Associate Principal's Message
At Wakatipu High School, our vision is for ‘Aotearoa/New Zealand’s best all-round education’ and once again this week has delivered a multitude of opportunities for students to learn and develop in and out of the classroom.
Branches Camp offers students the opportunity to learn and grow holistically through a range of experiences, and Camp 1 is off to a stellar start, as the 120 students have been experiencing the ‘Best of Branches’ - from Rafting to Polnoon to Lochnagar, and much more. A huge thanks to the Branches Trust and WHS Foundation who generously support the camp. To run a camp of this magnitude requires significant resources and while the cost per student is $670, families are only asked to contribute $350 per student. Thanks to those who have already made their $350 contribution, and thanks in anticipation to those who will make the contribution.
Meanwhile the other half of Year 10 have been doing the ‘in-school programme’, focused on wellbeing and resilience. Yesterday, the students went up the Remarkables and helped clean up the environment while learning about the importance of citizenship and service. A reminder that the ‘in-school programme’ is a compulsory component of school and all Year 10 students should be attending this invaluable programme.
We look forward to welcoming back Camp 1 on Monday and seeing Camp 2 off on Tuesday 6 December (and a reminder that there is no school for Year 10’s on Monday 5).
See below for photos and more info on Branches and the in-school programme.
A few weeks ago, we were informed that Helena Hornbacher (Yr 13) and Isabelle Mahoney (Yr 9) had received the ICAS Medal for English and Writing, respectively. Each student was the top student in all of New Zealand and the Pacific in their respective categories. This is quite an achievement, and very uncommon, let alone for two students to win a medal from the same school in the same year, and yet this is the 2nd year in a row that WHS students have won at least two medals! What’s even more remarkable, is that this is the third year in a row that Helena, WHS’ co-Dux, has won a medal, as she received the English ICAS medal in 2020, and the English and Writing ICAS medal in 2021. See below for more details on all the ICAS achievements, and my congratulations to all those students who are striving to reach their potential, Kā Mauka Whakatipu!
On Thursday, the annual WHS Foundation Golf Tournament was held again at Millbrook. With more than $45,000 raised, the support that the WHS Foundation and Wakatipu community give to WHS is truly humbling. These funds have an immense impact on students’ all-round education, and as a school we are extremely grateful to everyone who is involved with organising and supporting events that contribute to the delivery of Aotearoa’s best all-round education. Next year, the WHS Foundation has committed $450k to the school which is phenomenal and makes a difference to the educational and all-round outcomes for students. The additional funds will allow us to double the amount of Literacy and Numeracy support, decrease the costs associated with extracurricular activities and so much more. Be sure to see below for the full list of things that funds from the Foundation are providing and also to see how you can help support the Foundation.

Branches Camp 1
Branches In School Programme
For the last 3 days the Branches Camp 2 students have been taking part in activities at school with the goals of improving their personal growth, resilience and wellbeing.
Teaching staff have been sharing their "secret skills" with students in the mornings. Ākonga got to choose two skills from origami, netball, international food and culture, sport and planting and knitting.
On Thursday the students volunteered their time at the Remarkables Ski Area to perform community service by cleaning up parts of the ski area.
Science Pollinator's Garden
We now have a beautiful “Science Pollinator’s Garden” thanks to a generous donation of trees and shrubs from Bunnings and the tremendous planting efforts of our Year 10 Branches students, and support teachers.
The garden will be an important resource allowing students to understand the science behind sustainable practice. For instance, students will study aspects of flowering plants and the importance of bees and other pollinators in society, especially since bees in particular are on a decline in population. Apart from understanding the Science (plants, insects, environmental conditions) they will also consider the associated socioscientific issues to improve the outcome/ awareness of natural pollination into the future.

