Congratulations to Jean Balchin for receiving the award as Dux of Waihi College for the second year in a row after winning last year as a year 12. Congratulations also to Natasha Staheli-Lowe for being awarded the Proxime Accessit (runner up).
Term 4 is, for our Senior students, the busiest and most important time of their college education. For those not involved with exams, it is still a busy term, but it can also be a time our minds become filled with things outside school and holiday dreams. So don't forget to stick with SAM.
Practice Exams for Senior Students begin Thursday 13th September. To view full timetable, go to Thursday 13th on the Events Calendar and follow link. STEP IT UP!
Always be prepared.
Keep in touch with school events on the EVENTS CALENDAR on this web site. There is a lot on this term including Drama trips, careers evenings and expos, squash and badminton champs, Geography trips to Auckland, Junior Katikati Exchange and the Aims Games. Be Prepared. Keep ahead. Know what's coming and have a great term!
