Uber Eats

Please clarify with students that they may NOT use Uber eats to get food delivered to them at school. We have a current procedure that any food delivered to the school must go through a teacher e.g some teachers arrange pizza deliveries for special occasions – this is because of Health & Safety issues surrounding unvetted delivery drivers interacting with our students

University of Otago – Theology

Congratulations to the seven Year 13 students who have passed their first university paper:

Virginia Auton,            Angelica Clarke,                      Lucy Clegg,                  Meg Henderson,
Zoe Luke,                  Emily Stephens,                       Rosie Walsh.

During the first half of this year, they studied the CHTH 102 paper, The History of Christianity, through Otago University’s Distance Programme. This covered the main outlines of the history of Christianity in the early, medieval and modern periods, with emphasis on understanding how broader historical and intellectual developments have had an impact on Christianity.

There was a lot of work involved with this, but also much satisfaction. The students can be very proud of their final overall grades which ranged from A- to Bs.
