Students should use this time wisely at home working on assignments and on their programmes of learning through Schoology.

This is also a reminder that a Teacher Only Day will be held on Friday 16th June. This a Hillcrest Kaahui Ako day involving all the schools in the immediate region who belong to the Hillcrest Kaahui Ako Community of Learning. Staff from these schools will be meeting at Hillcrest High School for a day of professional learning.

On another note an outside group InsideOUT will be coming to speak to Year 9 students on the 22nd June during Period 2. This organization works with youth in schools to help ensure communities are inclusive of all students. If you wish to check out more information on what they do please click here

Should the rostering home cease at any stage we will let you know.
