We are in the process of identifying a group of talented students to undertake a special project in the afternoons when normal classes have finished.

Gate Conference 2011
by Sandra Pooch - Monday, 11 April 2011, 9:28 AM

The Gete Conference is still taking place early next term. This is available to Gifted and Talented students from Year 10 and 11. Year 11 students need to check with their teachers that they can afford to have the time off. If you have not received a letter and would like to go please see Mrs Pooch. The speakers from the United Kingdom are amazing, challenging, and will stimulate you to think outside the square. In addition you will have the opportunity to work with students from other schools around Christchurch.
