Japanese Restaurant Trip 150 150 Simon Whitlock

Japanese Restaurant Trip

On Wednesday the 14th of April, the senior students who are taking Japanese had a chance to go to a Japanese Restaurant named Nishiki in Freemans Bay. The students who took part in this restaurant trip had an amazing opportunity to try authentic Japanese foods and bond with other students who they may have not met before as they are in different year levels. While waiting for the food, some students had fun guessing the Japanese songs playing over the speaker. When the food arrived, the kinds of food served were things like Sushi, Miso soup, Oysters, Tempura, Tofu, Beef and so on. There were multiple students who could not finish their dinner and gave food to other students who finished the rest of their food. For dessert, students could choose the flavour of the ice cream; Green Tea, Sesame, Red Beans, Vanilla or Chocolate. The Sesame flavour was the most popular. We all enjoyed eating at Nishiki as it was most definitely a night to remember.

Special thanks to Miss Kojima for organising this event, and thanks to Mr McAlpine for driving a school van.

Alumni News – Eleanor and Victoria Mulrennan

Congratulations Eleanor and Victoria Mulrennan. NZ Surf Lifesaving awards – Surfcom Operator and Peer Mentor respectively


Congratulations to Eleanor and Victoria Mulrennan for taking out SurfCom Operator and Peer Supporter of the Year.

Eleanor has been a solid and reliable SurfCom Operator from the moment she started on the team. She is able to remain calm, professional, and make critical decisions under pressure.

She adapts quickly to different situations, thinks ahead and shows initiative. She was instrumental in the successful outcome of the HELP surfer rescue at Mercer Bay, which went viral internationally and won SLSNZ’s Rescue of the Month.

Her skill, clear communication style and extensive life-saving knowledge has impressed the Coastguard Operators, Surf Duty Officers and staff she has worked alongside – leading her to win SurfCom Operator of the Year in her first season.

Victoria has been an active Peer Supporter in the West Coast Auckland network over the past season, attending an impressive seven debriefs to support lifeguards involved in stressful or traumatic incidents.

She has also provided follow-up support, checking in on members in the days, weeks and months following these events to remind them of their counselling and support options and that they have someone to reach out to if they need help.

In addition to this, she has contributed to the development of new policies and procedures for Peer Support in Northern Region – helping to improve information sharing and follow up processes to ensure the service meets the needs of members.

United North Piha should be proud of producing these two outstanding members of Northern Region’s Search and Rescue Services.
