Year 8 Students Visit Tamaki College

On Thursday of Week 5 our Year 8 students had the amazing opportunity to participate in a 'transition day' at Tamaki College.  They got to experience first hand, what going to college feels like.  Students were put into mixed classes with Year 8 students from others schools around our community and moved around as real college students would, from English, Maths and Food Technology, to Business Studies, Social Studies and Science.  It was a great day and we look forward to returning in Term 3 for the next transition day!

Kapa Haka 2014

Yesterday was the first practice for our Kapa Haka 'Performance Group.'  We are so lucky this year to have Whaea Salena and Matua Wiremu helping out with the group!  Yesterday we started learning the Lord's Prayer Waiata. The group were so quick to pick it up and sounded beautiful.  We can't wait for next week's practice!
