Southwards have agreed that we can now sell 350 tickets for the ball. This means that there will be a reasonable number of tickets available for outside partners. I have attached the outside ball partner application forms here. Please put your name in the Google Doc so that we know you are applying by the end of Wednesday. Please have all application forms back to me by Friday 29 May at the latest. I will process them all as they come in.

If there are too many applicants, priority will be given to Year 13 students. Please note that there are restrictions about the age of outside partners - see the application form. We require character references for all outside partners from their school or employer - see outside ball application forms. Contact me with any questions.

As soon as you get the signed contract, reference and photo to me, I will process it then send you an email to say you can buy your ticket. The office will have the name of your partner. Ex KC students do not need a reference or photo, unless they have been gone for more than two years. Do not worry about the CV. I have taken this off the instructions.

Talk your assessments into your computer. Check out the latest Google Chrome addon and save yourself hours of typing. Just select your language (at the bottom, choose English, New Zealand)  then start recording by choosing the mic image on the right.

 If you have a Mac, it already has built-in dictation. You can turn this on in system preferences. Please see Ms Maxwell for help, if you need it.
