Sports teams will be competing on the college fields during the open day and subject departments will have displays and staff ready to answer any questions. The principal will give a brief address to groups of families at 11:00, 12:00 and 1:00.

The enrolment cycle for 2022 begins on the open day with enrolments closing off on Friday 9 July. Enrolment packs can be collected from the college that day. As the college has reached its maximum roll, it is important that enrolments are received by the close off date.

Over the last year, those travelling along Waterloo Road will have seen the construction of a new Library and Information Technology Centre. While the official opening won’t be until Tuesday 1 June, visitors to the open day can get a sneak preview and walk through the beautiful architecturally designed modern learning space.

Louise Thomas has provided this weeks Friday Feathered Friend.

"Nature abhors a vacuum. The old adage has seen the white-fronted terns/tara (Sterna striata) move onto the Petone Wharf as a convenient perching spot for hawking (terning?) for fish. Such sleek birds, they turn on a dime, their brilliant white feathers catching the sun as they dive like professionals into the briny.
The old wharf, stretching almost 400m out into harbour, was closed (although a few foolhardy humans ignore the signs and climb the fence) in January for six weeks (hah!) for “urgent” repairs after the earthquakes over the New Year caused it to slump a bit in the middle. To be fair, the piles are infested with marine worms turning the ancient trunks into so much Swiss cheese and the bolts holding it all together are rustier than my first car, so it wouldn’t have taken much. Having seen a cross-section of a pile, I’m surprised it hasn’t collapsed before now. I am looking forward to it reopening though, I miss being able to walk so far out into the harbour – it’s where all the good stuff happens."

Help keep our services free to patients, their families and whānau, by giving generously when you see an official volunteer collecting in the Hutt Valley or you can donate online today.

Meet Gabe, who is deaf but sounds like a lot of fun.

"I was transferred from Porirua Animal Control. I am a special dude who has had an unusual start to my rehoming journey. I am completely deaf but that doesn't stop me having a great time! I am a loveable boy who has stolen the hearts of everyone at the centre. I am looking for an experienced owner, who has a suitable property for me to thrive in. I'm always up for a walk or a game to play, and I love to find things to do and keep active. I am looking for a home with teenagers or adults, and a home without cats or small animals. I am happy to play with other active dogs, and love to be social with both people and dogs. If you are interested in me and my goofy personality - chat to the canine team."
