First Day of High School

Tuesday, 31 January 2012

Today was Shane’s first day of high school.

It started with a walk down Layard Street from the Junior Campus to the Senior campus, with their Year 8 teachers handing them over to their Year 9 teachers.


It’s a symbolic thing, they call it ‘Ka Hikitea – The Step Up.’ Parents line the streets and watch them , some get a bit emotional. (I didn’t cry – I may have got something in my eye though.)

Shane came home from school saying he’d had a good day. He was tired and hungry, but obviously feeling good about his new school and the years ahead. He liked his teacher (said she reminded him of the drama teacher from High School Musical) and was looking forward to starting his classes tomorrow.
