Further details about the end of year calendar

Good afternoon everyone, Teenaa koutou,  It has been great to see all the students back at school again over the last week. When I catch up with them they are enthusiastic about being back and getting on top of their learning.

We seem to have all learnt more about how to manage the challenges of continuing on with learning and dealing with the uncertainty that ...

COVID Lockdown 4 from 11.59pm Tuesday

Good evening everyone,Teenaa koutou whaanau, The Government has often reminded us that going into a lockdown was likely, the reality, however, is another thing and I am conscious that for some this will be a difficult few days and possibly longer and my thoughts are with you during this time.

From fax-machines to now: A history of the CHS school website

This is the internet, after all, where everything that you do or say is recorded—so memory lane is pretty infallible. Picture the time. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets has just come out. Titanic had just won 11 Oscars at the 70th Academy Awards. Google, believe it or not, was founded. Everyone had th...
