Donna
We farewelled Donna from MRGS at the end of term. We wish her well on her next chapter with her family.
To summarise only some of what was said about her at her farewell… Margaret spoke of Donna’s legacy of kindness and inclusion for our MRGS whānau, past and present. We are all aware of the ripple effect Donna has had not just on students and staff she has counselled and nurtured but those they have passed her lessons to. The Peace Foundation held her up as the model for Peer Mediation services. She supported numerous co-curricular activities and helped lead Drumbeat, Manaakitanga workshops, Travellers, Life Skills, and upheld her colleagues and our students in all that they undertook to build a culture of kindness and inclusion. Thank you for all you have taught us Donna. Her whakatauki:
Kaua e takahia te mana o te tangata
“Do not trample the mana of the people”.

On Friday, the 28th of June, 16 Mount Roskill Grammar students went to compete in the Bollywood Showdown at the Dorothy Winstone Centre in Freeman’s Bay.

The night was fun; filled with food, music and entertainment. Our school competed against 18 other schools in Auckland with over 1000 people who came to watch and support their team.

The highlight of the night was that we won the Best Sign award as Prashan’s family made a massive sign supporting our school. Overall, it was really cool to see other schools perform and see how much talent we have out there in the Indian community.

Ka mahuta a Matariki i te pae, ka mahuta ō tātou tūmanako ki te tau 150 150 admin

Ka mahuta a Matariki i te pae, ka mahuta ō tātou tūmanako ki te tau

Ka mahuta a Matariki i te pae, ka mahuta ō tātou tūmanako ki te tau
– When Matariki rises above the horizon, our aspirations rise to the year ahead.

As we take time to acknowledge this important date in the Māori maramataka (calendar,) it is important to reflect on the past year, take note of the present and look ahead to the future.

Wishing all our whānau the best over Matariki as we take the time to connect.

Ngā mihi i te tau hou Māori ✨️

Today, we celebrated Matariki at dawn on Puketāpapa. ✨

Under the twinkling stars, we took time to reconnect with our surroundings, remember our loved ones, celebrate the present, and anticipate the promise of a new year.

Matariki brings us all together to create something new, such as planting a garden and gathering to share kai which was what our tauira did in their workshops today.
