Principal's Message End of Term 2

Kia ora Parents and Whanau

It was certainly great to be able to reinstate our school assemblies in the last week of term, allowing us to celebrate the many academic, sporting and cultural successes that our students have achieved throughout this term. To assist with social distancing we have split assemblies into Year 7 and 8 cohorts.

The integrative learning experiences and achievements acknowledged at assembly clearly demonstrates great student involvement in our learning pathway. It also shows the Northcross Learning Dispositions of being Reflective, Engaged, Self-Motivated, Perseverance, being Explorers, Collaboration and Tolerance are being demonstrated through real life experience. These include, but are not limited to; Year 7 students placing first, second and third in the North Harbour Mathex competition (picture featured above); Georgina O Connell winning the, ‘’Least We Forget’, ANZAC Poetry Competition at the Auckland Museum; Sophie Herde winning 1st place at the National Orienteering Competition; Our Kapa Haka group for their help in welcoming visitors, fare welling staff and promoting Matariki at Long Bay College and last Saturday at the Mairangi Bay Arts Centre;  Our Future  Problem Solvers coming 1st and 2nd in the New Zealand Competition and going on to represent Northcross virtually on the worldstage; Stuff and Nonsense crew performing at school and locally; Year 8 girls and boys Football teams winning North Harbour Tournaments; Rugby open weight and under 55 kilograms winning the North Harbour Championships; the Girls Hockey team winning the North Harbour Championships; the Northcross Stars winning League 1 at North Harbour basketball; our Northcross Dance Troupe winning the Intermediate National Dance Challenge.

Congratulations to all students involved and thank you to our staff for providing them with the guided opportunities to learn and be challenged.

A reminder this is the last of term 2 – we break for 2 weeks on Friday the 8th of July returning 25th July. Please have a safe and relaxing break.
