Kuranui College High School Magical September 13, 14, 15This year’s Kuranui College musical production, “High School Magical”, is a pantomime loosely based on the Cinderella fairy tale.

Cinderella moves to the South Wairarapa with her flirtatious step mother, popular sister, nerdy sister and her goth sister. When she starts at High School Magical, Cinderella is only interested in a boy named Harry but an evil villain tries to keep them apart. Will her fairy god mother be able to save the day, save the prom and save Cinderella from a friendless life at school?

The musical opens with two matinees to primary schools on 11 September and to the public for three nights, the 13th, 14th and 15th of September starting at 7pm.

Tickets are $5 each or $20 for a family. Please pay at the door!

ERO Educational Review Office

The ERO (Education Review Office) report on Kuranui College for 2011 has been confirmed, and is available for viewing here.

Elements of the report include:

Since the 2009 ERO review the roll has grown by 70 students. Property development is underway with a new science and mathematics block being built. The board of trustees and school leaders have systematically addressed, through a monitored action plan, the issues identified in the previous ERO review.

Aspects of student achievement have improved markedly in recent years. Improvements to the achievement of students at Levell in National Certificates of Educational Achievement (NCEA) and in gaining literacy and numeracy credits are evident. The number of senior students leaving school with at least Level 2 qualifications is growing.

The school has developed practices, since the previous review, that assist it to better sustain and improve performance. Close, regular monitoring of students’ achievement and progress is achieved through [various processes]. These processes are supported by clear guidelines and expectations, and focus on improving outcomes for students. They create accountability, ownership and reinforce strategic direction.

ERO is likely to carry out the next review in three years.
