Latest News – January 2011
We are looking forward to the start of the 2011 school year after another very good year at our college in 2010. Congratulations to Ryan De Vries for being named as the Soccer Player of the Year for the greater Auckland region at the ASB Young Sports Person of the Year Awards and for being chosen in the top five boys for the overall award. We wish Ryan all the best for his future in football at Club and International level. Congratulations also to our Girls 1st XI Hockey Team for winning their North Harbour Senior A Competition and to the Boys 1st XV Rugby Team for winning their IB Competition. The 1st XI Boys Cricket Team won their top North Harbour Grade as well, so 2010 proved to be a very strong year in sports for our small school, punching above its weight.
While our 2010 sports successes were enjoyed we also showed our versatility by winning the judges award at the 2010 Auckland Secondary Schools Bollywood Dance Competition, for the second time, and blew the audience away with the Dance extravaganza evening in November. Our Drama students excelled in the production of Beauty and the Beast and the Concert Band won silver at the KBB Music Festival again.
In December our Year 9 classes worked on an integrated study of the Hangi, for their final few days at school, culminating in a hangi that fed 200 people. This was enjoyed by all and brought 2010 to a very positive close.
