Love and information

Love and information 150 150 Simon Whitlock

Nothing can prepare you for the randomness of this show. Caryl Churchill’s masterpiece is a selection of mostly unrelated scenes which explore the ideas of love and information in a montage of humour, curiosity and poignancy. Be prepared to re-examine your own thoughts on love and information as you are thrown into the world of the play by our Year 13 Actors.
Mt Roskill Grammar School is excited to present by special arrangement with Play Bureau “Love and Information’. It’s been a long time coming, but we are so excited to be back on stage after lockdown and to be able to perform for you in our Studio from the 6th-8th August.

BP Business Challenge for Year 10 MRGS Students

BP Business Challenge for Year 10 MRGS Students 150 150 Simon Whitlock

We want the next big idea like Facebook, Uber or IPhone to come from a Roskill student.
The BP Business Challenge is a unique three-day learning programme to develop skills, connect students to their community and build their understanding of how successful businesses operate.
Students will learn to:
1. Adapt to change
2. Collaborate in teams
3. Increase their confidence
4. Develop their communication skills.
It is being held at MRGS Butler school hall on 5th, 6th and 7th of August 2020, during schools hours. There is no cost to students and all the resources will be provided by two external business consultants who are coming to work with our students.
We will also have inspiring judges on the final day, who will give feedback to our students on their progress. The judges include a top manger from KPMG, a franchise business owner, an international sports personality and a member of the parliament.
The entry is open to all Year 10 students. You do not have to be enrolled in Year 10 Business Studies to be a part of this exciting learning opportunity. You can sign up on this link – https://forms.gle/oLr1Yk36zYCZPpv17 or come see any teacher in the Commerce Department (upstairs E Block). We only have 20 spots remaining. The winning team will also receive $100 cash.

Euan McDougall competed at the NZ Chess Congress for two weeks in mid-January. This is the longest running annual chess event (and sporting competition) in the world.
Euan took the Under 20 champion in the NZ Junior Chess Championship, losing just one game. Games lasted 3-5 hours or longer, and Euan competed against 19 other players. He is keen to return in 2021 and hopes to do better in the Open and Blitz events against all ages.
