Announcements & important info
WHS OPTION AFTERNOON - TUESDAY 26 JULY
The Option Afternoon presentations for Parents/Caregivers and students will begin at 1:50pm on Tuesday 26 July in the following venues:
- Current Year 9 Students – Performing Arts 2
(Robertson Block, off Gorge Road)
- Current Year 10 Students – D7
- Current Year 11 and Year 12 Students – Stadium
Students and Parents/Caregivers will be given information on the 2017 option selection process. Following the presentations, Parents/Caregivers and students will be given the opportunity to meet with Teachers, Deans, Heads of Learning Areas and Senior Staff to discuss options available and pathways in each of the Learning Areas. While we are mindful that current Year 9 students have already selected their options for 2017, this afternoon provides Parents/Caregivers and students the opportunity to gather more information - to discuss and either confirm their options or change their mind.
The afternoon begins at 1:50pm and is open until 4:00 pm.
Year 13 students will be dismissed early at approximately 2:00pm and all Year 9-12 students must remain at school until 3.25pm.
Buses will run as normal at 3.25pm.
We look forward to seeing Parents/Caregivers and students for this important afternoon.

ANNIVERSARY DAY 2017 AND BEYOND
Following input from local businesses and subsequent discussions and careful consideration by all Queenstown schools, it has been decided that the Wakatipu Basin schools will - from 2017 onwards - observe Otago Anniversary Day rather than Southland Anniversary Day. This change is aimed at aligning with local businesses and simplifying arrangements for our students and their families. For 2017, this means that WHS will be closed on Monday 20th March.
