Mihi Whakatau at Taita College

Year 8 students from Team Ruru and Team Kahu will be welcomed onto Te Whakaruruhau, the Taita College Marae on Tuesday morning. As part of our work as with the Taita-Stokes Valley Community of Learning, Taita College has invited all Year 8 students in the area to visit and learn more about their marae. Unfortunately the students from Team Tui will be at Technology during this time so are not able to attend this visit. 


College Enrolments for 2021

If your child is moving through to college next year it is important that you return the completed enrolment forms as soon as possible. All students have received enrolment packs for Taita College and you are welcome to return these to our school office, and we can pass these on. If your child is attending Naenae College, they should have received an enrolment pack when they visited the school yesterday. These enrolment forms can also be returned to our school office, and we can pass these onto the school. Can you please indicate which college your child will be attending on the slip below, so we can support the schools with transition. All returned slips will go into a draw and a winner will be drawn at assembly next week. The prize is...lunch from Avalon Espresso with a staff member of your choice!


Year 8 students only - Please return to the school office (Winner drawn Wed Week 3)
