Haere raa & goodbye for now Year 13 Leavers' Farewell

16 December 2022

After years of Covid-19 hindered farewells, it was a joyous occasion to celebrate our Year 13 Leavers and their families in the school Dining Hall on Thursday 1 December.

Balloon garlands, festoon lights, and themed marquees greeted the students and their parents for their final hoorah. Throughout the evening, selfies, family photos, and lots of hugs were on the agenda.

Headmaster Ben Skeen celebrated and raised a toast to the students. Head Prefects Samuel Peoples and Leah Weck replied with a thank you to the parents, followed by parent Trina White replying and applauding the school.

The 2022 Leavers’ Gift was also unveiled and is a representation of the student’s time at the school. The final artwork consists of the 0.52m bronze oak sapling sculpture positioned on top of a 1.20m wooden totara.
