Welcome to the Wakatipu High School library blog.
School Pride Week will be celebrated from June 17 to June 21 this year. He aha te kaupapa? Schools’ Pride Week Aotearoa is an important annual pride campaign celebrating rainbow staff, students and whānau in school communities across the country. It is organised by the youth-led rainbow non-profit, InsideOUT Kōaro. Rainbow people are a normal part of society. We belong. That is why it is so important for rainbow tamariki and rangatahi (or those with rainbow parents and whānau) to see themselves reflected at school – so they know they are OK, and can thrive, shine and grow freely.

STUDENT LIBRARIANS We have decided that we would like to have a small number of student librarians. If you see this message, and you are interested in spending some of your breaks helping in the library, just ask Mrs Bell for an application form.

BREAKS IN THE LIBRARY You are welcome to be in the library at break times if you are reading, studying, working on a jigsaw puzzle or playing chess. When the weather is good, school policy says that you should be outside so unless you quietly occupied you can expect to be asked to leave.
