ONSLOW COLLEGE BULLETIN TERM ONE, WEEK THREE
NEED TO KNOW AND ACTION
We have sent letters congratulating students on outstanding achievements with their 2016 NCEA results.16 of our students achieved scholarships in a wide range of subjects, with three students achieving outstanding scholarships results! Overall our students earned 21 scholarships. In addition, we had 50 students achieve an Excellence endorsement at Level 1, 41 students at Level 2 and 27 at Level 3. This is a fine achievement by our students.
EXTENDED STUDENT ABSENCE
We are beginning to get a few requests for extended leave. Information about the process is available on the website.It is a Ministry requirement that when students are going to be absent from school for a day or more, for a reason other than sickness, bereavement etc., approval must be given by the Principal. Email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting approval and advising the details of such absence as soon as possible before the requested leave.
GETTING TO SCHOOL ON TIME
To enable students to set themselves up for a good day it is important that they are at school on time. The school day starts at 8:45am (9:30am on a Tuesday).This means ideally students would be in their classes ready to start learning at 8:45am. There will be reasons that this is not always possible. Sleeping in is not an acceptable reason!
