PACANZ Nationals 

The girls all danced amazingly in the heats competing 39th out of 42 troupes (and being the only school group, all others are private dance studios).
Unfortunately, we have not made the top 12 but they performed better than ever.



Also,......  from the very large modern section (77), unfortunately Alex Vanstone and Alexi Gilbert de Rios did not make the top 17 semifinals.


Makayla Wadsworth 1st in Speech and Drama (National Champion)

Amazing performances from all 3 students.

 Congratulations to all.

NZ Teachers Games - Dodgeball

A team of 8 teachers represented Otumoetai College playing Dodgeball for the inaugural NZ Teachers Games in the school Holidays. 
Our captain and leader was Rhys James.
The other team members were: Holly Wilson, Megan Smith, Christine Matheson, Bernice Quartermain, Adam Braddock, Mark Williams and Jarrod Watson.
We worked really well as a team, getting through to the third/fourth place play-off. Unfortunately, we lost the game to Tokoroa and came fourth overall.



Volunteers for Fundraising Opportunity - Aegis Security

Otumoetai College is always looking for fundraising opportunities to assist parents with funding for student sport and cultural activity.  Aegis Security offers parents one such opportunity by assisting at events such as Baypark speedway, school balls, Jetsprints, concerts and festivals. Duties include taking tickets, directing carpark traffic, staffing the gates and general security etc.  For many years, Otumoetai College have been providing parent volunteers who have successfully raised money for their child’s expenses for future sporting trips and international events.
We are currently seeking new volunteers.
To be involved you must be 18+ years. Reliably and commitment are essential.  Heather Jones, owner of Aegis Security, will allocate all duties.  You will be emailed 4 or 5 days prior to an event by the Sports Office who co-ordinates a list of volunteers back to Heather. 
Dress is black or navy tidy trousers and tidy shoes.  Shirts (and jackets, depending on the weather) are provided.  Duties are varied and often enjoyable plus once finished you can stay on to watch the event.
You earn $14 per hour.  These funds are paid to the College and then transferred to your student’s school account.
