ONSLOW COLLEGE BULLETIN TERM FOUR, WEEK EIGHT
Thank you to everyone for another successful year here at Onslow College. I hope you all get to celebrate having time together with friends and family over the summer break and I look forward to seeing you in 2018. Peter Leggat
Thanks to all students for the way they conducted themselves during NZQA exams which have now finished. Our Exam Centre Manager was pleased with how senior students followed instructions in exam rooms. Junior students were respectful of exams and areas of the school that were off limits. Thanks everyone.
