EGGS choirs performed at the Auckland Big Sing last week. Every student involved should feel
proud of their performance, recognised in awards detailed later in this edition of EGGSNEWS. 10 August @ Eden Park
Many sports teams are right in the midst of the competition round, looking forward to Guest speaker to be announced....
possible selection for Tournament Week starting 29 August. At the Big Sing, watching lacrosse
recently and talking with some students from 3 soccer teams heading of for their afternoon Tickets available soon
games last week, I was particularly aware of the unfailing and positive efort by parents and
staf who support student co-curricular activities in a number of ways. This is one important
aspect of true community. Thank-you to everyone who is involved.

Term 2 Conferences for students and parents to meet with subject teachers are a useful
opportunity to discuss progress and achievement at this half-year point and to look ahead.
Just a reminder - bookings close on Monday 27 June at 12.00pm.

At this time of the year with two weeks of the term to go, it is really important for students
to pace themselves; making deadlines manageable and seeking help when it is needed. A
sense of urgency and determination and a healthy sense of purpose to get things done is
usually a good thing seeing tasks as a mountain overwhelming us isn t. Simple things such
as getting enough sleep, eating well; getting on with tasks and ticking them of rather than
worrying and talking ourselves into worry about them while we procrastinate, are things
that we are repeatedly told through advice columns in the paper and magazines. For many
of us these things are all good advice, but sometimes we may need some help to navigate
our way through a patch we are fnding difcult. Please remember that this is normal and a Paradisum performing in the
good thing to do. Town Hall at the Big Sing
