turanga tane Turanga Wahine Turanga Tane:
Turanga Wahine Turanga Tane 2015, if anything this competitive season, could be described as a roller coaster which offered thrills, spills, twists and turns, bringing both tears and laughter. With a short season the team worked hard in the first two school terms to rise to the challenge of a complex and strong competitive bracket. Once again the roopu was lucky to have beautifully crafted compositions from Matua Morehu Nikora, Papa Derek Lardelli and Matua Teina Moetara. More........

Gateway: Two of our students spent a week at Waitomo on a Marae-based Maori Tourism camp last holidays. Ethyn Milliken and Apirana Toheriri had a fantastic week and both thoroughly enjoyed the experience, learnt a lot about Tourism from a Maori perspective and came home feeling enthusiastic and 21 credits closer to NCEA Level 3. Days consisted of caving adventures,
marae based activities and learning about the impact of Maori tourism on our national economy. More........

mind lab Mind Lab: We make a lot of effort to give as much support as we possibly can to our students who find academia challenging. What do we do for those guys who revel in academic challenge? The boys we are thinking about, Year 9 and Year 10, all gained better than 196 credits out of 200 in the first credit period.
MindLab was put forward as a suggestion. More........
tu tane Tu Tane Night – Sharing Tu Tane - Tane Uetika: Three hundred and twenty men and Year 10 boys joined together in the school hall on June 10 for the latest Tu Tane ceremony. It is always an amazing feeling to have so many good men from our community join together to celebrate the growing of our young men. The general feeling was supportive and the strength that came from the evening is something that will continue to serve our community well. More........
tu whanau Tu Whanau: Parents of senior students may not be aware of our Tu Whanau programme because we only started Tu Whanau last year – with our 2014 Year 9 students. In 2015, our new Year 9 families have been included as well. Tu Whanau is about raising the achievement of our boys by involving you, the parents, in their education. Research shows that parental involvement makes a very significant difference to a student’s success – and has an even bigger effect than socio-economic factors. More........
