Week Nine - Term One, March 28th, 2016
There has been a lot of work going on in setting up viable businesses as part of Year 11 and 12 Business Studies and from that work a lot of opportunities for students to indulge their sweet and savoury teeth by buying a variety of delicious treats from various cultural backgrounds.
This year is the 30th anniversary of the fashion parade and the PTA are keen to involve anyone who are interested in being part of the nostalgia section of the event, in clothing appropriate to your teenage era. Please get in touch with Carol Jenkin (PTA Secretary) at Jenkin@xtra.co.nz .
Our dance students were very well served this week with the Royal New Zealand Ballet dancers coming on site to workshop with the girls. It was great to have this expertise available to our girls as they develop their skills.
On the same day that the ballet dancers were with us, our Maori girls from Kapa Haka were workshopping in the hall with dancers from the TK Rolleston group from Hamilton. Thank you to Maarangi and Alejandra for the time spent teaching our girls.
Congratulations to the Arts Council for organising a very successful Lip Synch event on Wednesday at lunchtime. The hall was filled to capacity, the acts were very entertaining and it was a great fundraiser for the council also. Third and second place getters in the photos below and a photo of the winners still to be tracked down!
The referendum is over and the results in and it was interesting to see how closely the results reflected those sourced from TGC’s Social Science department.
This article from the week before the final outcome show cased our girls’ thinking and it does appear to match with the majority of New Zealanders as we retain the current flag.
The Executive Council is very busy on several fronts and one of them this week was the Easter Egg exchange. The girls were selling $5, $3 and $2 packages and did a great job of selling backed up by very efficient delivery on Thursday trade to those lucky enough to be recipients of eggs.