Year 9 Connected Curriculum Showcase
The 5XCR (cross-curricular) Year 9 academic course combines English, Maths and Science classes. All students who partake in this course form one whole group, which rotates through each of the three classes. Our cross-curriculum class has been phenomenal, and the teachers have been extraordinary, as we acquire new knowledge and skills every lesson.
This unique experience teaches students skills that will help them throughout high school using the context of current-world events. Students who participate in this course learn about time management, teamwork, responsibility, and other vital academic skills. However, not only did this course improve us academically, but it also supported and developed our wellbeing, respect towards others, and empathy, as we studied about real-world problems. This distinct journey helps us learn more effectively by relating classwork to content outside of the classroom.
The 5XCR course only takes place in one semester (two school terms). In Term 3, which was our first term of 5XCR, we learnt about the issues endangering the environments of Lake Hayes, and innovative solutions to combat this. During Term 4, we were given the privilege of choosing our own individual project to engage in. These projects had to be about one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and the aim was to be 'inventive, innovative, or campaign' for one of the goals. Several spectacular creations were produced; all of these were displayed in the foyer this week for other students and parents to appreciate. The Showcase proved how proud the cross-curricular class should be of their work in this course.
This is the second year this cross-curricular course has taken place, it was very successful and lots of fun. We are all incredibly grateful to our wonderful teachers Ms Ford, Ms Jermy, and Ms Aspin for giving us such an exceptional opportunity.

Congratulations to all 5XCR students, including the following who were awarded prizes for their work:
Best Inventor - Makam Adams
Best Campaigner - Harvey McGee
Best Innovator - Jackon Nolan
Highly Commended Campaigner - Stella Esler
Highly Commended Innovator - Alisa Schenk
Blue Light Life Skills Award
Year 10 Wakatipu High School student Taurus Murray was awarded the Overall Merit Award at the Blue Light Life Skills programme held at Burnham Military Camp from 14 Nov - 18 Nov.
Blue Light’s Southern Life Skills Coordinator Nicola Patterson, who was at the camp, said “Taurus was awarded the Overall Merit Award through his consistent progress throughout the camp, his self-discipline, and support of others”.
The Rotary Club of Queenstown set aside funding for Taurus along with fellow students Declan Hogan and Harley Williams to attend the camp.
This highly successful programme has been run by New Zealand Blue Light in partnership with NZ Defence Force for the past 12 years and has adventure-based experiential learning as a key part of the programme. The programme provides 14-17-year olds’ critical life skills such as self-development, self-control, and teamwork that will enable young people to be successful at home, school, communities, and employment.
We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge The Rotary Club of Queenstown for their continued support of the youth in our school through their sponsorship of the Blue Light Life Skills programme.
Get reading this summer
This Week’s Word of the Week: prosper /ˈprɒspə/ verb: be successful
As the end of the school year approaches, exams are now done and dusted, and students will finally be able to switch off and enjoy their well deserved summer break - a chance to revel in everything they love to do, from video games to mountain biking - Queenstown is their oyster - but how many students will take the opportunity to find a quiet space over the holidays, sit down with a good book, and read?
I’m sure it comes as no surprise that reading for pleasure declines throughout secondary school as curricular demands increase and students prioritise socialising, various sporting activities and everything else a teenager likes doing with their time. And don’t get me wrong, doing all of these things we enjoy are so important for our wellbeing, but making time to relax and delve into a fictional novel, one that takes us on a wondrous journey, really does have a heap of benefits too.
And what better time to motivate children to get back into reading - Aotearoa’s literacy crisis is something schools all over New Zealand are talking about, and with a decline in reading for pleasure being a key driver of this literacy downturn, it is time to get books back into our children’s hands. If we can understand more about our influence in creating young readers and the potential impact of reading for pleasure, we will have more of an effect in encouraging and supporting reading. And if our whānau, school and wider community can work together in collaboration, we can build a community that encourages reading and supports our tamariki.
So often, I hear, “My child was always a great reader.”, “They read so many books when they were younger.” Unfortunately, the reality is, as children grow up, many grow out of reading. And the importance of reading for pleasure has a tonne of evidence as to why our kids really do need to continue exposing themselves to a good book. Just like many other skills, literacy can be lost if we do not use it and research has shown that as regular reading declines over the summer period, student’s literacy skills slide, making it a struggle when returning to school in the new year.
So what are the benefits of reading for pleasure? Regular reading has a positive effect on reading achievement. Students are exposed to greater vocabulary, and reading for pleasure, particularly books, leads to better reading comprehension. These are all skills that students need, not only to achieve in school, but to be successful and productive in life.
‘Reading is the basic tool in the living of a good life’ – Mortimer Adler
Furthermore, if a student enjoys reading, literacy achievement is more attainable. And fiction books (rather than comics and magazines) are most closely associated with these literacy benefits. Therefore, if a student is positively engaged in reading, this will impact their reading frequency. So what can we do to make this happen? Well, whether a student is at the learning to read stage, or if they are reading to learn, it is still paramount that we, as parents, carers and teachers encourage our children to read for pleasure. It is key that they have supportive social influences in their lives that have an expectation and are there to motivate them. Even better if we can model keen reading, and also participate in shared reading activities with them such as reading aloud and discussing books. These are all well-researched strategies that we can use in school and at home to encourage young people to read and boost our teen’s engagement. And remember, like other skills, reading also develops with practice. So, with the right foundations, practising good reading will help young struggling readers to read more fluently.
But wait. For some, you may be thinking that your child needs more help with writing, not reading? Well, there is a direct link between reading and writing, and how reading improves writing skills, guiding children to successfully imitate the skills authors have used and apply them in their own work.
Lastly, not only can a book enhance student performance in literacy, it can support their growth and attainment in many other areas too. Regular reading of fiction has not only been shown to help children develop social skills such as empathy, but reading offers cognitive and behavioural benefits, building the stamina needed to apply sustained attention to completing complex tasks. Basically, reading helps children to focus - a crucial life skill that extends well beyond school years. And just like sports and fitness, reading supports wellbeing, providing a pleasurable and immersive escape from everything else going on in the world around our children. Our kids can use reading as a way of regulating their emotions and coping with stressors and challenging times.
So you have finally convinced your child to read over the holidays, but now you have the issue of finding a suitable book. Often, when it comes to choosing a book, many young people struggle with a lack of good strategies for book choice. To help with this, below is a short list of ‘Great Teen Read’ book recommendations, in no particular order, from Whitcoulls that you could (but are not limited to) start with.
- The Whispering Dark by Kelly Andrews
- Shadow Hunters Series by Cassandra Clare
- Demon in the Wood (Graphic Novel) by Leigh Bardugo & Dani Pendergast
- The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne
- My Mechanical Romance by Alexene Farol Follmuth
- All the Best Liars by Amelia Kahaney
- Indigo Moon by Eileen Merriman
- Our Violent Ends by Chloe Gong
How to Develop your Child’s Reading Habit?
Reading every day
Set aside some time daily for reading. Ensure that they read for at least 20 minutes every day. It is a great start to develop the habit of reading.
Make reading a pleasurable activity
Ensure that they enjoy what they are reading. This will accelerate the learning process. Get them to share the books they are reading and describe them to family and friends. This could be a good way for others to recommend their favourite books. Once they have completed reading the book, they could even write a blog on it. Get your child to keep a log of what they have read and prepare a list of books that they want to read in the future. The more books they read, and the more authors they come across, the easier it will be to find books they will enjoy. The QLDC Library has a great reading challenge on this summer for teens - see our community notices for more.

South Island Junior Volleyball Champs
The WHS 9A and 10A girls teams competed at the South Island Junior Volleyball Champs in Nelson last week. They had a tough few days battling against good teams, picking up sets and enjoying really close battles but unfortunately were unable to notch up a win. The 10A’s competed in Division 1 for the first time while the 9A’s competed in Division 2. Both teams really grew and developed significantly over the course of the three day tournament. It was quite the South Island road trip heading up the West Coast staying in Hokitika on Sunday night and travelling back inland staying in Hanmer on Thursday night. A massive six days away that was lots of fun and a great experience for all involved. A huge thank you to our all star coaches Steve Henderson and Mrs Panapa and our number one camp mum, Rachel Vermeir. Ka pai te mahi to all!

Junior Boys Cricket Tournament
Our Junior Boys Cricket team enjoyed a three day tournament at St Kevins in Oamaru this week beating St Thomas’ of Canterbury Year 9 and Southland Boys and losing to St Thomas’ of Canterbury Year 10 in 40 over matches. This was an awesome opportunity to travel away and play longer forms of the game against players of the same age. There were a number of highlights across the three days but the top one was Hugo Bogue’s 295 run innings on day one against St Thomas’ Year 9 team. A remarkable effort that earned him a nice wee article in the ODT, check it out here: https://www.odt.co.nz/regions/queenstown/teenager-shows-tons-talent. Well done to all players on their contribution to the team over the four days away and a huge thank you to our coaches Mr Overton and Bevan Clarke, we really appreciate all the mahi from them.
