The Ministry of Education have approached me today to try and connect with any families still without devices or WiFi. I know there will still be some in that situation. If this message is read by anyone of our school community who needs a device or WiFi at home, please email Cathy Lawry (lwc@pcol.school.nz) by 3pm tomorrow 27th March. We are acutely aware this is going out on social media and needing connectivity to be read. We hope therefore it is seen on a phone or if someone knows someone else in this situation, you can respond on their behalf.

Hope Day 1 is going well

A final signing out as I leave the college for the next few weeks. In this time ahead, look after yourselves, look after others and above all else be kind.

Just want to let our community know our Learning from Home days this Thursday and Friday this week are going to be key learning opportunities for staff and students. I am excited about what is going to take place. We will seek feedback from students and parents to help us plan for remote learning and teaching into the future. In the meantime though, we are also getting ready for the launch of our learning platform that will be ready after the holidays. This will be a single go to place that students can then head off from to their different learning areas. I'm already amazed at what is being done on there. So my overall message this morning: Don't be worried about the learning. We have it well in hand. It's going to be different, but it's going to be great.


CSW have just sent the Volleyball placings through, well done to our JG's who have qualified for the Premier Grade in Term 4 @CLorcet
