A Message from the Deputy Principals
The National Young Leaders Day is an annual event for our Ambassadors, House Captains and Student Leaders. The theme of the day was ‘Stronger Together’. We were inspired by a man named Cam Calken who has cerebral palsy. He shared his journey to becoming a speaker on the circuit. This was followed by an ex black sticks player – Brooke Neal, who walked us through the challenges of becoming a top sports person. After that we heard from a Young New Zealander of the Year recipient – Shay Wright who talked about being an entrepreneur. Finally, we were delighted to hear from Julian Dennison – alias Rikki Baker.
Our students were all amazing and took every opportunity to be involved.

Last Wednesday, four teams from Years 5 and 6 participated in the Bay Suburbs Football Tournament at Glover Park along with eight other local schools.

Our results were:
