Dear Parents and Students
A big welcome back to school for 2019. As you are already aware our Principal Kevin Cronin is taking
leave this term and once again I am stepping up as Acting Principal. I want to assure you that
during his time of absence that the school will run as usual, purely because of the great team
that is providing support. Well done to our students and staff for making such a fantastic start
to the school year. We already see our students living our ORCA values by helping others, challenging
themselves, using their manners, having a go, working hard and sharing respect.
Thanks also to all our staff for the hard work you are putting into building relationships and setting
up the learning environment for a successful year.
Thank you parents too, for helping the students set up successfully for the school year. We have really
appreciated your support to get stationery and uniform sorted. We are also very grateful for the
level of support to our school donation. Your contributions to our school donation, no matter how
big or small are valued.
On Wednesday morning we welcomed our new Whanau, Pupils, International families and Staff at our Powhiri,
this was a special occasion and we look forward to our new families becoming part of our community.
