treated to musical items and outstanding speeches from our Deputy Head Students, Brooke Dunbar and Harrison Fountain. A great night was had by all and it was a great way to celebrate everyone’s school years as they move onto their next chapter. A huge thank you to our Head girl Kate Smitstra, Head Boy Reuben Jones, Deputy Head girl Brooke Dunbar and Deputy Head boy Harrison Fountain for doing an excellent job this year.

At our final full school assembly we were delighted to present a cheque to Matamata’s Starfish Social Services. The money was raised by our four Head Students who completed a sponsored 172 km bike ride from Raglan to Waihi Beach earlier in the year. Congratulations to our Head Students for organizing and completing this ambitious ride and providing such wonderful support to Starfish.
