He manako te kōura i kore ai
(Wishing for the crayfish won’t bring it)
Ngā mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa
Term 3 has now finished and it definitely feels like the end of the school year for our seniors. Our seniors they have 12 periods left with each of their teachers before they leave for their end of year assessments. The whakatauki above speaks to this, especially for students who still have a lot of learning to complete. The holiday break is a good time to catch up on any missed work, and to start preparing for their externals.
Term 4 is also a busy time as we celebrate our student’s successes. Coming up next term we have the Spring Serenade, Arts Awards, Celebration of Sport, Arts Exhibition, and the Senior Prize Giving. These will all be held in the first three weeks of term 4 and the dates for these can be found in the KAMAR calendar.
To date we have been celebrating other successes in the school. I would like to congratulate our Head Student, Qiana Ram, who will be representing our school overseas in Tonga During the Holidays at an International Leadership Programme. Qiana has also received a Girl Boss Nationwide Award, worth $1000 and will be flying to Auckland to represent our school. We wish her the best of luck.
Last week, our talented senior Fashion students took centre stage at Newlands College's first World of Wearable Arts Fashion Show, delivering a mesmerizing display of creativity and innovation that left everyone in awe. As can be seen by the photos the array of talent on display was extremely impressive.
