WHS Newsletter | Issue 2.09 | 9 July 2021
Kia ora and welcome to the Wakatipu High School newsletter at the end of Term 2.
The term has finished with our mighty Matatū Assembly this afternoon, which is such an important part of our school and our culture and our all-round education. Once again today the performances were fantastic - reflecting the work and effort that has been put in over the last few weeks, as well as the passion and energy that the students bring to this special event. A huge thanks to the Deans, staff and student House leaders who have led the preparation for today. My congratulations to all of the students who were involved for their commitment and performances, and special congratulations to Duncan House on their win.
Staying with the theme of great performances, at the board meeting on Monday we presented a review of our results from last year compared to national data. Once again we have done very well as a school, with our UE results in the top 2% for state co-ed schools - pretty amazing. Whether it happens to be UE or any other qualification, we want our students to leave WHS with the best possible qualification so that they have the best possible options and opportunities for their futures, and our results and leavers’ data is showing that we are doing a pretty good job of that.
Also at the board meeting I presented a summary of the parents strategic plan review feedback. We had 122 responses, and a big thanks to everyone who took the time to do that, we do appreciate it. A brief summary with the key themes (over 20 respondents):
- A number of key strengths were identified: our all-round education, including extracurricular opportunities (52); that we have high expectations (44); teachers (36); communication (35); leadership (30); the range of subjects we offer (26); and the new school and facilities (26).
- The main concern was re student behaviour (21).
- In terms of the future, the message was to keep our all-round education including extracurricular opportunities, including Branches and camps (71!)
- There was also strong support (78%) for the vision, and a very strong message re student achievement - with 95% saying it was important.
The responses and comments were constructive and supportive, but people certainly have high expectations of us in terms of wanting us to deliver a very high quality academic and all-round education, which is also personalised and with students being well-rounded, resilient, happy etc - no pressure … :).
This week a few of us did a walk-through of the new Phase 2 north and south wings. It is looking good, and it was great to actually see the spaces take shape after years of looking at them on paper. Things are progressing well (the roof shout is in the holidays :) and we are certainly looking forward to when we can move into them during next year. Related to Phase 2, once again these holidays we do not have access to this building and, while many of us will still be working, please note that there will be no one present in this building.
Senior PAS Reports - as per the email you will have received, are up on the Portal now. But, as above, with the building being closed the Portal will go down from 5pm Sunday until next term, so please do look at them before then.
WHS Foundation Queenstown Marathon Challenge - the ‘Suit Up!’ Business Tie Challenge is on to raise funds for the WHSF and the Branches Trust - see the link below to learn more on how to take on the challenge for these two great WHS causes.
Attendance - data that we just received from the Ministry of Education shows that the changes we made to our attendance system have made a significant difference to attendance - in particular to boys (many of whom seem to have realised that they can't just talk their way out of the new system, so they’re just following the rules and attending as they should), as well as enabling us to identify students and families who need support. The Ministry’s education area is called ‘Every Day Matters’ - which is a great name, as every day of education really does matter for students. Thanks for your support in this important area.
Term 3 - will be a busy Term, as always. There are some really important events in the first few weeks, several of which have more information below, but for your calendars please note:
- Study Skills evening (see below) - Tuesday 27/7
- 2022 Course Option Afternoon (see below) - Tuesday 3/8
- Raising Teenagers in Queenstown parent evening (see below) - Tuesday 3/8
- Junior Mid-Year Prizegiving, and Excellence, Ad Alta & Ākonga Passport Assemblies - Monday 9/8
- Accord (NCEA) Teacher Only Day - Friday 13/8
- Senior School Exams - 19-25/8
You may have seen us in a Stuff article re cctv cameras in schools. As per the article, our cameras, which are in the corridors, were approved (and paid for) by the Ministry of Education and we comply with privacy rules in how we use them. Following feedback from students and parents re behaviour and congregating in and near toilets we do use them to ensure these areas are safe, and believe that students have other options for gathering.
Term 2 is always a big one, and this year has been no exception. It has been a very good term here though, including given that we are operating with the Phase 2 work. The term may be over, but there’s a huge newsletter below including important events coming next term - be sure to have a good look through it.
My thanks to staff and students for a very good term, and I wish everyone a well-deserved break and a good refresh before we begin again on Monday 26th :)
Course Option Afternoon
The process for selecting course options for 2022 has begun, with Year 11 and Year 12 students having assemblies today and junior students having assemblies early next week.
The selection of 2022 course options needs to be completed by Friday 13 August. This very important process is supported by our annual Option Afternoon which is being held from 3:15 - 5 pm on Tuesday 3 August.
The Option Afternoon provides students and parents the opportunity to discuss and learn more from key teaching staff about the range of course options available for 2022 and supports students to make well informed option choices that support their individual pathways and passions, while also leaving as many doors open as possible for their future.
There will be a short presentation in the theatre from 3:30 - 3:50 pm for parents who would like to better understand the process and gain further insight on how best to support their student to select their 2022 course options.
Information regarding the 2022 option selection process, including detailed information pertaining to the range of course options on offer, is now available through the Schoolpoint’s website: https://wakatipu.schoolpoint.co.nz/
Additionally, parents and students are invited to make an appointment with a member of SLT to discuss course options for 2022 and beyond. This can also be done through the School Interviews website and use the code: 5eas9
Passing Exams Study Skills Seminar
The ‘Passing Exams’ seminar presents a five-step exam-preparation strategy and provides practical solutions to many common challenges students face. Parents and students have found it very informative and useful in supporting exam preparation.
SPEAKER: Patrick Sherratt (MEd Hons, BA Psych), Author of How to Pass Exams, Public Speaker and Trainer
SEMINAR COST: $10.00 (PAID TO STUDENT SERVICES)
Bookings Essential – Open to all Year 11, 12 and 13 Students and any Parents!
Register your attendance by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Parent Evening - Raising Teenagers in Queenstown
On Tuesday 3 August from 7 - 9 pm, WHS will host a range of speakers from the community who will provide parents with an update on some of the issues pertaining to being a teenager in Queenstown today, and what parents can do to support their children. More information will be available early next term but in the meantime, we strongly encourage you to save the date.
As part of our Wellbeing Curriculum this term, students have had the opportunity to complete learning and activities in line with the Term 2 theme of "Take Notice".
Our Junior students have had the opportunity to explore their strengths through a "Strength Spotting" activity. This activity was completed in conjunction with Kaiarahi, students were asked to complete the VIA Charachter Strengths Survey (see the link below). This survey provided students feedback and information about what their key character strengths are. Kaiarahi then discussed with students how they could apply these strengths to day-to-day lives in pusuit of positive wellbeing outcomes. If you haven't already, please feel free to take the survey and discuss with your friends and family what your strengths are and how you can use these strengths to benefit yourself and those around you!
Our Year 11 students have had the opportunity to complete a unit of work focused on setting a goal to enhance an aspect of personal wellbeing. Goal setting can be a powerful tool in pursuit of positive wellbeing outcomes, students were tasked with learning about the dimensions of wellbeing and what a S.M.A.R.T. goal is. Next, they were asked to explore what dimension of their wellbeing may need some attention, set a personal S.M.A.R.T goal and then reflect upon the outcome and process. If you have any questions about this or are interested in how goal setting can positively influence your wellbeing, please email me for more information!
Next term's theme will be "Keep Learning", the focus for Senior students will be centred on study skills and exam preparation. The focus for Junior students will be on learning a new skill and how this can positively influence your wellbeing.
I hope you all have a fantastic holiday!

Taonga Puori with Jerome Kavanagh
I tēnei wiki we had Jerome Kavanagh come in to the kura to do a wānanga with our students involved in Māori courses. He's an expert in taonga pūoro (traditional Māori musical instruments) and shared his vast knowledge of their origins, use, and the impact they can have. In the past he's performed at the Sydney Opera House, alongside Six60, and just last weekend alogside Drax Project.
His whakaaro (ideas) around using taongo pūoro to support the mental health and wairua of our rangatahi as well as using them to share traditional pūrākau was ka mau te wehi (awesome). Such an honour to have him here at the kura and a real inspiration for our rangatira mō apōpō (leaders for tomorrow). Ka ū, ka hā!
