Cultural connections were celebrated on Tuesday this week. It was amazing to see the Year 11 cohort working together. They chose a country of interest and researched the culture. From there they came up with traditional food ideas and worked as a team to create a range of dishes. These were made available to all students at lunchtime. The school hall was buzzing with positive chatter. All students displayed our school's value of Responsibility.

The Year 10 cohort also chose a country and learnt a traditional game/activity. The full school rotated around these activities in the afternoon, this created a real sense of unity and coming together to enjoy learning outside the classroom.

Our teachers have commented on how this initiative has reinforced the teacher-student relationships within their manaaki classes. This has reinforced our school's value of manaakitanga.

On Tuesday, June 4th, our Year 11 Science students delved into the fascinating world of Biomechanics through an engaging workshop hosted by The University of Waikato. They participated in four distinct activities, each focusing on a different aspect of the triple extension movement (hip, knee, ankle). The students were thrilled to analyse measured data, which validated their sporting abilities and fitness levels. They particularly enjoyed the friendly competition, striving to surpass their own and their friends’ previous scores.
It was a fantastic day, providing valuable exposure to the science that influences various aspects of our lives.
