**Website Update Sunday 8 November**

School is back!
Normal school for Year 9 and 10 students starts again on Monday morning.
 
The NCEA exams will start in the Gym.
 
The school buses will run as normal.
 
Although the car park and the Whare Ako are asbestos free and safe we would prefer students to enter the school via the gates at each end of the bus bay.   
Year 11, 12 and 13 students are welcome to come in and work with their teachers.  They will have to work around staff commitments to teaching junior classes.   
 
NCEA
The examinations are being held in the upper Gym.
 
Students should have their admission slips by now..  If your child does not have it yet they will need to get it before the first exam.  They are held in the school office – now in the careers room..
 
Parents, please make sure that your child has an your exam timetable with all their exams clearly marked on it.  Remember that if your child misses an exam through illness or for some other reason you should contact Mr Roberts immediately.  In the case of illness a medical certificate is required.

Year 10 NCEA Information Evening
The NCEA information evening for parents of students in Year 10 this year will be held in the school Library on Tuesday, 10 November from 6.30 – 7.30 pm.
 
The School Site
The roof seal is complete and the areas of concern are fenced off and isolated.  The experts have told us that the school site is able to be safely used by students again.   
The hall roof will be replaced over the summer break.  The interior of the block will be decontaminated and cleaned before being refurbished in time for the start of 2016.
 
All the other school buildings have been tested inside and out and are free of asbestos and are safe to be used.
 
Thank you all for your patience and understanding..  Your support has been very much appreciated.
Please keep an eye on the website we will post further updates on it during these last few weeks.
