      • Welcome Back
        • 2 Feb 2017
        • Queen Margaret College
        • It’s been a great start to 2017 with all girls on full timetable by the end of the first day and I was particularly impressed when I visited the Library at the end of Monday to see a number of senior girls hard at work in the study carrels! The week began with the Leaders' Commissioning Service where the Prefects and House Leaders were presented with their badges of office in front of the school and their proud parents. At the ceremony, Head Prefect, Georgia Taylor, announced the student theme for the year, Flourish, which will guide the programme of activities organised by our student leaders.   Also at the assembly we welcomed all newly enrolled students including a number of international students who are joining us at the start of the year from China and Japan. I look forward to getting to know all of our new students and their families better over the next while and hope they will enjoy their time at the College.   Throughout the week were the Parent Information Evenings, an opportunity for parents to meet up and to be introduced to staff including the Dean and form teachers. It was great to catch up with so many parents at these events which continue throughout next week. We place a lot of importance on easy communication between school and home and in the Year Level presentations I provided an overview of communications at the College and indicated that there would be detailed information in this newsletter. You can find this here and it is also published in your daughter’s logbook. Have a lovely Waitangi Day.
