Robotics Farewell Manager & Team A
Last Saturday the Robotics Club had a farewell to our long serving manager Dan Parkes, as well as Team A. Dan has been involved with the club for five years. He can now enjoy spending Saturdays fishing. Dylan, from Team A, presented Dan on behalf of the club a signed card and hunting and fishing voucher to show our appreciation.
Team A, Harry Parkes, Dylan Kemp-Green and Pacey Landon are all off to University in a week or so. They have one more very important thing to do before then and that’s to represent the club at Nationals in Auckland. We wish them all the very best for this. Due to covid we are only able to send one team this year.
The club also had a fun mini scrimmage to wind up the season as a club. Team B, Liam Venman, Georgia Gifkins, Chaelim (Sylvia) Kim, Dominik Thwaites and Team C, Liam Smythe, Jose Berger-Pinto, Noah Evans McLeod were joint winners. We now look forward to the new game coming out around Easter. In the meantime the club will have competition that involves each team building two robots to compete in about a month’s time.
Instep Young Leaders’ Forum
The Instep Young Leaders’ Forum is officially open! But be quick – applications close on the 18th of February.
Applications are open to year 12/13 students. The IYLF is all about empowering our youth to lead, and equipping them with the skills to do so effectively. Spread the word far and wide, and join us in helping to support tomorrow’s leaders! And be sure to give us the best problem to have – too many quality applications to choose from!
Students are expected to bring their own face masks each day.
The school has issued many of the students with masks at first due to it being the start of the year, but it is the students responsibility to bring their own and look after them.
Surgical masks are able to be washed by hand and dried in the sun so they can be reused multiple times.
