Sayonara Party for Nagisa Students

"Last Friday we held a Sayonara Party for our Japanese group from Nagisa High School. They really enjoyed their time here and were very appreciative to both the teachers and their Kiwi buddies who looked after them.

Thank you to the teachers who catered to the extra students in their class!  I am very appreciative". – Mihi Waaka

Otumoetai Rugby this Saturday 24th August

“Our Under 15 Rugby Players are in the final of the Bay-Wide Competition this Saturday 24th August.

The game is being played at Otumoetai College and the time has now been confirmed for a 12:30pm kick off.

The following players would love your support… Eli MacPherson, Jacob McLeod, Leo Smith, Nico Brown, James Johnson, Brayden Lee, Jasney Grant, Jacob Tawa, Kooper Smith, Maui Hunt, Cory Stafford, Tommy Gadsbey, Jackson Runga, Liam Black & Spencer McNeil.

We play Rotorua Boys’ High School, who are unbeaten all year, with an average victory of 50 points on their opposition. Without doubt, we are the underdogs, however, good things happen to good people”. – Coach Richard Brown

Year 9 Stars Program

Our Year 9 students have completed the third and final section of the Stars Program provided by the Graeme Dingle Foundation. Stars final project is a Community Adventure.

This involves your Year 9 student learning more about organisations available in our wider community and Otumoetai College Year 10 option subjects. On the 14th and 15th of August, all Year 9 students played Starsopoly alongside their Senior Peer Mentors. The Stars Community Adventure helps facilitate working together and respect for one and all – two of our school values.

We had a great turn out of community organisations from the Citizens Advice Bureau, Get Smart and St. John's to name a few. Youth benefit from the Community Adventure by developing communication skills, showing respect for others, learning to work as a team and understanding what it means to be part of a community. – Karyn Winters
