Evidence Examinations will be occurring at SGHS. It is essential that all students sit these Evidence Exams as they provide vital data on student achievement and progress. If we were to have an unexpected event during the NZQA exams in November these are the grades that your child’s results will be based upon. Thus, making the evidence gathered in these school exams essential for establishing grades for our students.
If your child is unwell during the Evidence Exam time and cannot attend please contact Lee Pirini; (Assistant Principal in charge of Assessment) to work out the next steps. [email protected]