Make sure to check him out via his Spotify playlist 'Puoro Jerome' or via his YouTube account 'Pūoro Jerome' for some beautiful sounds and tips on turning your next roast lamb into a pūoro (instrument).
Stars Peer Mentoring Programme - Term 2 Recap
STARS Peer Mentoring throughout this term was yet again another success. As said in last term's summary, STARS is a programme in which Year 12 and 13 Student Peer Mentors work with the Year 9 students to create new relationships and show the ways of Wakatipu High School. There are many life skills learnt through these sessions done through fun activities, quizzes, games and more. This term we focused on Social Media, Social Skills, Positive Thinking as well as Time Management, all of which are skills the students will find very useful as well as relatable to their everyday lives.
The main event/component of Term 2 was the Community Adventure. In this, we had external, local services come into the school to work with the Year 9s. With the Police, Wakatipu Youth Trust and Wakatipu Search and Rescue taking their time to come in, they taught the Year 9s students all about what they do in our community which relates to our STARS life skills and WHS values through interactive activities and talks. This opportunity was a great way for the Year 9 students as well as some of the Peer Mentors to learn more about the local services offered in our community and to build new connections. A huge thank you to all who came in and offered up their expertise, I am sure everyone took away something useful from this day.
This term also saw the first WakaSTARS event. Working with the Peer Support Council, WakaSTARS ran as a fun and exciting and competitive general knowledge competition. Filled with challenges and more teams of Year 9s as well as peer mentors competed against each other to win some prizes. This was a great light-hearted competition as well as a great way for students to bond outside of the STARS sessions.
We are looking forward to the Community Project which takes place next term. This entails going out into the community and doing our bit to give back. This allows everyone to give back and to make a difference, no matter how big or small that is. We are also looking forward to exploring Sustainability, Goal Setting, Mental Toughness, and Stress Management through our sessions next term.

Year 10 Masterchef Challenge
This week the Y10 Food Technologists were pitted against each other in groups, each trying to follow a recipe and produce the most delicious and visually appealing version of the dish. Chilli, chorizo and prawn pasta, cauliflower, anchovy and caper penne, chinese pork and green beans on vermicelli noodles and pork sausage with silverbeet and bacon were on the menu. All groups performed exceedingly well and the judges were on the way to a full-blown pasta coma by the end of tasting. The left hand side of the kitchen narrowly came away with the win, and were able to go into our "End Of Term Bake Off" with a slight advantage.
It's been a great semester full of learning and mastery of basic (and not so basic) cooking techniques, and we are looking forward to welcoming newcomers to our space next semester!
Lead Prefect Message
This week brings an end to a very busy Term 2!! Time has really gone by fast and we are already halfway through the school year. Term 3 is also going to be another busy one as we start the second semester for the juniors and the seniors face their mock exams, as well as many extracurricular events.
Throughout this last week there has been a lot of House spirit brewing with everyone preparing and working hard towards the Matatū competition which took place today. This year, like any other, was a very tough competition, with each House stepping it up as usual, and it would have been very hard for the judges to pick a winner. This competition's purpose is for everyone to learn the school waita as well as haka so I hope everyone took away that from this. A big thanks to everyone who was involved, especially all of the leaders and staff who really made this day a huge success!
Term 2 has seen many events for WHS like usual. We have had House Debating, the James Hargest Exchange, Luma, University Open Days, Rockquest and Showquest, a bunch of internals for seniors and even a snow day to name a few! I commend you all for your hard work in school as well as all of your extracurricular activities. You should all be very proud of your efforts.
Everyone has done a great job this term and a break is very well deserved. So stay home and relax, get some sleep, enjoy that ski season and time up the mountains, whatever you fancy. Have some fun and I hope you all have a great holiday!
See you all next term!

Engineering Experience - University of Auckland
We were lucky to have some engineering students from the University of Auckland engage with a number of our prospective Yr12 and Yr13 engineers. The course was designed to promote women in engineering and build advocacy for females engineers.
Although this session was targeted towards females, as a co-ed school we are able to offer places to males who are also interested in engaging with a career in Engineering. This session gave the students an opportunity to explore possible pathways in this industry and begin to network with other engineers. The session was hands on and required problem solving!
