Rugby World Cup Strath

Last Wednesday we were lucky enough to host the legendary Sonny Bill Williams in our very own school theatre.

Volcanoes Y9
Recently, our Year Nine classes ventured to Mangere Mountain as a part of their topic on volcanoes in their Social Sciences course.

After having constructed models of these geographical landmarks as part of a project for their classes, it was time for a visit to the real thing. There, they were taken on tours all over the mountain courtesy of some very informative park managers, while being encouraged to take photos for a small competition within the year group.

Year 9 Volcanoes

As a part of this trip, the Year Nines also visited a lava cave on a nearby farm, where they were able to see solidified lava hanging from the roof.

Volcanoes Trip

Additionally, they gained the useful knowledge of how to evacuate the city in the event of an eruption, something that we hope will never happen but that we need to be prepared for.

Volcanoes Y9 Trip
It was great for the students to engage in some on-location learning, while getting a fair amount of exercise too, given the amount of walking involved.

Strathallan Art Trip

On Monday 13th of March, a group of 26 of us who study either A2 photography or A2 & AS Art flew to Wellington for the day. The main purpose of the trip was to visit the City Gallery to see an exhibition of Cindy Sherman’s photographs.

Year 7 Camp

Lauren Aylward and Yvonne Keene sum up their experience at their “amazing year seven camp at Kokako Lodge”.

Silver DOE Hunua
Last weekend, the Silver Duke of Edinburgh group tackled the Hunua Ranges on a 3 day tramp from Kaiaua to the Hunua Falls. They tramped through various bush and road treks and faced various challenges on the way, but overall had a very enjoyable time.

Year 7 XO

Year 7 students spent their lunchtime yesterday with a picnic and games - great way to build friendships and have fun.
