Kia Ora

We’ve come to an end of another fabulous week here at Excellere College. I hope you are all happy and well out there.

So what’s been happening here this week?

  • The gym floor is complete; lines and all and it looks incredible!  Staff and students can’t wait to get back in there, and from Monday this week coming they can!  It’s all back to normal next week with all classes able to access the gym for their usual timetabled lessons!

We have new permanent basketball hoops! These ones are attached to the concrete walls at

either end of the gym – so no more pushing and pulling around of the cumbersome portable basketball hoops!

BOT parent representative nomination forms went out in the post to all parents this week. I would like to encourage you to consider taking hold of the opportunity that is available to you right now;  to be part of the team that serves our school at a governance level. If you are interested in education or have had experience in education then BOT would be a great way to contribute. If you have

experience in  finance or communication sectors or just simply love our school and if you enjoy

learning and working as part of a team then our Board of Trustees could be the place for you.

To Mr Don Birkett,

You have been the Excellere College Board of Trustees chairperson for a number of years and before you were appointed as chairperson you served as a parent representative- a total of six years altogether! You have been an amazing support to our Principal, Mr Whitehead over the years and you’ve led the Board of Trustees with wisdom, dedication and integrity. We thank you for all the time and energy you have given to the school, for the prayers you have lifted up on the school’s behalf, for the vision you have brought and the legacy that you are leaving

Although we are saddened that your time as our Board of Trustees chairperson has come to an end, we are full of hope knowing that you have created a strong and healthy Board of Trustees that is equipped and ready to lead the school into its next season.

We pray for God’s favour and continued blessing to be over you and your family.

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Luke 6:38
