Just a quick update from here at camp:
Our students have been really fantastic, their behaviour has been absolutely outstanding!! We’ve received many positive comments about their behaviour and general conduct which is very uplifting.
We have been really blessed with our accommodation as some of you may have seen on our Facebook page. See the link below if you’re wanting to keep up with the happenings here at camp. https://www.facebook.com/KCSPEDEPT/
We have been staying at the Leadership Centre which is a two-story complex with about 10 twin bedrooms, big kitchen, massive lounge and dining, large conference room (now our movie theatre), 4 showers and 4 toilets. Definitely Gods’ favour upon us!!!
The weather forecast has changed dramatically today which has changed the plans for the next few days however, the students are still happy and enjoying themselves. We’re expecting a big snowfall over the next day which everyone is excited about.

TERM 3 LEARNING FOCUS AND COMMITMENT: 

This term, commitment to serious learning needs to be our focus and minimising of time distractions, eg social media and computer games are strongly advised.  Also, there is plenty of evidence that parental support with homework goes a long way toward student’s learning progress, motivation, success and meeting of deadlines. We will greatly appreciate your commitment and support from home during this term. Thank you!

YEAR 11 MATHS CLASS: AS91027 APPLY ALGEBRAIC PROCEDURES IN SOLVING PROBLEMS: 

A letter was sent home with students at the beginning of this week informing you of Term 3’s maths working plan and student goal setting towards preparing students to sit their first Level 1 external maths exam. Please make sure you have read the letter. Please discuss with your son or daughter their goals and action steps.

SCHOOL CARPARK:

Kia ora whanau ma. I would like to ask for your help to make our carpark a safer place for our students at the beginning and end of the day by making your drop-offs and pick-ups at the curb / footpath on the school side of the road. We are concerned because the carpark has become very busy at these times of the day and have had some close-calls. We do ask our children not to  walk through the carpark. Thank you for your help.  Nga mihi mahana.  David Rogers
