Muhammad Haziq Mohd Tarmizi - 12SHGR
by Bernadette Shaw - Thursday, 21 March 2019, 3:03 PM

It is with great sadness that the school has been informed that one of our Year 12 South Division students, Haziq Mohd Tarmizi was killed in the Deans Avenue Mosque last Friday.  This is a tragedy for Haziq's whanau, the Muslim community, and of course our school.  

Our thoughts are with Haziqs family. If your son/daughter feels as though they need support, please tell them to see their Divisional Head Dean or Counsellor. Please remember this, we are here for them.

Burnside High School is currently undertaking consultation on amending our enrolment scheme. We propose to extend our enrolment zone geographically, by changing our present home zone boundaries. 

We are one of seven co-educational state secondary schools proposing new schemes, or proposing amendments to existing schemes. Schools are co-ordinating consultation, so that their immediate and extended communities are well informed; and so that any interested or concerned...

Kia Ora Koutou,
by Bernadette Shaw - Monday, 18 March 2019, 12:08 PM

Today in the quad at lunchtime the Head Prefects will be running the #paperchainsoflove movement. 

This will be positive messages from our school written on paper, joined together to show our support for the Ōtautahi community. We are immensely proud of how you all handled yourselves on Friday afternoon and believe that the Burnside whānau has grown significantly stronger in this tough time of need which we are so appreciative of. 

If you miss the opportunity to be apart of the event today, there will be a station set up in the library and in the Senior Common Room as another chance to contribute your positive messages of love. 

Kia kaha koutou - we hope to see you all there at lunch

In regard to Friday's Events
by Bernadette Shaw - Friday, 15 March 2019, 8:04 PM

Kia ora,

He aha te mea nui o te ao?

Thank you for your support today during the events that took place in our city.

Over the weekend I hope you have the opportunity to relax and reconnect with your own whānau as you recover from the events of today.  For students who might need ongoing support from this event, they should make contact with a member of their Divisional team or Counsellor.  You may also wish to contact your GP for additional counselling and access to wider community support.

At this stage, we plan to start as usual at 9.00 am for all students. The school office will open at the later time of 8.50 am to allow staff time to be briefed on the plan for how to approach lessons for the upcoming week. The Library will still be available for students as usual from 7.30 am.  

If there are any further updates over the weekend, we will contact you via email and Moodle.

Once again, we are so very proud of the staff and students of Burnside High School  and would like to express our thanks.

He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.
