Kia ora tatou I would like to acknowledge the effort that several students have put in around this year’s World Vision 40-hour famine.  We have a very committed group that has done its utmost to promote this annual fundraising event.  I know there are a large number of students participating in some sort of activity this weekend and I would like to wish them all the best as they sacrifice a part of their daily routine (including technology!!), to raise funds for the famine. Our Year 11 students travelled to Dunedin on Thursday to the Dunedin Careers Expo.  This was an important opportunity for them to explore their future pathways, whether that be vocationally or furthering their education at a tertiary level.  I encourage all parents and caregivers to have conversations with their children on what their career intentions may be.  It is important that senior students and parents are informed and understand that subjects selected at Years 12 and 13 can have a significant bearing on employment and education options in the future.  If you have further questions our Careers Office are more than happy to answer them. Good luck to our Senior A, Year 10A, and Year 9A netballers this weekend as they contest the Otago Secondary Schools’ Champs at the Edgar Centre.  I am sure the girls are well prepared and will play with pride and commitment. Rachel Beattie and Logan Stadnyk are this year’s deserved Taieri College Otago Daily Times Class Act recipients.  As individuals they have made unique and significant contributions to Taieri College and I congratulate them on being selected for this prestigious award.  I would also like to acknowledge all applicants who were nominated by staff.  It was inspiring to read the stunning biographies of so many multi-talented people.
