Year 13 Leaver's Haka - Final Post!

Hi everyone.

As you may have noticed there had been a long time between posts and I'm sad to say this will be the final post in what has been our year group website for the last couple of years. I think this blog has served a useful purpose in introducing our community to the Junior school activities and it has created stronger ties between our families, the students and our School. The site will stay in place as a memory vault of our Junior school and will no doubt be looked at when our year group reaches the end of Year 13.

On that note, on Wednesday our Junior school said farewell to the Seniors with an incredibly moving performance of our school Haka. The Haka is something special the Juniors have been working on over the last few weeks and the reaction of the Year 13's and many staff was overwhelming pride in our school community. The moment was captured in film by a keen Year 9 film-maker (Toby Harding) and is very much worth a watch.

It seems fitting to end this blog by looking at a student-led performance, as I love to celebrate the diverse and supportive young people that make up this amazing year group.

The next few weeks sees a focus on Examinations and I would like to wish everyone the best for the journey ahead.

So long and ka kite.
