Congratulations to the three Mt Roskill Grammar students who made it through the audition process to earn a spot performing with Parris Goebel and the Royal Family in GIRL at the Tempo Dance Festival 2019 later this year.
Parris Goebel and Sisters United are in the midst of creating a show that delves into the journey of young females discovering their inner power. For the cast, Goebel auditioned many young women from high schools around Auckland – many had never attended an audition before, and our own Karmella Reedy, Corrin Ansin and Keila Kaipo-Unuwai were selected.

International Day of Silence

International Day of Silence 150 150 Simon Whitlock

Friday 16 August was the International Day of Silence and over 90 schools in Aotearoa participated. The Roskill way is respect for all, no matter what our nationality, our culture, our religion, our gender or sexual identity, we treat each other with dignity and respect. We are all one. The Day of Silence was an opportunity to stand up against homophobic, transphobic and biphobic harassment using silence as a weapon. It was an opportunity to support the rainbow community and take a stand for social justice. We are proud of our student leaders using silence as a tool to take a stand for social justice and standing up against homophobia. Manaakitanga … respect and dignity for all.
