Week Ten - Term One, April 4th, 2016
Thank you to all staff for your work on the Interim Reports and their issue on Thursday. The next thing that we will be preparing for is the Year 9 and 10 Parent-Teacher Evening on Wednesday, April 14th. On-line bookings are open and all staff is encouraged to make contact with those parents who most need to have conversations about their daughter’s progress to date.
It is the 30th anniversary of the fashion parade and the PTA are keen to involve any staff who are interested in being part of the nostalgia section of the event, in clothing appropriate to your teenage era. Thank you to those staff who have been in touch with Carol Jenkin (PTA Secretary) at Jenkin@xtra.co.nz to volunteer your participation.

In the recent Secondary Competitions Mackenzie Groos and Monique Hawthorne won bronze for C2 doubles, Monique Hawthorne won bronze for freestyle and Tauranga Girls’ College was first equal with Napier Girls’ for best girls’ school.

On Wednesday night at Mount Maunganui College our students acted in two student directed pieces, both with Tate Fountain as director and although they were unplaced in a very high standard competition the girls did a great job! They performed excerpts from The Taming of the Shrew and The Tempest.
Te Kapa Haka o Ngati Ranginui were given the honour of bringing the Mauri back to Tauranga for three months after our regional competitions in February and since that time it has been at Huria Marae. They have identified 9 Kura that they would like to take the Mauri to and would like to bring the Mauri to Tauranga Girls College on Monday April 11th at 10.00am. Te Kapa Haka o Ngati Ranginui will bring the Mauri on accompanied by Kaumatua and will provide a short korero on the Mauri itself and how we have come to have this taonga for a short time.
Students involved will be out of class from 10.00am.
