corss country

School Cross country:
Runners had to battle boggy underfoot conditions in this years School Cross Country, held at the traditional Sponge Bay Course on the last Wednesday of Term 3 (24th Sept). It was the wettest the course has been in years and those boys that enjoy wallowing in the mud had plenty of fun. We are lucky to have access to this land, with a true Steeple chase course that challenges all runners, so thanks to Peter Nolan for his ongoing support.

The Intermediate (U16) race was first, runners completing 2 “small laps” and covering 3.4km. Participation was good with over 220 runners taking part. Liam Melville ran a strong race and led from virtually the start to win. Layton Hockey was second and James Brott was third. Learn more....

motobike engineering

2014 School of Mechanical Engineering:
The majority of the boys were very enthusiastic and self-motivated to complete their Mini Motorbikes on time to enable them to qualify for entries and race them at Manfeild raceway in Feilding. 13 of the 17 students who started the course completed their bikes with plenty of time to spare and are eagerly awaiting the time to tick around before we head off on 13th October.

Travelling to Feilding to compete would not be possible if it wasn’t for the voluntary help from parents to assist in towing a trailer, transporting boys and assisting with supervision for the 3 days. Learn more....

september gateway

Gateway:
The Gateway programme is almost finished for 2014. With term 4 being so short (3 ½ weeks!) most students will finish their day with their employer at the end of term 3 and concentrate for those final few weeks on completing internal standards and exam practice, at school. All our students have conducted themselves extremely well in the work place and can be proud of their performance and behaviour.

We have already had two leave school to take up apprenticeships - Liam Sheridan, Electrical and Jacob Cook, Building. Congratulations to both boys, also Jonah Daunton who has been accepted to Waipaoa Station as a cadet.
