A message from the Principal 
Kia ora tatou
Busy, exciting and successful describe what is happening in and out of school for our students at present. They have participated alongside staff and Ngati Hine iwi, in the powhiri last Sunday at Pipiwai for the Waitangi Tribunal officials. The hearing of Ngati Hine claims ran from 8-9 August.
On Tuesday and Wednesday morning the cast of Xanadu received positive acclaim from the schools that attended the matinees. The evening shows were sell outs with audiences being treated to a pre-show dinner if they chose to support fund raising for the Kapa Haka Hawaii tour.
We look forward with great anticipation and excitement to one of the premier senior events of the year the annual school ball which will be at Waitangi Golf Club on Saturday 16 August.
The Teacher Only Days offered professional development for all staff at Bay of Islands College not just teaching staff. It included a marae noho ( stay over ) and was held at Motatau Marae. This Ministry of Education and Auckland University backed initiative called “Kia Eke Panuku” ( Building on Success ) provides the opportunity for individual schools to identify where their needs are and then decide how best to address those needs.
A good number of staff experienced success with the Te Kotahitanga initiative. Kia Eke Panuku is about exploring ways that all staff can share and build on this success with our students and community. It was pleasing to be apart of the community of Motatau for a brief time and to participate in the open forum with them on Monday evening.
E kore matou e warewaretia to manaakitanga ki a matou, Ngati Te Tarawa hapu, Ngati Hine iwi.
Tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa.
Noho ora mai
John Paitai
