Kia Ora, Kia Orana, Talofa Lava, Malo e Lelei, Goeie Dag, Ni Hao, Namaste and warm greetings to you all.


The Education Review Office (ERO) team comprising Paul Matthews, Ann Motutere and Violet Tu’ulaga Stevenson were in school this week. We received feedback that was extremely positive and highly affirmative of the work that has been conducted in the school over the past 18 months. In particular, they referred to our NCEA results which are easily the best results that Tokoroa High School has enjoyed. I thank all of our staff and students for their efforts in terms of raising our academic performance standards. I also thank our parents for the support given to our young people to achieve their academic goals. I would additionally like to thank the groups of parents who met with the ERO team this week. Your comments were productive and highly supportive of the school.

To further aid academic achievement, ‘Block Learning Term 1’ takes place next week beginning on Monday. In ‘block learning’ subject class tutorials are condensed into two hour teaching blocks. Six learning blocks will take place over three days next week.

Congratulations to our students who have achieved outstanding sporting results in Athletics, Ki-O-Rahi, Swimming, Girls Cricket and Touch recently. We remain the premier school in the South Waikato, not only in academic, but also sports achievement.

Bereavements, especially of close family members, can be extremely difficult time and I wish to offer condolences to all from our school community who have experienced the loss of a family member or friend this year. Wishing God’s blessings upon each and every one of you.



Kind regards


William Ford
