It is my pleasure to welcome new and returning students and parents to the 2019 academic year. We started the year with our first ever Year 7 camp, taking six classes of Year 7 students to the Whangaparaoa Peninsula for two days of sunny fun-filled activities. Last week over 130 students participated in Swimming Sports. Well done to all participants, with special congratulations to the students that contributed to the 13 school records that were broken on the day. Tuesday night was our first parent information evening of the year. Over a hundred parents came together to find out what information can be found on myACG and Blackboard to monitor and guide their children’s progress. It was pleasing that so many parents signed up on the night to be part of the Friends of Parnell community and we will be looking for ways that the Friends of Parnell can be ore involved with the school. Parents/guardians are encouraged to attend our future events and we continue to welcome interest from parents that ould like to join the Friends of Parnell group.
