NEED TO KNOW AND ACTION

NZQA FEE REMINDER FOR NCEA 2018
The NZQA Qualifications Fees for senior students NCEA 2018 is due to be paid to the School by tomorrow (Wednesday) 4th July 2018. Payment can be made via the parent portal, internet banking or at the School Office.

REPORTING TO FAMILIES AND WHĀNAU - THE LEARNING PROGRAM
The Learning Program aims to improve the usefulness of feedback to students, their families and whānau. We believe the Learning Program offers many advantages, including giving formative and summative feedback. Teachers will add ongoing commentary on student engagement and achievement during the year, it is on-line and cumulative. It is accessed through the Parent Portal, and instructions are on our website. Initial commentaries and grades for Junior students (Years 9 and 10) will be available in the Portal by Friday 6 July. Commentaries and grades for Senior students (Years 11-13) have been entered. The next Senior Parent/Teacher Conferences will take place on Wednesday 1 August, 4.30 - 7.30pm. The next Junior Parent/Teacher Conferences will take place on Wednesday 22 August, 4.30-7.30pm. Bookings for both evenings will open on 27 July.

OUT-OF-ZONE ENROLMENTS YEAR 9 2019
We have a steady stream of enrolments for Year 9 2019 coming in. If you have a child that will be starting Onslow College in 2019 please have your enrolment form into us as soon as possible. This will help us to gauge how many out-of-zone enrolments we can accept. If you know of anyone wishing to put in an out-of-zone enrolment for Year 9 2019, please remind them the cut-off date is 30 July.

HEADS UP

BUSES - CHANGES START 15 JULY
A reminder that from the start of next term, changes to the school bus services take effect. All the information relating to Onslow College school bus services has been put on our website.

LIBRARY HELPERS REQUEST
We are looking for more people to join the roster of parents who cover the Librarians over their morning tea break. We need people who can be in the library for about half an hour at morning tea time to issue books, either for general backup or for regular duty on Tuesday. The duty is not onerous and provides an enjoyable window into school life. If you can help please contact Karen Lum klum88@outlook.com, 0210 709856 or 04 4792151.

ONYAM - ONSLOW COLLEGE/YAMAMURA EXCHANGE - HOMESTAYS NEEDED
