A big congratulations goes to all of our award recipients for their academic successes. A link to photos will be emailed to all award recipients and their families on Wednesday, December 9.

Collect your 2020 Yearbook

On Wednesday, December 9 and Thursday, December 10, students are invited to the Students Centre at interval and lunchtimes to collect a very important piece of LBC memorabilia – the 2020 Yearbook! This 100 page book features highlights of what was a very different kind of year.
This year, we created a special cover for the Yearbook that references the strong connections of our school communty, despite the distance and isolation we all experienced with almost nine weeks of lockdown under COVID-19 alert levels 3 and 4. Many thanks to the students who took part in the cover photography shoot.

11 wins at Ballroom nationals

Congratulations to our student, Jack Lowe, who has amassed an amazing haul of NZ Ballroom Dancing top titles. Jack, and his dance partner Arwyn, competed in the New Zealand Ballroom Dance Championships recently and came away with 11 New Zealand titles. Eight of these were in youth events (16 years to 21) and three at adult level two (over 21). The pair even made it into the prestigious adult Latin final, placing sixth – just behind Brad and Brittany Coleman of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ fame!
