The week started at Monday lunchtime with the screening of three films written, directed and produced by students who entered the 48 Hour Film competition. At interval the choir performed in the Library serenading, from the top floor, the audience on the bottom floor.
July gateway 1

Gateway: This term we have three Year 12 students; Billy Richardson, Blake Ngarimu and Carter Murrell attending a new programme called The Warehouse
Red Shirt Customer Service programme. The aim is to offer work experience and help students transition from school into the workplace.

Sharing tu tane

The ‘Sharing Tu Tane’ ceremony was held early in Term 2 with all Year 10 students asked to bring a good man from home so that the ideas, lessons and units taught in the programme could be shared with them. The hall was filled with the fathers, brothers, uncles, grandfathers, friends and neighbours of the boys involved in the programme and the positive messages about manhood and being a good man were delivered.

Leadership breakfast

The School Prefects and Senior Leaders (Year 12) took part in a leadership breakfast on the 28th June. This was the second leadership seminar for the year. The first seminar in Term 1 was delivered by Maori All Blacks Coach Colin Cooper who talked about communicating with different types of people.

Ka ketekete te kākā, ka kotokoto te tuī, ka kūkū te kereru. Ko Kawakawa mai i Tawhiti te ngahere, i rangona ai te kōrihi, te tīorooro rānei a ngā manu tīoriori e koko ake rā ki te pūkaioreore ā, ka mau kē te wehi!
On Wednesday 2 July approximately 35 students from Gisborne Boys’ High School, Te Pito mai Tawhiti travelled to Kawakawa mai Tawhiti for the Tai Rāwhiti ngā Manu Kōrero competition.

Star programme Star Programme: We have had 36 students complete the learners
licence course which is great to see. We have used McInnes Driver Training for the past 5 years to deliver this programme and they are excellent at it. We have had an almost 100% success rate, with one young man just missing out once. He will sit again after some more confidence boosting computer sessions
and be fine.
