Syndicate Assembly

Every odd week, our leaders organise a Tōtara syndicate assembly.

This week, we were able to appreciate Zeke, Abbi and Georgia's work that they shared with us, celebrate our young leaders who attended a conference earlier in the week and applaud Liam, Samantha, Olivia, Sophia, Dylan, Lois, Tessa and Fletcher for their effort and achievements in their classes. What a neat bunch of students we have at our school!
