The Middle School covers Years 9–11. Head of Middle School is Mikae Tuu'u.
As I write this piece for the newsletter, I look back on this term and think to myself what an incredibly busy and emotional time. I have been impressed with the Middle School students and how they have shown huge resilience and compassion in trying times. Whether it be some baking for seniors, or giving to worthy causes, our students have lived our values and I have seen this on many occasions. I am in no doubt that everyone will be looking forward to a nice relaxing break. I hope that we see you in Term 2 refreshed and ready to go.
The Year 9 students will by now have completed their camps up at Castle Hill. I have no doubt that there would have been a range of experiences up there from really fun to extremely challenging and everything else in between. I have appreciated the way in which the Year 9 students have participated in the activities and shown great spirit in overcoming the many challenges. I have received reports that the amount of support and encouragement shown towards peers has been exemplary.
