As the term draws to a close at a frightening pace, we have had the opportunity to experience some incredible events over the past week.
Thursday evening involved 160+ year 11 students being bused into the city for the Year 11 formal. After several hours of dancing and music, which caused the venue to shake, we handed the now tired and happy students back to parents and started to plan the 2018 event.
Friday night saw the annual Prefect’s Quiz Night, which raises funds for the Prefect Project. This year the project is based at the Dingwall Trust in Papatoetoe, helping to renovate and redecorate a house used to house young people in need of protection and a caring and supportive family-style environment.This year’s Disney theme was very successful, resulting in a thoroughly enjoyable evening, where prefects, staff and families came together in a way unique to Kristin and showed their support.
Saturday evening saw the inaugural Open Air Cinema, organised by the KFF. Nicky Shave and her army of helpers did an amazing job in both organising the event and also ensuring that it ran smoothly on the evening. The weather also smiled on us, resulting on over 400 people attending and ensuring that this is an event we may see again in the near future.
Please enjoy the Easter break, have some ‘down time’, put the books away for a while and use the time to relax and recharge for next term. If you are travelling during the holidays, use the opportunity to try new challenges and come back ready to share these experiences with your friends. Have a great holiday.
