The education of our young people is a partnership between school and home. We encourage the closest possible communication between parents or caregivers and our school. We appreciate being informed of problems at home that may affect the student’s learning or behaviour at school. Likewise, we will contact you when appropriate.
Our weekly newsletter is handed out to students on a Friday afternoon. Details of coming events and news of school activities are contained in the newsletter. You can also access the newsletter on our website. www.waimate-high.school.nz
