Academic Writing is a key skill required of all boys to be successful academically.  Often our boys may find this extremely difficult, but it doesn't need to be.  We have been lucky enough to secure the services of Dr Ian Hunter an expert in essay writing. His work with students all across New Zealand has led to fantastic results in both NCEA and Scholarship.  He will be presenting a simple, no nonsense and highly effective set of tools to improve both competency and results.  At whatever level staff is at, Dr Hunter has tips to improve his writing and his grades.  It is highly recommended that boys and parents come along to hear him speak on Monday 26 January at 7pm in the Maurice Joel Theatre at Otago Boys' High School.  There is no cost for this event, and it will be a way in which you can support his learning.

As this will be the first parent information event of the year I am looking forward to meeting many of you.
