Term one is drawing to a close but there is still a lot a fabulous things going on in the Senior School. The Bard has been alive and well with over 300 students involved in directing and acting in our annual festival of Shakespeare. With final performances over three nights old girl and judge Dominique Scragg had the challenging task of determining the winners from some wonderful performances. Congratulations… and best wishes for the regional competition.
Our musical, Seussical, begins this week. The girls and staff involved have been working extremely hard to make this an exceptional experience for the performers and the audience. Director, Mr Tindall came up with a novel way to promote the show with a blender bike driven by staff pedal power producing wonderful smoothies for the girls. It was an activity enjoyed by all involved with all proceeds going to Seussical. We are very must looking forward to seeing the shows over the rest of the week.
Our water polo girls have also had a big term. Last week they defeated Dio to become the North Island Secondary Schools champions. A huge congratulations to all involved and especially to Tai Nimo and Caitlin Mary Parker Allen who were named in the tournament team. Bernadette Doyle was named player of the tournament after a fantastic tournament.
On Monday we have Scholars’ Assembly. A special event where we acknowledge those girls who have met the academic criteria to be eligible for a Scholars’ Badge or commendation. We are delighted to have old girl and past President of the Old Girls, Mrs Leigh Melville, as our guest speaker and to present the awards to the girls. Congratulations to all have worked so hard and attained the results to be recognised at this Ceremony.
This is my last piece for College Connections. It has been an honour and a privilege to head the Senior School over these many years with such wonderful girls, staff and parents. I leave with so many wonderful memories and wish you all the very best for the future.
