Welcome to our new students, families and staff and a warm welcome back to our returning students, staff and families. We hope that you had a relaxing time with your family and friends.
The GHS PTA have been busy with the start of the school year with a morning tea for parents of our new Year 7 students after the powhiri when all students started their school year on Tuesday 2nd of February. Well done to all that were involved with the powhiri, it was a great start to the year.
The GHS PTA are starting to plan our major fundraiser for the year. We have held two very successful Rogaine events and our third is on 10th April 2016. We would like to get as many students and families to give it a go this year. Information will be sent out over the next couple of weeks and we will keep you up to date on our Facebook page. We will also be sending out a donation sheet that families are asked to consider the options to help with the costs of putting on this event. Donations could be a cash donation, a donation of baking for prizes and catering or a donation of your time to help on the day. We will appreciate any donation and thank you in advance. This year we are fund-raising for seating and shading for students around the school and furniture for classrooms.
