A message from the Principal
Enga mana, e nga reo, nga karangatanga maha o te kura tua rua o Pewhairangi, nga mihi nui o te wa, tata ki te taenga mai, o te karaiti. Tena koutou, tena tatou katoa.
A variety of educational activities outside the classroom were term highlights. The Year 10's returned from a highly successful camp on Urupukapuka Island. They were blessed with the finest of weather and completed all challenges without a single mishap. I thank Mr Prakash, Year 10 Dean and Team Fantastic, made up of staff, senior students and parents that helped to achieve the 100% safety record, along with fun filled learning. 
The Year 9's activity week saw staff and students interacting in exciting activities within our school, the wider community and as far afield as
Auckland. Mrs Boyde–Preece, the Year 9 Dean had her Dream Team to assist her to provide experiences that staff and students are still talking about.
The importance of team work and building relationships with others was what this week was all about and seeing students achieve this goal has been a wonderful way to end the year.
I wish to acknowledge Mrs Karen Yates, who leaves us at the end of this year, for the contribution that she has made to our college in the short time that she has been with us. Thank you Karen, go with our best wishes.
After 35 years of service in our school library, Mrs Elaine Heeney has decided to call time out for good.  On behalf of the generations of Bay of Island’s students and staff that she has served, I thank Elaine, whose legacy of loyalty and commitment is legendary.
Until we meet again in the New Year, may you have a safe and happy Christmas holidays with loved ones around you.
No reira noho marika mai koutou, 
tae noa mai ki te wa, e tutaki ano tatou, a tera tau.
Nga mihi nui o Te
Kirihimete, me te Tau Hou hoki.
