PHOTOS FROM THE DAY

YEAR 8 INDUCTION MORNING – SATURDAY, 7TH NOVEMBER 2020

Dear Parents/caregivers

Congratulations on the enrolment of your child at Wesley College for 2021. We look forward to getting to know you and your whanau next year and beyond. As part of the enrolment process we would like to invite you and your child to attend an induction morning on Saturday, 7 November 2020.

We would like you to meet some of the key staff at Wesley College, have a tour of the school and most importantly take part in some cognitive assessments that will allow us to better meet the needs of your children.

The CAT4 assessment consists of 3 tests which measure the cognitive abilities of students in 4 areas. (Verbal reason, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Spatial Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning). Secondly, an additional assessment called PASS, which takes 20 minutes and gives us an indication of their views about learning and school.

Both assessments will help teachers plan lessons more effectively and allow us to understand more about how each child learns best.

Please meet at the school chapel at 10am Saturday, 7 November. The programme will run until 1:30pm

Please indicate whether you will be attending by cutting and pasting the below address to your internet web browser, complete and submit.

STUDENT LED CONFERENCES – 25TH SEPTEMBER CANCELLED

Kia Ora Whanau

After taking advice from the Ministry of Education, it has been decided to cancel the Student Led Conferences planned for Friday, 25 September, the last day of the school term.

Whilst Auckland is on Alert Level 2.5 it is not viable, and although there is another announcement set for Monday, 21 September, we don’t believe this gives our parents/caregivers enough time to change work plans and make appointments.

School will finish on Friday, 25 September for the school holidays. Day students may leave at 1.30pm and boarders are free to be picked up.

Our aim will be that every academic mentor will contact you over the following weeks with an update and plan for your child.

Please also note the Senior Ball has also been cancelled.

SENIOR AND JUNIOR REPORTS

Senior reports will be live on the parent portal during the last week of term. Unfortunately we are unable to offer a subject report for junior students this term due to the increased time pressure as a result of lockdown. However, junior reports will be live on the portal, mid-next term.
