Malo e Lelei, Goeie Dag, Ni Hao, Namaste and warm greetings to you
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.
