Taita College enrolment forms can be picked up from the school office and returned. They are doing more interviews at the beginning of next term, so please get your forms in if you haven’t already.

 

DISCO – our students had a fun night at the Disco on Wednesday evening.  They especially enjoyed the DJ’s music, the ‘smoke’ machine and lights, and the food especially the pizza provided.  It is very pleasing to them see having a good time whilst still behaving like young adults.  Thank you to staff who organised the disco and also to those who stayed on to supervise the event.
