CENTENARY


5 - 9 APRIL 2017

2015 Year 12 Scholars with Principal Mrs Lorraine Pound after receiving their badges
and certifcates at a special assembly held on Tuesday 16 February We are well underway with planning for
the EGGS Centenary next year. If you
Dear Parents and students would like to be involved as a sponsor
in some way, please contact Tric Milner
This term we will trial a shorter, fortnightly newsletter. It will have highlights of recent events tmilner@eggs.school.nz
and also an emphasis on what is coming up.

News can also be seen on the School website - eg: Head Prefect Michelle Schneidemans frst
speech at the Prefect badge presentation assembly 2016 Prefects


The year has started very positively and it was wonderful to meet families of new students
at the Welcome Barbecue on Wednesday. I would like to thank the PTA, peer supporters, co-
curricular leaders, students and tutors for all the work they put into this annual event.
The Athletics Parade this morning was outstanding - the inventiveness and sense of fun of
the parade is something we treasure. Look out for images on the School website.

Term 1 Conferences - Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 March
Please make a note now of the dates for the Term 1 Conferences. For new families, these
student-tutor-parent/caregiver conferences are student-led and focus on how a student is
settling in to the demands of their new year level and it is an opportunity to plan ahead
for the rest of the year. We know that student agency and a positive working relationship
with families have an important impact on student progress and achievement and these
conferences are a valuable part of that.
