Sad news

The following message was sent to our school community on Thursday, 2nd June.

It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that one of our students, DJ Aramoana, of 10CKRK, has died after being in hospital with cancer.

If any students need to reach out our counselling team is available via Instagram messaging or counsellors@mrgs.school.nz.

We are all thinking of DJ’s whānau with aroha.

The students on site Thursday and Friday have had the opportunity to make cards for the whānau. Any messages for the whānau will be shared from this post.

Moe mai rā DJ.

Okonomiyaki – Year 10 Japanese 150 150 Simon Whitlock

Okonomiyaki – Year 10 Japanese

On Wednesday 25th of May, our Year 10 Japanese class went to cook Okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki is a popular Japanese style savoury pancake. Due to a Covid restriction last year, we were not able to participate in any cooking activities. Melody and Paris put on a performance prior to the cooking day to encourage the class to take part in the cooking. Everybody enjoyed the food and said they had lots of fun during the class.

Some people poured in a small amount of the mixture and it was easy for them to flip the pancake without burning it or being too overcooked. However, some students poured too much batter and the pancake was unfortunately unable to be flipped over.

Overall, this experience was a lot of fun and all the students had a wonderful time. We are very grateful to our amazing Japanese teacher Ms Kojima for agreeing to let us cook Okonomiyaki.
