Year 13 Production “Love and Information” 150 150 Simon Whitlock

Year 13 Production “Love and Information”

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.

  • RECOMMENDED AGE: Best suited for audiences ages 13 years and over
  • PARKING: Best parking for the PFA studio is via the gate 1 entrance. Follow the driveway and utilise the parking beside the field and outside the Butler Hall
  • TICKETS: Tickets will be available on iTicket and from the school office for $10. Note: iTicket charges a $2.50 booking fee, with a maximum of $7.50 booking fee when buying in groups

MRGS Chess 150 150 Simon Whitlock

MRGS Chess

Old rivals Mt Albert Grammar and new rivals Western Springs College were among the schools challenging us at the Central Auckland ChessPower championship. Scores were equal going into the
5th round, but our greater depth of talent meant we could surge ahead in the last two rounds and win comfortably. We have now qualified for the Greater Auckland ChessPower championship. All our chess players performed well, exceeding expectations.
Congratulations to Joe Wang, undefeated on 7 wins out of 7, and to Baraa Zara, our new Year 9 star, who only dropped half a point with one draw. Sylvia McDougall was the top female, sharing 3rd place with Euan McDougall, Aydin Mustahib and Saahir Saheb (also year 9). Our new young talent bodes well for the future.
Congratulations to Crystal Chanwong and Celia Chanwong, just behind Sylvia as the top females, and all in training for the Auckland Girls’ Chess Championship. All are welcome to continue training any lunchtime in E9 as we prepare for more tournaments.

Pasifika Young Leaders 150 150 Simon Whitlock

Pasifika Young Leaders

On Monday 27 July, the Pasifika Learning Centre hosted an event called Community Pasifika Talanoa. The event was held to celebrate our Mt Roskill Grammar School Pacific Young Leaders and
acknowledge their leadership positions. It was also an opportunity for the Puketāpapa Local Board to share with us about the draft plan for the area. The evening was a beautiful celebration of our Young Leaders with whanau, dance and food. We are extremely proud of our students and their journey ahead. A huge thank you to Peter and Tili Leilua and their team for hosting this event and supporting the Pacific Young Leaders group.

Unitec Manaaki Whenua

Some of our Year 11 Te Reo Māori class along with Mr Syme spent the morning out at Unitec Marae as part of a manaaki whenua (working bee). They were able to learn about tikanga pā harakeke (sustainable environmental practices) and how to help take care of our natural resources and wāhi tapu (sacred sites). Ka mau te wehi!
