This week (15-19 Aug)  is the MRGS CULTURAL WEEK hosted by your 2022 School Prefects! Keep a look out for their amazing stalls and activities that will be taking place between Wednesday and Friday at lunchtimes!

Peace Week at Roskill – 8th-12th August 150 150 Simon Whitlock

Peace Week at Roskill – 8th-12th August

The power of unity

We had a very exciting week last week bringing peace, kindness, unity and inclusiveness to our Roskill community.

White ribbons, Random Acts of Kindness, Peace Quotes, Peace Tshirts & Banners, Face & Rock painting…

On Wednesday, our “Celebrating Diversity & Anti violence Stall Day” had wonderful student- led stalls: Skittles/ PSSP/ SYNC/ NETSAFE/ Amnesty/ It’s Not Ok Campaign/ Japanese Origami as well as stalls from YOUTHLINE/ YOUTHLAW/ RPE/Odyssey House & Puketāpapa Youth Board.  The Hall was awash with students having fun engaging with the stall activities.

On Thursday, we had our fund raiser BBQ halal/ vegetarian/ meat sausage sizzle raising funds for our local families in need.

The finale was our PEACE MARCH which was a joyous event in the sun, bumping into Government Minister Michael Wood, and our lovely Intermediate students on their country run!

The theme this year: “The Power of Unity” is very apt given the world we live in today with wars, covid and the inequities within our system.

As the Dalai Lama says:

“Our world and our lives have become increasingly interdependent, so when our neighbour is harmed, it affects us too. Therefore we have to abandon outdated notions of ‘them’ and ‘us’ and think of our world much more in terms of a great ‘US’, a greater human family”.

A BIG Thank you to the MEDIATORS & FRIENDS who worked hard, together as a FAMILY to make Peace Week the enjoyable week it was!

A special thank you to Zane Carter, Iti Peraua & the Property Team, The Food & Hospitality Dept nd Learning Extension for all your support.
