June Progress Report

The June Progress Report will be emailed to parents / caregivers ahead of the Parent / Teacher Conferences. If you have any questions about the grades and results reflected in the Progress Report, please raise these at the parent / caregiver conference. Conversely, we appreciate you taking the time to support your son, highlighting the positives in the report.

If you do not receive your son’s progress report please contact Mrs Adrienne Burt aburt@nbhs.school.nz to update your details.

Kiwi Competitions – English, Maths and Science

Students in 9XB, 9XN and 10XG are competing in the national Kiwi Competitions, organised by the University of Canterbury. Students in these classes will be competing against other Year 9 and 10 students from across the country. The classes will complete three separate online assessments – English, Maths and Science – that run during Week 10 of Term 2 and Week 1 of Term 3. Students in these classes are encouraged to bring their own device for these assessments.

 NCEA Late Submission Policy

We would appreciate your support to ensure that your son meets the set deadlines for their internal assessments. Most NCEA internal assessments are completed during class time. Students are able to submit their work electronically through MS Teams or by completing in-class assessments.

If your son requires an extension past this deadline you are required to complete this form.

Extensions will be granted upon completion of the form and one of the following scenarios:

  • illness, accident, bereavement, or a family crisis
  • timetabled school activities, such as field trips
  • sporting or other fixtures where a student is required to represent the school
  • national or regional representation in sport or other activities.

Where the school receives no communication around a missed deadline, NZQA requires that the school report a Not Achieved grade.
