Year 9 Induction & Year 9 Parents Evening Reminder

The 2020 Year 9 student group has just completed their 3 day Induction Programme as they move into their secondary school experience at Otumoetai College.

Day 1 was an opportunity to meet their form teacher, class members and STARS Peer Mentors.

Days 2 and 3 were taken up with 6 rotations that included a visit and talk at the Otumoetai Pa site, Team Building, discussion around identity, learning our school haka and waiata and computer sign up and etiquette.

Starting from next week, Year 9 form classes can look forward to an overnight camp at the college Oteora campsite at the base of the Kaimais.

Finally, a reminder that parents and students are invited to attend the Year 9 Parents Meeting next Monday evening 17 February at 7pm in the Performing Arts Centre.
