1st X1 Boys Hockey Moving up a Grade 150 150 Simon Whitlock

1st X1 Boys Hockey Moving up a Grade

The first round of competition has ended with a thrilling final game against Macleans College. We needed to win to advance to the Super City competition.
The day did not start well with game delayed by 1 ¼ hours. We rustled up some food for the late-night game and headed out on to a turf that more closely resembled a paddling pool. The rain persisted, our Fijian players ran twice as hard to keep warm, and although we could not find the back of the net, we defended well with the game ending with a score of 0-0.
As we needed a result, we headed to a penalty shootout and with Josh, our goalie, who having not touched the ball during the game, managed a fabulous defensive play and held out the oppositions shots on goal. The result was a victory to Mount Roskill and entry into the Super City A Grade competition, somewhere the team has not been for a few years. A great result for the team that is getting better and better each week.

Year 13 Production ‘Blood Brothers’ 150 150 Simon Whitlock

Year 13 Production ‘Blood Brothers’

Congratulations to the cast and crew of the Year 13 Production ‘Blood Brothers’ which performed four times recently in the Performing Arts Studio. The story follows twin boys born in Liverpool in the 1950s, then separated and their lives growing up over the next few decades. It is a story that follows ideas of superstitions and nature vs nurture in a show that has moments of joy, humour and tragedy. The cast performed beautifully and had so much professionalism in their approach; we had wonderful reviews from our audience because of their incredible commitment on and off stage. The cast would like to thank the crew so much for their hard work especially Mark England for making such a beautiful set.

Matariki 150 150 Simon Whitlock

Matariki

Ka puta Matariki, ka rere whānui
Ko te tohu tēnā o te tau e
“Matariki reappears, Whānui starts its flight
This signals the beginning of the new year”

Each year we celebrate Matariki as a campus, where all three schools come together to celebrate the Māori New Year. It is always an awesome event where we celebrate our students coming together as one big whānau. Our students and Kapa Haka group represented our school with mana and pride and we are very proud of  them!
