   Prize Giving 2015


On Wednesday 3rd December at 3:00 pm we will celebrate all that our students have achieved in 2014 at our annual Prizegiving at the Civic Theatre.

To enable staff and students to prepare for this special occasion, classes will finish at 12:15 pm that day.  

Please see letter below.


Students are required to wear immaculate winter uniform for the occasion.  It will mean the shirts and kilts need to be pressed.  Girls must wear our short-sleeved white dress shirt and this will be worn outside the kilt (not tucked in). 

We would really appreciate if the iconic red shoes could receive a clean and a polish as well.


Year 13

Given the earlier start and finish time of Prizegiving we would ask if the Year 13 girls could please remember that ball make-up and hair-dos don’t quite match with the formal prize-giving and arrange for such things to happen where possible after this event.  Or at the very least, minimise the ‘Ball’ look for prizegiving.


The new Venue – Stadium Southland

We are very excited about holding the prizegiving at the Stadium and hope too, that you will appreciate the extra seating capacity that this venue allows

We have especially invited all Year 12 to attend.

It is such a wonderful event in our school calendar and we are encouraging as many attendees as would like to come.  However, there are no reserved seats for parents and whanau.  The main difference between the Civic and the Stadium is that it is not possible for people to leave during the prizegiving and so we encourage you to plan for being there the entire time (2-2.5 hours)

See you all there

Kind regards

Yvonne Browning
