Weekly News – Term 4 | Week 3

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

This week the prefects organised a Fun Day for the whole school, with a sausage sizzle and music provided.  The girls really enjoyed the chance to get together as a whole school before seniors commence study leave.

A reminder of St Hilda’s Day on Sunday.  Students need to be in formal uniform at St Paul’s Cathedral by 9.30am for roll call, with a $2 coin for the collection of offering at 9.40am.

Good luck to juniors for their exams next week as well as seniors whose NCEA examinations will begin shortly.

Please note that Careers information is regularly updated on the ‘Events Calendar’ section of the Parent Portal.

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Thank you to all parents who attended the John Parsons ‘Cyber Safety’ Workshop on Monday evening.  We hope that you found this informative and useful.

On Wednesday in Assembly we acknowledged girls who received the Cultural Excellence Award.  The full list of all Cultural recipients is now published on the ‘Award Ceremonies’ page.

The Mana Pounamu Young Achiever Awards are being held this evening.  This year’s recipients are Emma Alcock and Irie Simpson.

Today we farewell Trish Conrad.  We are sad to see her go and wish her all the best for her future.  Trish would like to thank all the students, parents and staff for all their kind words and gifts over the last week.  She has loved her time at St Hilda’s and has many, many wonderful memories.

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Welcome back to Term 4.  There is certainly a lot to fit in to these last weeks of school.

The Cultural Blues Assembly was held on Wednesday and we were treated to some wonderful performances by the Kapa Haka group, Sings Hilda and Maddy Guthrie as well as a video of Mhairi Rowbottom’s scholarship Dance piece.  The full list of recipients will be published on the Award Ceremonies page next week.

Mrs Trish Conrad has resigned as Sports Coordinator.  After eight years of service to the school community, she has decided it is time for a change and we know whatever her next project is, she will tackle it with the commitment, energy and passion that she has given to her role here.  Mrs Conrad will be farewelled by students at next week’s Assembly and we wish her all the best for the future.

Yesterday students participated in the annual NZBlood Service donation.  Around 42 students travelled down to the NZBlood rooms on the one way in shuttles of 6 at a time and took part in the donation process.

It is great to see such a strong community minded attitude by the girls involved. Hopefully many will become life long donors and add real value to other peoples lives.
Mr Rosenberg would like to thank all girls involved. Their behaviour and respect for the public who were also at the rooms was exemplary. Many commented on how nice they were which is always pleasing to hear.
