The Foundation has recently made a donation of just over $10,000 to the school for the manufacture and installation of stage curtains in the new Performing Arts Centre. The Foundation’s support of this project ensures the school is in a position to run events such as the production planned for later this year.

This donation was made possible by the PAC seating fundraiser last year along with the financial support of our members.

On April 29th, the Board of Trustees approved the Ministry of Education’s agreement to the reduction of the Cashmere High School enrolment zone.

The Ministry of Education provides capacity for 1800 students at Cashmere High School yet the current role stands at around 2000 students. To avoid the school suffering from overcrowding, the Board of Trustees was left with no option but to reduce the home zone, resulting in properties in the Opawa and St Martins areas now being excluded from the enrolment zone.

The new zone boundaries will take effect from 1st January, 2021 and will affect all 2021 enrolments.

The COVID-19 pandemic meant that Cashmere High School students were unable to attend an ANZAC Day service this year so, instead, a group of students produced this video for the school community.

It was all filmed in isolation and was even picked up by the media with a small excerpt from it being shown on the national television news on the evening of ANZAC Day.
